Description

Iceweasel is blobbed with the plugin described in the title of the issue, which automatically sends data to Mozilla and TokBox, Inc (its developers) that feature cannot be blocked, and this plugin cannot be removed or disabled, it has been imposed to us. Despite what Mozilla says in this page: https://www.mozilla.org/en-US/privacy/firefox-hello/ about that they care for our privacy, we can't be sure if it is really true, given the fact that Mozilla has said in the past they will adopt EME to not lose its popularity (this another problem worth discussing).

Point number 5 of the Terms of use, is very scary (see: https://www.mozilla.org/en-US/about/legal/terms/firefox-hello/). Point 6 describes vague and ambiguos terms, and a wrong use of the word 'proprietary', even if its license is MPL 2.0 we shouldn't trust it.

The feature was removed? As long it is not proprietary software, it should be available for those users who want to use it (i.e.: me).
