Mal eine Frage zum Thema Firefox Addons uBlock Origin und uMatrix.

Eigentlich braucht man doch nur eines der Addons und nicht beide, oder?

HTML Standard
The ping attribute, if present, gives the URLs of the resources that are interested in being notified if the user follows the hyperlink. The value must be a set of space-separated tokens, each of which must be a valid non-empty URL whose scheme is an HTTP(S) scheme. The value is used by the user agent for hyperlink auditing.

Browser diversity is crucial for an open web. "You are both consumer and producer. You have a say in how the future plays out." ... "an Internet that runs only on Chrome’s engine, Blink, and its offspring, is not the paradise we like to imagine it to be." https://css-tricks.com/the-ecological-impact-of-browser-diversity/ #firefox #chrome #edge

Firefox extremely slow to load pages after startup - try deleting the profile Archived subdirectory


I've been experiencing this problem the last two weeks or so - Firefox starts up but it takes a few minutes to load the pages. Deleting the Archived directory seems to solve the issue. You'll find this folder in your Firefox Profiles directory under a directory called "datareporting". Note you may find a few named profiles there but just delete this Archived directory in each one you find. It causes no harm and loses none of your settings.

So in Linux you should find that at /home/yourloginname/.mozilla/firefox/firefoxprofilename.default/datareporting/.

Windows may have it under: %APPDATA%\Mozilla\Firefox\Profiles\LastModifiedDir\DataReporting\Archived.

"A former high-ranking Mozilla executive has accused Google of intentionally and systematically sabotaging Firefox over the past decade in order to boost Chrome's adoption."

"He is not the first Firefox team member to come forward and make such accusations in the past eight months; however, his allegations span far beyond current events and accuse Google of carrying out a coordinated plan that involved introducing small bugs on its sites that would only manifest for Firefox users."

Google users can sign into Firefox and Edge with a security key

Until now, you've had to use Chrome to sign into your Google account with a security key. You won't have to be quite so choosy going forward, though. Google has transitioned to using the new Web Authentication standard for hardware-based sign-ins, making your key useful in Firefox, Edge and other browsers that rely on the format.

Y'all should be using #Firefox containers for your site-isolating and anonymous browsing needs and I wrote about them https://spin.atomicobject.com/2018/10/29/virtual-browsers-firefox-containers/ #privacy


 
The direction #Firefox is taking is very worrying.

Does anyone have a list of all configuration flags that should be changed in Firefox to guarantee security and privacy? And how to apply them programmatically to secure a new installation of Firefox?
