Yes. There have been other ways to force an HTTP request from HTML mail
too (eg. background images, bug 239954) so this is not unexpected.
The "block loading of remote images in mail messages" option isn't
waterproof from a privacy point of view. It would be nice if it was, but
I'm not sure this is actually Mozilla's goal; perhaps worth filing a bug
to force the issue?
- turn off HTML in E-Mails (not possible in Mozilla?)
Should be possible - it is in Thunderbird (View->Message Body as->Plain
Text) and I highly recommend doing so.
