firefox-debloat (https://github.com/amq/firefox-debloat) preferences not applied to IceCat

browser.safebrowsing.downloads.enabled = false
toolkit.telemetry.unified = false
media.eme.enabled = false
geo.enabled = false
plugin.state.flash = 0

Preferences not found in GNU/Linux
media.gmp-eme-adobe.enabled = false



Leaks the real IP when using VPN/TOR. Description and demo.

media.peerconnection.enabled = false

Instead of completely disabling WebRTC you could also make it connect over the default route only using:

media.peerconnection.ice.default_address_only = true
