Seems like the Mozilla Looking Glass issue was a smaller problem than it was made out to be across the intertubes, since it was never turned on by default, and always followed their basic privacy rules (not collecting any data).

Of course it was a mistake to do it in the first place, but the impact was not great enough in the end that it would warrant any more than a "well, don't do this again" reaction.
