Remove fpn from exceptions in Abrowser settings of bootable USB?

Anytime I have to readjust the Abrowser Privacy&Security settings of the bootable USB after having been logged out, in the Exceptions for "Warn you when websites try to install add-ons" I see (leaving out the dots)
fpn firefox com
fpn firefox com^privateBrowsingId=1
listed as exceptions
I find this problematic because Firefox Private Network (fpn) uses Cloudflare. Having fpn listed as an exception, so I would not be warned if it tried to install an add-on, makes me feel uncomfortable. Can you explain why Abrowser comes with this exception already in it? Can you make Abrowser so it does not automatically show up as an exception? A user could always choose to make it an exception if they wanted to. After having removed those two lines in the past on installed Trisquel, I've seen them 'be there' again sometimes after updates. They've also shown up in Basilisk.

Mozilla says they charge users for FPN:

https://fpn.firefox.com
https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/products/firefox-private-network/payments

Did you subscribe to that service?

Not sure whether you asked me, but I did not/do not subscribe to fpn.

My laptop has dual-boot of Trisquel and Parabola (separate disks). I am now running iceweasel on Parabola, there is no such exception. I will check abrowser after I reboot on Trisquel.

Can't log in at the link you suggest. Followed suggestions there to get an account set up. Once that is done can follow up on your suggestion. Thanks!

Please, send a message to devel mailing list requesting the gitlab account.
As there is no automation, it is required manual intervention.

Okay, am subscribed to the devel mailing list (that was quick). Will send them email requesting gitlab account. Thanks, Ark74!
Btw, what do you think of my post regarding Trisquel mini includes AbiWord, which offers Google Search as part of its Tools. In case that should be reported as a bug, maybe reply to that post, but perhaps AbiWord includes it on purpose assuming many people would use it anyway. But if Trisquel mini is a libre OS should it include AbiWord which directly offers Google Search? If you have any thoughts on this you could reply to the post 'AbiWord ...' [To be clear I am not promoting GS, in fact don't use it myself, I think it should be clear what I'm trying to say and get clarified.]
