Revision Content

Privacy?

At creating a OpenSearch plugin for Firefox 2.0 , I have to specify the a URL of the type="application/x-suggestions+json" where the search suggestions are stored.

This causes that the search suggestions are stored on the server. If I do not like this, because of privacy:

1) Can I prevent a plugin to store on a server as User of Firefox ?

2) What ULR do I have to use, that these things are stored locally ?

The "application/x-suggestions+json" URL in your plugin file has nothing to do with where suggestions are stored - it's the URL used to obtain the suggestions. These suggestions are displayed once and then discarded. These kinds of "suggestions" are different from the standard "history" results, which are stored in the user's profile, on disk. gavin 05:50, 31 October 2006 (PST)
