Follow-up Comment #2, bug #51666 (project wget):

I'm not generally against these kind of small tweaks that don't harm and
slightly improve user's privacy.

If Firefox doesn't do it, we don't care: it's their business and they will end
up doing it if users request that feature (maybe because they saw it in
wget).

Private SSH keys can be protected with a password if you want to.

complete home directory

We can do both, hash and still keep the readable to the user only. If the
overhead is not much I would go for it. That is the basis of every security
framework out there: if the benefits of having 2 security mechanisms instead
of only 1 outweigh the drawbacks, then implement 2 instead of 1.
