Firefox hardening

Sane security conscious settings

To use, place user.js in one of the following folders:

  • Unix-like (hidden folder): ~/.mozilla/firefox/
  • Windows: C:\Users<Username>\AppData\Roaming\Mozilla\Firefox\Profiles\yourprofile\

Notes:

  • DOM storage's size has been reduced, but has not been disabled for compatibility purposes;
  • webGL is turned on for my convenience;

Extensions:

======================

Firefox

Chromium*

Chromium requires Chameleon 0.6 in order to change the HTTP_ACCEPT headers, as well as the user agent (although replacing the latter is trivial).

Flash users, disable font enumeration if possible (mms.cfg). Firefox users ought to use freshplayerplugin, a ppapi2npapi compatibility layer that allows Firefox to use Chrome's up-to-date pepperflash.

=====================

For a user.js with more emphasis on security (occasionally at the cost of functionality, like when you completely disable DOM storage, for instance), and less emphasis on blending in, check pyllyukko's user.js. To compare privacy conscious user.js files, use jm42's compare-user.js.

You can’t perform that action at this time.
