Tails 5.17: workaround for the webp critical vuln for the time being

Re: Security Vulnerability fixed in Firefox 117.0.1, Firefox ESR 115.2.1, Firefox ESR 102.15.1, Thunderbird 102.15.1, and Thunderbird 115.2.2 — Mozilla

While waiting for a new version of Tails with TB 12.5.4+ (fx 102.15.1+), I guess image.webp.enabled = false in about:config is a reasonable workaround (of course you’ll have to toggle this boolean each time, as Tails is amnesic). Thoughts? Any negative side effects?

How about writing about the current situation and this (or a better, if any) workaround on the home mage the opens when you start TB on Tails?

Just a thought. Forgive me, if this is not the right place to talk about this. Thank you very much.

why not just use the patched release?
