    What is WebRTC? WebRTC is a new communication protocol that relies on JavaScript that can leak your IP address.

    If your using TenFourFox it is vulnerable.

    Safari WebKit r187880 is NOT vulnerable.

    To test your browser go to -> https://www.privacytools.io/webrtc.html

    How to disable WebRTC in TenFourFox?

    In short: Set "media.peerconnection.enabled" to "false" in "about:config".

    Step by Step:
    • Enter "about:config" in the TenFourFox address bar and press enter.
    • Press the button "I'll be careful, I promise!"
    • Search for "media.peerconnection.enabled"
    • Double click the entry, the column "Value" should now be "false"
    • Done, do the WebRTC leak test.

    If you want to make sure every single WebRTC related setting is disabled change these settings:
    • media.peerconnection.turn.disable = true
    • media.peerconnection.use_document_iceservers = false
    • media.peerconnection.video.enabled = false
    • media.peerconnection.identity.timeout = 1

    Now you can be 100% certain WebRTC is disabled.

    Mind if I add these to my thread as an optional set of tweaks?

    Thanks, I'll put that up later tonight after I've made the changes myself at home.
