Firefox: Disable feedback / heartbeat system

Warning: This page is a part of an archive now and will be removed in the future.

In Firefox 37 Mozilla implemented a feedback system called “heartbeat”, which should help to build a better browser.
Maybe you will be forced from this system or it may feel a bit flashy. Fortunately there is an easy possibility to disable the rating system in the about:config:
  • New tab -> Enter about:config in your address bar and press enter.
  • Confirm the message “This might void your warranty!” with “I'll be careful, I promise!”
  • Enter the following as filter:
    browser.selfsupport.url
  • Edit the entry with the same name with a double click and empty the content of it.
From now there should not popup any part of the “heartbeat” rating system again.
