I was using the recommended extensions Henry suggested in the hardening Firefox video but after his last video, I checked out the arkenfox and i found that they only recommend uBlock Origin and Skip Redirect, And there are some optional extensions, So I have some questions:
1 - I am using Popup Blocker (strict) which is giving me full control over any popup, Should i get rid of it? If yes, What is the alternative?
2 - I am still using NoScript which is used by Tor but everyone is recommending uBlock Origin instead, So what should i do? If i uBlock Origin is the better option, I want to learn how to block scripts using it and blocking scripts by default as iam only using it as an adblocker and tracking blocker and i will be very thankful if you suggest a video that explain it.
3 - Should i still use Skip Redirect, Smart Referer and Canvasblocker?
4 - What is Request Control which is recommended by arkenfox? And how to use it?
Seems like he didn’t take security into account with enough weight. Otherwise some choices are difficult to grasp. For example Vanadium only on tier 4 and on the same tier as ungoogled chromium does not make sense to me.
were previously recommended by Arkenfox for people who chose to use a specific pair of overrides. But these are no longer recommended (I am looking into this as we speak).
Here is the commit where the Canvas Blocker recommendation was removed, and here is the commit where the Smart referer recommendation was removed. The reason Canvasblocker is no longer a recommendation is that FPP which is built in to Firefox makes canvas blocker redundant. I do not know why the SmartReferer recommendation was removed.
I have no knowledge of that ever being true (but FPP is new and I may be lacking info). Can you shed some light on (or link to) what you are referring to?
Also note that for strong and effective fingerprinting protection the Tor Browser and possibly Mullvad Browser are really the only options. At least that is the perspective of the Arkenfox developer (who is also a Tor project core contributor), of myself (who is nobody), and possibly of Privacy Guides (not sure of the official stance of privacy guides).
FPP is a weaker form of anti-fingerprinting than RFP (but causes less problems)
I’d suggest reviewing this page on Fingerprinting from the Arkenfox Wiki
