Security and Privacy
About this Collection
The collection of add ons I use to increase security and privacy in firefox.
4 Add-ons in this Collection
Blocks annoying video ads on YouTube, Facebook ads, banners and much more.
Adblock Plus blocks all annoying ads, and supports websites by not blocking unobtrusive ads by default (configurable).
Collector's Note This is the first add-on I install.
Control a new, trickier kind of cookie, better known as an LSO or Flash cookie. The BetterPrivacy safeguard offers various ways to handle Flash-cookies created by webpages with the help of your Flash plug-in...
Collector's Note This is used to manage flash cookies. Options I have checked in preferences: Auto-delete Flash cookies on application exit, On cookie deletion also delete empty cookie folders, Disable DOMStorage, Disable Pint Tracking. So far I haven't run into any problem sites. If so you can add exceptions in BetterPrivacy.
Set cookie permissions for the site you are viewing.
Collector's Note If it says this add-on is incompatible with your version see the developer's site at http://gorgias.de/mfe/ for an updated one (hopefully he'll get the updated pushed here) The way I use this is set firefox to keep cookies untile "I close firefox." This can be set in preferences > privacy. With that set (and clear all your current unwanted cookies) I then use permit cookies to allow sites that I want to keep cookies permanently. This is needed on bank sites that need to "authenticate" your browser.
Force-TLS helps you manage sites that must be loaded over HTTPS only. Strict-Transport-Security is built into Firefox, but without a UI; this lets you import/export and manage these settings.
Collector's Note You need a minimum of version 2.0 (visit developer's site if not listed here) There are some websites where you'd like the ability to allways have an SSL connection. This add-on will do just that. With version 2.0+ you can specify sites you want to force SSL on. Once added any address to that domain will be sent through SSL. Suggested sites to add would include your bank, paypal, amazon.com, social networking sites like facebook, web email sites, etc. NOTE: forcing SSL like this may not work on some websites if they're not configured to accept it.
