firefox profiles with security presets & userchrome styles

Summary

The purpose of this project is to provide a way to create new firefox profiles with security & privacy settings already preset.

It also includes some style customizations using userChrome.css.

Usage

You can then rename/copy the script to the profile name required (script filename = profile name).

Optionally you may also want to change the profile_folder variable (default is $HOME/.ffox_profiles)

Features

creation of new profiles with:

  • security & privacy related settings
  • custom style overrides
  • use RAM for caching
  • custom find (top-right drop-down)
  • checks for user namespaces (used for sandboxing)
