And yes, you have to turn off features in firefox to avoid similar spying behavior, but it can be done without maintaining your own version of the source code.
But we need to monitor Firefox. A minute ago I deleted 7 Yahoo entries in about:config. Using Wireshark I noticed connections to a Yahoo thingy. If you clean about:config from all unwanted entries, you might automagically get new unwanted entries after a while. I consider my machine as a digital audio workstation with less security and less privacy. Pale Moon seems not to be (much) better. Maybe QupZilla is a little bit better, at least the history is better usable :D.
Tor browser, or Jondofox are another possibility. I'm pretty sure jondofox can be easily configured to go directly out to the internet without using their network (not that TOR or Jondo network's are bad, just too slow for many uses. I do use both TOR and Jondo networks at times) and the browsers (both Tor and Jondofox are based on firefox) have been modifed and hopefully spy features have been removed.
