A PKGBUILD for Firefox with defaults for the privacy-conscious and power users

Changes

  • Completely disables Pocket
  • Completely removes Mozilla's new remotely pushed hidden extensions (Telemetry Coverage, Search Telemetry, etc). These anti-features don't respect Firefox's telemetry settings.
  • Removes advertisements from the New Tab page and settings for "recommendations"
  • Add option to restart browser to file menu (currently not possible for WebExtensions)
  • Give the user the ability to disable Mozilla addon signing requirement by setting an about:config option
  • Use DuckDuckGo by default
  • Set Google's Safe Browsing off by default (can be enabled if desired)
