These skip-list entries were shipped for the experiment described in Bug 1590149. The specific records related to this experiment are:

0: Object { schema: 1571936080266, feature: "fingerprinting-protection", pattern: ",*", … }
2: Object { schema: 1571936118321, feature: "fingerprinting-protection", pattern: ",*", … }
3: Object { schema: 1571936035244, feature: "fingerprinting-protection", pattern: ",*", … }
4: Object { schema: 1571936002704, feature: "fingerprinting-protection", pattern: ",*", … }
5: Object { schema: 1571936145819, feature: "fingerprinting-protection", pattern: ",*", … }

We can decide when to revert these changes depending on the results of the experiment and our fingerprinting blocking shipment plans.

We've decided to remove the skiplist entries for,, and prior to the Firefox 72 release. The remaining skiplist entries from and will be kept temporarily while we work through breakage issues with the respective companies. That work is tracked in Bug 1599124 and Bug 1590077, respectively.

I'll submit a change on remote settings to remove the three entries listed above and file follow-up bugs for the remaining entries.
