Re: What browser addons do You use?

So I stumbled across this Privacy website -> https://www.privacytools.io/

Has a bit of a read and made a lot of changes to my "about:config" Then I started installing add ons and I ended up using.

Ublock Origin
Tamper Monkey
HTTPS Everywhere
Privacy Badger
Policy Control

Unfortuantely I have a lot of browsers installed on my machine all with various amounts of lockdown but reading this thread has got me back using FireFox again and surprisingly given how locked down the browser is I'm able to see the vast majority of websites without any trouble.

Re: What browser addons do You use?

Firefox, being my main browser:
-Ghostery
-Classic Theme Restorer
-an add-on to read my electronic identity card (yes, we have those in my country).

-and with Firefox at my other computers (I have a few...), an add-on that "cleans up" Firefox whenever I close Firefox, and whose name I can't recall right now. (I don't seem to find it in the list of add-ons, though.)

---

It is my experience that Firefox is slowly starting to become a bad web browser. Everytime I fire up Firefox, it takes a few seconds before it "works" (as if FF is hanging during those couple of seconds). I am noticing this in Linux (Mint, Debian, Bunsenlabs), as wel as in Windows (Vista) and OS X El Capitan.

I've never liked Chrome/Chromium much (for no particular reason, honestly). I occasionally use Opera.

Re: What browser addons do You use?

PSA: The Stylish extension has been bought by an analytics company and is now a datamining trojan. Replace it with Stylus, a fork of the last truly FOSS Stylish version which also happens to be 100% WebExtension compatible.

For WebExtension reasons, I also have replaced Self-destructing Cookies with Cookie Autodelete, because SDC won't be WebExtension compatible.

Re: What browser addons do You use?

^Thanks for the Stylish warning.

For cookies, I've been happy recently with Keep-Until-Closed
You have to set (in preferences#privacy) a policy of deleting all cookies after closing the browser, and the addon gives you a button to allow an exemption for the current tab. Simple.

As long as the original developer was running the show, several years, Stylish was totally trustworthy. The slide started with the new guy.

+1 for Stylus.

This has to be the most ads I've seen blocked in a single tab on my machine by uBlockOrigine.

Introducing a new Firefox feature, multi-account containers, which is likely to land around FF 57. It's available as a pilot web extension to users @ https://addons.mozilla.org/en-GB/firefo … ontainers/.

It introduces namespaces for say origin-specific data (cookies, local storage,) and provides a way of switching between and displaying them (colored tabs).

Currently not quite there because not very automatic and impractical (shortcuts, guys?) but looking good.

Re: What browser addons do You use?

Sadly, it's just a Youtube tab I used for couple of days. big_smile I've noticed counter going nuts after I've added the rule to block ad placeholder element positioned right to the player:

www.youtube.com###player-ads > .ytd-watch.style-scope > .ytd-player-legacy-desktop-watch-ads-renderer.style-scope:nth-of-type(1)

I'm guessing counter is probably showing element blocks together with ads, so number is a bit pumped up. smile

Re: What browser addons do You use?

I just heard about cpu hijacking to create crypto currency when you visit certain websites i shall not name here.

But there is a team on github with an addon to combat it.

https://github.com/keraf/NoCoin

https://addons.mozilla.org/en-GB/firefox/addon/no-coin/ --> but only for firefox 57 as its experimental, but there are other ways to combat it through add blockers --> Gizmodo - Crypto Coins

The noscript addon already stops remote scripting attempts and would thwart potential miners.

EDIT: This announcement was brought to you by The NeckBeard Collective monkey

Re: What browser addons do You use?

BBC recently did a documentary on the death of privacy: Listen or read.

"It emerged that all this data had come from a browser plug-in that these users had installed." They never name this plug-in. Anyone here know or having a guess?

i'd like to know, too.

however, i skimmed the article, clicked on 1 or 2 related articles, and everywhere i went i got the impression that sane browsing habits prevent these things, i.e.:
use noscript to block javascript - 90%
add to that intelligent cookie destroyers & a cross-site request blocker - 99.99%

Re: What browser addons do You use?

Does youtubes cookies listen on your ip or network in some way, reason i ask is that i dont log into youtube (dont have an account) and i have noticed that across two machines sharing the same internet connection that the recomendations in youtube come across very similar and sometimes the same videos. They must have a really smart algorith if so. I mean i will search something to listen to play it on one machine and then when logged into the other machine that same vid i played will be in the recommended videos on the other browser. I listen to some obscure stuff that would not be trending so there has to be something going on.

cookies don't actively do anything, but of course you should remove them as soon as possible or not allow them at all.

they do.
