Bug 1535189 Comment 4 Edit History

Note: The actual edited comment in the bug view page will always show the original commenter’s name and original timestamp.

To be clear: I only propose that users can explicitly opt-in via creating a, by default hidden, preference to willfully disclose a chosen preferred color scheme and still being able to use Firefox's general fingerprinting resistance. (`ui.systemUsesDarkTheme` offers itself since it is already used in that context and is hidden)

One could also or instead overload `ui.systemUsesDarkTheme` with another, entirely new integer value that explicitly says: Use the metric decided in bug 1529323, regardless of `resistFingerprinting`.


`privacy.resistFingerprinting` already has various papercuts that prevent some users that would like to at least partially benefit from it from using it (e.g. the default 1000x1000px(?) window size on restore), I'd just like to avoid adding even more.
