               no other add-on enabled
firefox 47.0.1 a test profile with defaults, IOW Edit > Pref > Security
               all that warn and block crap enabled, no URLs removed in
               about:config, no Add-on
icecat 38.8.0 with Block execution of non-free JavaScript disabled
icecat 38.8.0 with Block execution of non-free JavaScript enabled,
              then IceCat complains, but the link works anyway
