@datenkanal https://digitalcourage.de/digitale-selbstverteidigung/weniger-spuren-im-netz-hinterlassen-anti-tracking-tools ist leider nicht ganz vollständig. Wichtig finden wir uBlock Origin, uMatrix oder NoScript, Decentraleyes, Cookie AutoDelete, Smart Referer, HTTPS Everywhere und evt. PrivacyBadger. Sehr nützlich: Firefox Multi-Account Containers. /c
@david_ross @datenkanal @Digitalcourage mine: HTTPS by default; HTTPS Everywhere; Lazarus Form Recovery (this is for an older Firefox); Privacy Badger; uBlock Origin. I always hoped a separate Miner Block was not necessary? At one time I also had uMatrix, dunno why it's missing, now. NoScript turned out to be too intrusive. Perhaps I should install uMatrix again. It seemed like a better UI experience than NoScript.
@kensanata relevant. 63 is current Nightly which I'm on and it rolls to release channel October 23.. https://www.bleepingcomputer.com/news/software/firefox-63-to-get-improved-tracking-protection-that-blocks-in-browser-miners/
@david_ross Interesting. I sort of assumed it was enabled but I guess it wasn't. Changed privacy.trackingprotection.enabled and privacy.trackingprotection.ui.enabled to true. Funny that I remember this stuff from Firefox Focus on the phone! Do you have the recommended or the strict set enabled?
@david_ross Well, I read the article you linked to, and some other articles it linked to, and got the impression that the UI in settings was disabled by default so I went straight to about:config and enabled both the UI and the setting. My comment was more of an expression of surprise that these two were not enabled by default; and an expression of happiness that Firefox seems to get closer to Firefox Focus (where the tracking protection is super easy to find in the ui).
