Fingerprinting not adequate-reveals system info

Recommended Posts

Unlike with Firefox, CCleaner browser reveals certain system info such as the CPU, RAM and the video card you're using. I tested with many sites but the one I like the best is deviceinfo.me. Firefox does not leak this info using anti-fingerprinting methods.

Edit. I see that fingerprinting is disabled by default. It should be enabled. Now, it's good after enabling.

But why can't I move the addon store bookmark? I can only delete it?

That's very odd, Anti-Fingerprinting shouldn't be getting turned off.

In the Security & Privacy Center, in the top-right corner, is it set to Custom Settings or Recommended Settings? If it's on Custom, try setting it to Recommended (which includes Anti-Fingerprinting being enabled).

Does this seem to be occurring on any sort of trigger? (Updating, Windows switching user profiles on the computer, etc?)

(I just checked the Security & Privacy center, which I haven't in some time, and saw that Anti-Fingerprinting was enabled with the Recommended Settings.)

In regards to the Addon Store bookmark, I just right-clicked on it and deleted it, should be as simple as that.
