Nice touch. Mozilla has also deleted Telemetry data for that period as some users had to enable Telemetry to get the hot-fix.
"In order to respect our users’ potential intentions as much as possible, based on our current set up, we will be deleting all of our source Telemetry and Studies data for our entire user population collected between 2019-05-04T11:00:00Z and 2019-05-11T11:00:00Z."
@sohkamyung Surely a nice touch would be not building such telemetry and invasive features to begin with. And not taking hundreds of millions of dollars every year from Google and not being entirely funded by surveillance capitalists.
@jkb @sohkamyung Can you point me to where it states that telemetry and studies are opt-in? In my experience, they are enabled by default and you have to opt-out. There are some opt-in studies but the feature itself afaik is opt-out. Happy to be proven wrong if something has changed or if I missed something.
@sohkamyung @phoe I still would like them to just post fix so anybody can download it/verify and install themselves than just "you need to enable studies/telemetry/whatever to get the fix, but we'll be nice and delete the data". If I can' trust them to handle certificate with fixed expiration date for the second time in a row, I don't really trust them with anything anymore.
Some details on that in this companion post about the technical aspects of the outage
