  9. Some of the truncated entries:
  10.  
  11. # Torbutton INFO: SSC: Set cacheDomain to
  12. # Torbutton INFO: Torbutton debug output ready
  13. # Torbutton INFO: SSC: Segmenting
  14. # Torbutton INFO: SSC: Parent
  15. # mozIThirdPartyUtil.getFirstPartyURIFromChannel
  16. # Torbutton INFO: SSC: No cache isolation parent
  17. # Torbutton DBUG: onLocationChange
  18.  
  19. I deleted the file and it wasn't recreated in the Tails 1.2 session,
  20. but this isn't a fix I'm looking for.
  21.  
  22. Why is Torbutton in DEBUG mode, spewing info about the sites you visit
  23. into amnesia user's .xsession-errors file and where can I turn this
  24. Torbutton DEBUG setting OFF?

  36. Thanks, filed as #8160.
  37.  
  38. You can redirect Torbutton's debug output to something else (e.g.
  39. the browser's JavaScript console) extensions.torbutton.logmethod in
  40. about:config. Or disable debug output with loglevelwith some pref in
  41. about:config. See https://www.torproject.org/docs/torbutton/en/design/
  42. for the meaning of the values that can be assigned to these prefs.
  43.  
  44. Cheers,
