Security and Privacy

  • Cookie AutoDelete - automatically delete cookies when you close tab. Has whitelist and so on
  • HTTPS Everywhere - force encrypts your communication with many major websites
  • Privacy Badger - automatically blocks tracking pixels and buttons
  • Privacy Redirect - Redirects Twitter, YouTube, Instagram, & Google Maps requests to privacy friendly alternatives - Nitter, Invidious, Bibliogram, & OpenStreetMap.
  • PrivacySpy - simplified privacy policies and privacy policy ratings for websites
  • Terms of Service; Didn't Read - displays a popup when you open website with hostile Terms of Service
  • Trace - spoofs a lot of fingerprinting-related browser parameters, makes fingerprinting and tracking very difficult and expensive.

Please do not rely on fingerprint-resistance addons and tweaks for anonymity if it's critical for you. It's better to just use Tor Browser without Tor if you care about your digital fingerprint. It's even better to use Whonix to completely hide your fingerprint.

Firefox containers

Consider manually creating a container for VK as there is currently no working VK container extension.
