    Information SHIELD studies let you try out different features and ideas before they are released to all Firefox users. Using your feedback, Mozilla can make more informed decisions based on what you actually need.

    When a study is available, you will automatically be enrolled if you meet the criteria. There will be occasions where Mozilla might prompt you for participation first. This will happen when a particular study needs to collect data that is not covered by default data collection policy. In these situations you'll see a complete disclosure of the data being collected in the study before you make the decision to participate. Firefox Pioneer is an example of an opt-in SHIELD study.

    When the study ends, the add-on will be disabled but you will be able to see it so you have a record of what studies you've participated in.

    This tutorial will show you how to opt-in or opt-out of being automatically enrolled in SHIELD studies in Firefox Quantum for your account in Windows 7, Windows 8, and Windows 10.

    can't opt out of insider program

    The Windows Insider Program is listed in Settings, Update and Security. That is where you sign up for it so you should be able to opt out there too.

    Associate .opt file with Notepad on Windows version 1803

    Hi Stewie66

    Right click an opt file, choose 'Open With' - Choose Another App

    Important - Check the box marked 'Always use this app to open opt . . .'

    If Notepad is not in the list, scroll to the bottom and click 'More Apps'

    You should find Notepad in that list . . .
