Shouldn't all browsers in Parabola come with LibreJS or an equivalent libre-checking feature?

librejs was never added to iceweasel; because it is not a requirement - icecat comes with librejs pre-installed though

Please may this ticket be changed to a packaging request for iceweasel-librejs?

sure it could definitely be that - i assume that no one requested it before because anyone who wanted it could simply use icecat or get librejs from GNU

if it is packaged, that raises the question of whether it should be required by 'iceweasel-hardened-preferences'

  • Subject changed from [iceweasel] Doesn't come with LibreJS, has "Pocket" enabled which loads links to junk news sites on the landing screen and makes tons of network requests to [iceweasel-librejs] add package

I think that iceweasel-librejs should at least be an optional dependency of iceweasel-hardened-preferences, but should be a hard dependency of iceweasel.

Alternatively, we could factor out LibreJS from IceCat and make it a standalone package dependency for both Icecat and Iceweasel.
