"Firefox intends to turn "trusted" lookup on BY DEFAULT for everyone, giving Cloudflare a copy of the world's browsing traffic. They promise to safeguard this data. But what if the US DoJ or NSA shows up & asks for a copy & promises the "terrorist support" issue gets settled? 4/5"

@waterbear You can try tweet @mozsec on twitter, tweeting at their executives, engineers, etc
