Annoyance: hit "temporarily allow..." and the page comes back with a whole new bunch of stuff you have to allow. Sometimes you have to hit that button 3 or 4 times to get a "clean" page.

good example of the kind of dirty web content where i think hard whether i really, really need to see this...

Actually, a lot of the time the content is viewable after just the first click, leaving everything else disabled. Of course I don't usually need to read that newspaper article (it's usually some journalistic site) but often want to.

Publishing news is getting more and difficult to make any money from, so these webmasters are grasping at any straw...

(I feel quite selfish disabling scripts and turning off ads so the site can make their income from other users than me, but I do it anyway, and that's a topic for another discussion.)

Re: What browser addons do You use?

i will have to investigate how noscript works without my other favorite addon, requestpolicy.

because quite often (~50%) it is enough to allow requests to an external site, without allowing scripting.
i am not sure whether noscript does that also (sort of combining simple html requests & javascript requests to external sites, and just blocking both).

Formerly I used

And a rigorous "storage philosophy" in the settings of the FF
No cokies
No chronicle

For about 6 months I use
-flagfox
-uBlock
And said storage philosophy. The website cache is regularly emptied.

I can work fluently. smile
uBlock runs in the default settings.
The increase uMatrix is disabled because I do not find time.

Here in the "Wunderland Deutschland" I am in the fortunate position, for banking business does not have to use the browser. There is a wide range of software for this.

Re: What browser addons do You use?

could somebody point me to a youtube download helper addon (this is for a windows machine) that does not bog down the browser and does not phone home or other such nonsense?

Re: What browser addons do You use?

I forgot to list my addons. It's a huge list, and still more are "disabled", but every time I check for some to remove, they all seem to have a purpose...

(Sorry, but I was too lazy to put in all the URLs - search the extensions site.)

security/annoyances:
Adblock Plus
NoScript
Keep Until Closed    First set Fx to keep cookies till end of session, then delete. This addon lets a whitelisted site keep them. Perfect (for me).
Restore Open_External    When you click a link in your email client it opens in a new tab in the background. Essential IMO.
bug489729(Disable detach and tear off tab)    Infuriating thing where tabs suddenly get moved around. Stop it.

interface tweaks:
Classic Theme Restorer    Comprehensively restore the GUI to what you knew and loved. Many options.
Status-4-Evar    Get back the status bar messages.
Stylish    Custom css for individual sites.
Document Font Toggle    Choose whether to enforce your standard font or not.
NoSquint    Custom font sizes for individual sites.

utilities:
ScrapBook    A wonderful extension! Keeps local copies of pages - as transparent html+extras - which are editable. Easy to sync between machines with eg dropbox.
LiveClick    Excellent if you have a pile of rss livemarks.
Session Manager
Textarea Cache    For when you type a long reply, then move off the page...
Text Link    5.0.2016031501    Just double-click a plain-text url. Nice.
Flagfox
Keyword Search   
Print Edit
Resurrect Pages

Not at all a browser add-on, but youtube-dl is available for Windows as well: https://yt-dl.org/latest/youtube-dl.exe

yep, i actually downloaded it, but i find it more cumbersome to use the command line in windows for some reason ... and it's also supposed to be for other users, and the chance that they open a terminal and start typing commands is exactly nil.

Re: What browser addons do You use?

Standard Firefox ESR (45.9.0)
- Canvas Blocker
- Decentraleyes
- HTTPS Everywhere
- Privacy Badger
- NoScript
- uBlock Origin

This lot usually means a lot of broken sites, so i selectively enable JS in NoScript for sites i visit frequently.

For things that i need to work properly (banking, Amazon, etc), I'll use Chromium/Chrome.

Re: What browser addons do You use?

I use Chrome (Yup, that one) because... well, it just works. If the Google corporate masters feel I'm important enough to take a whiff, they're welcome to it. 

My list of addons is about as boring, uBlock Origin and that's it.

Banking of any kind is done at location. Any eCommerce is conducted using a dedicated account for that purpose with funds added accordingly.

Has anybody tried uMatrix?

i am trying it now.
it was recommended to me previously in a different context - because it (the SAME addon, not some approximation as with noscript) also exists for chrome/ium. my question was how or if i could recreate my current privacy/ad/scribt-blocking experience if i changed to chromium-based.

anyhow, i'm trying it now on palemoon.

Wow, that's exactly what I needed (but did not know about it)! Thanks a lot!!

It turns out that it won't be developed anymore, but there is Textarea Cache Lite.

I'd like to mention a great add-on for organizing bookmarks: Viewmarks (it might have issues on newer FF though).

And don't forget about (super-)cookies: CookiesManager+ to check them, Cookie Controller is great too, and there is BetterPrivacy against supercookies.

Edit: Just tried Resurrect Pages. It's a great add-on. However I was unlucky e.g. with this site and with this one as well (although for the later there is even an archive.org snapshot). Is there any magic trick to get sites like those back? I often have this issue when opening old bookmarks.

Re: What browser addons do You use?

Not sure if this firefox addon has been mentioned before, apologies if it has.

Tiled tabs, this is a brilliant idea, especially when working in a web browser, reading info from one page and working into another.

Ad Block Plus and Tribal Profile theme (nice dark theme that looks even better on Palemoon) under Firefox and Palemoon.  I also use the Tribal Profile theme under LibreOffice.

Re: What browser addons do You use?

New one for me:

Regex Find

It's marked with the dreaded LEGACY label though and I don't think it will be updated so enjoy it in firefox-esr while you can...

Re: What browser addons do You use?

^ Oooh, good catch vasa1 — thanks!  ops

FF v55 says:

Please note this add-on uses legacy technology, which gives it access to all browser functions and data without requesting your permission.

yikes

I've removed the addon and the link...  hmm

Re: What browser addons do You use?

BTW, there's https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/ … edit#gid=0

which purports to be a list of add-ons and their WE status. I don't know who maintains that list or anything about it. I came across it in https://www.wilderssecurity.com/threads … st-2701883
