No one wanted that dumb addon and most users aren't going to opt-out -
that is why "opt out" systems are a scam; what mozilla did was
incredibly wrong and I can't believe you are sticking up for them
without even receiving a full time wage from mozilla.

bond with Mozilla right now)
tl;dr: please do google for “looking glass” and “mozilla”
Erhm. This is a *really* biased way of putting things. They did push an
(opt-out) study through the (opt-out, iirc) studies subsystem, that did
have the ability to alter page content.
That said, the add-on was not programmed to not show up in the ‘add-on’
screen (that I know of), it was just a regular opt-out shield study.
How many things does the average person need to keep track of when it
comes to opting out? did you know that if you get in to an accident and
need blood transfusions the local hospital may give you synthetic blood
that increases the chance of dying? guess you had better opt-out of that...
