Hi There!

I have nothing against the Mozilla statement 'Put Your Privacy First' but totally disagree with new construction of Firefox 72.0.1, especially

"text/html,application/xhtml xml,application/xml;q=0.9,image/webp,*/*;q=0.8"

If "image/webp" cannot be remove this is a security breach, because of the following:
- The accepted file types are transmitted.
- The causes considerable differences to other surfers, and, owing the circumstances an observer may gather information about your browser and about the software installed on your computer.
- Thereby, even the operating system that you are using may become, indirectly, visible.

Without "image/webp" I have had almost perfect browser test results, i.e. 5.97 bits of identifying information.
With the presence of image/webp the identifying information growing up to level 12.91 bits.

The Mozilla Firefox guys are thinking that all of the internet users eat chicken with the bones.

Anyway, I would like to discuss about the browsers problem with Kali Linux specialists, because I'm sure there are wonderful professionals involved in this forum.
