added pref "extensions.systemAddon.update.url" and set its value to an empty value in order to prevent automatic updating of system add-ons - note that "system"add-ons are different than normal user installed add-ons - for more info, see 'Removing the ‘Follow On Search’ system add-on'

diffs from ghacks version...

  • set media.autoplay.enabled to true since false breaks Vimeo video playback, possibly others
  • set privacy.clearOnShutdown.formdata to true to keep form data on shutdown
  • set security.tls.version.min to 2 since a value of 1 breaks cPanel login in my case
  • set security.OCSP.enabled to false - because i trust the SSL encrypted sites i visit and i don't do banking on-line, and because OSCP verification of certs can slow page load, i disable it

other changes...

  • added layout.css.devPixelsPerPx and set to 1.3 - this sets the zoom level for the entire UI, including webpages, buttons, icons, etc.
  • misc. minor changes in some descriptions

override "webgl.disabled" from ghacks code

@atomGit atomGit released this May 30, 2017 · 9 commits to master since this release

"webgl.disabled" war set to "false" to override the ghacks version

WenGL appears to be dependant upon JS being enabled (which should be disabled globally by default) so if you trust a site enough to enable JS, you may as well enable WebGL as well since the security risks with WebGL appear to be far less of a problem than JS

added "ui.use_standins_for_native_colors" pref to override a ghacks pref

@atomGit atomGit released this May 28, 2017 · 11 commits to master since this release

"ui.use_standins_for_native_colors" was added and set to "false" in order to override the current ghacks user.js where it is set to "true"

when set to "true", this made tool-tips unreadable for me with the default Firefox theme on Linux where the text color appeared to be the same as the background color (Windows users or others not using the default theme may not have this issue)

see here for the discussion regarding this pref:
ghacksuserjs/ghacks-user.js#129
