Excellent Rated 5 out of 5 stars

i recently switched back to Firefox from Chromium because of this vulnerability. With Chromium, there's no fix. Google designed Chrome and all Chromium-based Browsers to reveal real IP Address. Firefox is the only fix. Thank You Mozilla.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (1.0.7). 

Thanks!

Yeah, I'm surprised Google is so far behind Mozilla in terms of securing WebRTC.

Simple effective way to protect privacy from WebRTC.
Well done

Good addon for enabling/disabling WebRTC Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Does what it says and - especially - you can toggle the state of WebRTC on the fly.

The only thing I'd like to see is that the source code would be hosted in a repository (at GitHub or somewhere else), so you have a nicer way to get to the source than by using AMO here.
What's nice is that it is already open-source. (MPL)

Edit: Okay, nice. Next time just already link to the repo in the description. :)

media.peerconnection.ice.default_address_only Rated 5 out of 5 stars

" RoxKilly commented 4 days ago

here is a new Firefox preference that can be toggled to ensure that private IPs don't leak out of a WebRTC connection. Only the IP that would usually be visible to a web server will be used.

This solution is much simpler than the reference I provided earlier. In about:config, you can set media.peerconnection.ice.default_address_only=true. No need to completely disable WebRTC.

Extension served it's purpose, thanks.

Nice, I appreciate the heads up.

Disable WebRTC Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Would you buy a luxury car capable of speeds in excess of 200 mph if it had no adequate braking system?

Of course you wouldn't! Yet many people pay annual fees to VPN'S for varying privacy, or security reasons, without considering the fact that WebRTC can sometimes bypass that anonymity when enabled!

I am not saying that all VPN'S don't provide the ability to disable WebRTC. However it is fair to say that the majority don't...

This simple, basic extension provides the ability on Firefox, to enable or disable WebRTC, without having to toggle the "about.config" options.

DisableWebRTC works well for me. I have no hesitation in giving it a 5 star review. I have Windows 8.1.

The ability with one click to enable, or disable WebRTC (for any pages where it might be needed) is very useful.

As I only use Firefox as my primary browser, I can't comment on how well this extension works with other browsers!

Thanks, glad you are enjoying the addon!

Works great in Waterfox for PC. Also Installed it in Firefox for Android, but don't know how to make the icon visible to toggle it on and off? Thanks.

win 10 Rated 5 out of 5 stars

excellent addon..has worked perfectly and simply on win 8..but isnt working in win 10..is there any adjustment needed on win 10?

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (1.0.6). 

Thanks for the heads up, I'll look into this.

Update: I just installed Windows 10, and the addon seems to be working properly. Please feel free to follow up with me via email (ChrisAntaki@gmail.com) or GitHub (https://github.com/ChrisAntaki/disable-webrtc-firefox).

Great job Chris! Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Thank you for your all work! For me it really is about obfuscation so the more layers we can add the better. This along with other apps work well to thwart some of our vulnerabilities online.

Remember the phrase, "as long as you aren't doing anything wrong you will have nothing to worry about." We hear that idea tossed around a lot by government officials and many people seem to buy into that philosophy.

Just remember that this was also the mantra of the Nazi party as Hitler declared martial law in Germany in 1933. We all really should be cautious with our right to privacy as the age of information has taken much of that away.

This is really inspiring, thanks!

Thank for your reply Rated 5 out of 5 stars

I test with Hide ALl IP, it's not only a VPN service, because I also use other VPN services, but they can't block WebRTC at all, still leak IP and need your plug-in, but Hide ALL IP works. I think it should have some no document settings or registry in Chrome/Seamony or Firefox, may be you can find and do it.
Thank for your great job again!

Menu bar icon Rated 3 out of 5 stars

Great job,it works very well "but" can one reduce the size of the icon on the menu bar.
The icon overwhelms the other icons which "forces" the menu bar to "expand" twice its size.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (1.0.4.1-signed). 

Thanks for the heads up, Roy! This newest version fixes the icon sizing.

Just one more thing. Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Good catch! Fixing that now

"The one-star review was crap." Hilarious. This is from a person who calls the WebRTC functionality a "vulnerability".

My "one-star review" accurately pointed out that this extension did not notice changes to the applicable setting that were made outside the extension itself. The developer replied positively to my review, said "Good call", and improved the extension as a result. Then, a real expert chimed in.

Thanks for updating the extension. Well done.

@Nope: Although Chrome does not natively allow you to block WebRTC (at the time of this writing, anyway), there are Chrome extensions that can block WebRTC in that browser. Please find them, and go back to using Chrome.

Just Installed Rated 4 out of 5 stars

The one-star review was crap. I just discovered this vulnerability yesterday. From what I've learned thus far, there is no way to protect yourself if you are using Chrome, so today I've fired Firefox up for the 1st time in over 2 years, and installed this plugin. It's the only solution I've found for Chrome Users. An extension for Chrome that used to work no longer works (leaving nothing to prevent WebRTC from handing over your IP Address on demand), so the only solution for Chrome users is to use Firefox with this plugin. When you have the ONLY effective solution on the entire planet, you deserve more than one star. I figure 4 stars to start and I'll test it out for a week or so and come back for a follow-up review.

However, that is one BUTT UGLY icon, lol. Somewhere, there's a lephrechan missing it's sphincter. But function is always more important than form. Developer can worry about asthetics after the plugin is out of beta. Right?

If you had a place to leave an email address, I would give it for extended information exchange, etc... I can promote the plugin on a couple of forums if it works. Techsupport forum, bleeping computer, Kickass torrents, private internet access's forum, badcaps dot net, torrentfreak and maybe a couple of others.

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (1.0.2.1-signed). 

Thanks for the feedback. I just redesigned the icon to be prettier and more communicative. If you're down to spread the word, that would be awesome. Feel free to leave an issue on GitHub (https://github.com/ChrisAntaki/disable-webrtc-firefox) if you have any more ideas. Have a great rest of your weekend.

Thank you! Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Great addon, thank you for your hard work Chris Antaki.

For those who can't/wont use this addon follow this....

To disable

Enter "about:config" in the address bar and press enter
Press the button "I'll be careful, I promise!"
Type in "media.peerconnection.enabled" in the search bar (there should be only one entry)
Right-click the entry choose "Toggle", the column "Value" should now be "false"

To enable

Enter "about:config" in the address bar and press enter
Press the button "I'll be careful, I promise!"
Type in "media.peerconnection.enabled" in the search bar (there should be only one entry)
Right-click the entry choose "Toggle", the column "Value" should now be "true"

If you know of, or are also a Chrome user please be aware that the Addon equivilant is very easily curcumvented! Chrome design fault, not Addon maker.

Edit: Added info.

This is almost perfect.
When i first was using the extension, the gray icon, i was thinking webrtc was disabled

Thanks for the feedback. I'm going to put some thought into new icon possibilities.

Can you add a button to activate/deactivate webRTC in the FF menu to?

Glad you like it. Yes, I'm planning to add that feature this month.
