Tell me there's not a backdoor in Firefox.

Dillweeds, I have it in a chroot jail which gives it all away.

Code:
(firefox:4503): GLib-GIO-WARNING **: Error creating IO channel for /proc/mounts: No such file or directory (g-file-error-quark, 4)

(firefox:4503): Gtk-WARNING **: Attempting to store changes into `/root/.local/share/recently-used.xbel', but failed: Failed to create file '/root/.local/share/recently-used.xbel.A5M74W': No such file or directory

(firefox:4503): Gtk-WARNING **: Attempting to set the permissions of `/root/.local/share/recently-used.xbel', but failed: No such file or directory

(firefox:4503): Gtk-WARNING **: Attempting to store changes into `/root/.local/share/recently-used.xbel', but failed: Failed to create file '/root/.local/share/recently-used.xbel.KES74W': No such file or directory

(firefox:4503): Gtk-WARNING **: Attempting to set the permissions of `/root/.local/share/recently-used.xbel', but failed: No such file or directory

(firefox:4503): Gtk-WARNING **: Attempting to store changes into `/root/.local/share/recently-used.xbel', but failed: Failed to create file '/root/.local/share/recently-used.xbel.01RE5W': No such file or directory

(firefox:4503): Gtk-WARNING **: Attempting to set the permissions of `/root/.local/share/recently-used.xbel', but failed: No such file or directory

(firefox:4503): Gtk-WARNING **: Attempting to store changes into `/root/.local/share/recently-used.xbel', but failed: Failed to create file '/root/.local/share/recently-used.xbel.G7SE5W': No such file or directory

(firefox:4503): Gtk-WARNING **: Attempting to set the permissions of `/root/.local/share/recently-used.xbel', but failed: No such file or directory

Interesting hack attempt nonetheless.

Also it's kind of lame to attempt to hack me and then attempt to censor me posting it.

But I guess there's freedom of speech as long as you can still get through with a VPN.

It's not firefox specific. Your error logs are indicating that firefox simply tried to register itself with the recently-used file, but was unable to due to problems with path, permissions, or something else. If you've hardened your linux install at some point, perhaps you changed the recently-used file to read only in an effort to stop GTK from logging user activities. It's a common practice, and will indeed generate these errors.

You can relax, this is normal behaviour. I wouldn't say that there aren't backdoors, or other mechanisms which compromise your privacy, but this specifically isn't one of them.

Bullshit. I've ran it for days without any error messages whatsoever. Those files have never existed from day one when I created the chroot jail... and never will.

Oh and the first was for /proc/mounts...
Like FF needs to know my mounts, har-de-har-har!

You are going to believe what you believe. I won't try to convince you otherwise. I simply wanted to point out that your error logs are showing GLIB errors during mount discovery as a part of the recently-used job, and that firefox noted the exception when it tried to register itself in GTK's recently used list.

Sorry for trying to help. You asked, after all. Hugs

Here's the deal, I have all these so called computer geniuses proclaiming that it is "normal", when not one of them has ran Firefox in a chroot jail to know what "normal" is.

It would be quite apparent to anyone running FF in a chroot jail that this is NOT normal. Try it and see. Want a link to a version of FF setup in a chroot jail? I dare you to try and reproduce the errors shown.

Why are you being a hostile asshole?

If you want to argue and build a case for your paranoia, go for it, but don't waste my time by soliciting the opinions of others if you only intend to shit on them. Good luck, and good day.

Truth be told, I am a tad bit frustrated- not directed towards you though.

That the first time I've heard a man complaining of a backdoor.
