Same with 42.3 or the hotfix-update-xpi-intermediate would not install (or
didn't appear to). I enabled studies, restarted and clicking on studies now
shows the hotfix as a study. First time I ever heard of them. My policy is
lock down all bi-directional traffic except allowing submission of
crash-reports. Seems we need to look further into studies. Glad this fiasco
over. KDE3 Konqueror is no substitute as a web-browser :p Great
but terrible browser....

There was a big discussion about the "studies" and "normandy" few days
ago [0]. Seems like they are enabled by default for many people, which
suggests Mozilla has learned nothing since the Mr. Robot incident. [1]
[2] Well, I guess it's time to move on.

FWIW, openSUSE Leap 42.3 and 15.0 fixed Firefox packages were released.
