Just to be clear, is it Debian's modifications that prevent me from enabling Firefox "Studies" to get the Mozilla supplied workaround for the extension disaster of 2019?

The option is greyed out with the text: "Data reporting is disabled for this build configuration".

don't read the comments on that post, I feel for you, Mozilla.

@Greg seems likely; there was blowback on that Mr Robot advert mess

OTOH, you *can* install firefox extensions with apt, and they will work fine as the expired cert does not affect them. xul-ext-ublock-origin

@Greg or maybe they only support studies for binaries they built
