I keep wondering when people on this thread will discuss the relative merits of various rope materials? That is the "real definition" isn't it? ;)

On a more serious note, I agree with the question; it doesn't sound like a full cross site request forgery. Still Coderman's reply to your questions lead me to search for information on the Firefox "browser.chrome.favicons." That lead to this bit of information:


" * browser.chrome.site_icons must be true for this preference to have an effect.
" * Conversely, browser.chrome.site_icons should be false when this preference is false to disable site icons and favicons completely."


Given Coderman's statement about meeting "fortuitously in a black hat tryst," I set both to false. Thanks all for the info.

And for those people, like myself, who aren't up on all the acronymns, here is a link for CRSF:
