Initially, yes, but the specific reply of yours in question that Walt

That, or you did a piss poor job of quoting to keep the context of your
It was the exact quote that I just quoted to you that you
just said yes.
And being so that was the question that I asked. So the
answers given to that question refer to that question.
Walt said:

"Any bug a user sees as ACCESS DENIED is a security vulnerability."

You responded:

"In the Eyes of the beholder. It's up to the user. I have
been using said extensions for years with no security
problems. If I want/need to use them then I have the choice
to do so which harms no one.

Your response has nothing whatsoever to do with what Walt said.

I said as Walt had stated in a previous thread. Which was the same as Q stated- filing a bug about the fact that Fx can be configured not to verify add-ons. Evidently you didn't read the other thread at the time. Walt knows what I am talking about. It was in the m.s.firefox group which Walt said-"Thanks for reminding me I want to file a bug to block that patch."
Thread-Addon not verified.
In the Bug report that Q posted not all thought that it needed to be resolved a a couple were against banning the user from making changes that give him what he wants. A couple wanted it made so that the use can make those changes but stop malware from making those changes.

So, as I said, you either misunderstood Walt, or failed to properly
limit the quoted text to provide the correct context for your response.
