FIR - SECURITY + PRIVACY - Firefox Configuration Guide for Privacy Freaks and Performance Buffs |

There is a huge selection of Firefox add-ons for tweaking privacy and security, some of the most popular of which are Adblock Plus and it’s many derivatives, NoScript, Flashblock, Ghostery, Web of Trust, BetterPrivacy, Lightbeam, Disconnect, Self-Destructing Cookies, Cookies Manager+, Request Policy, Policeman, Bluhell Firewall, RefControl, Smart Referer, HTTPS Everywhere and many, many others. With some possible exceptions, we won’t be using any of these, yet will retain much of the most important functionality offered by most of them with just a few add-ons, along with a plethora of changes to our Firefox configuration.


LOG - TELECHARGER - YouTube-DL GUI 0.4 - New User Interface - Web Upd8: Ubuntu / Linux blog

ouTube-DL GUI is, like its name suggests, a graphical user interface for the powerful command line tool youtube-dl, available for Linux and Windows. In case you're not familiar with youtube-dl, this is a popular tool that allows downloading videos from YouTube and around 1000 other websites. YouTube-DL GUI features include: - options to select the video and audio format; - post-processing options such as: extract audio from video file, embed thumbnail in audio file, add metadata, select audio quality; - can embed subtitles into the video file (mp4 only); - configurable filename format for the downloaded audio/video file; - supports authentication; - allows using a proxy; - can specify user agent and referrer; - supports passing extra youtube-dl command line options. YouTUbe-DL GUI automatically downloads (and updates) the youtube-dl binary so you don't have to worry about having an old youtube-dl that no longer works. By default, the binary is saved under the ~/.config/youtube-dlg directory. For post-processing, the application uses FFmpeg, so you'll need this installed for some options, like merging DASH files, etc.

FIR 57>+ - userChrome.css / userContent.css - WebExtensions can not modify browsers appearance in Firefox 57+

The only way to modify UI is adding custom CSS code to userChrome.css and userContent.css files inside browsers profile folder. Keep in mind CSS code can not create entirely new items, buttons or toolbars. It only can modify already present ui items. 1. Find your profile folder ('profile names are different for everyone'). All OS: about:support > Profile Folder > Open Folder 2. User styles belong into "chrome" subolder. Create it, if there is none yet. PROFILENAME chrome 3. Copy userChrome.css, userContent.css and subfolders into chrome subfolder. How to use custom user styles? The userChrome.css and userContent.css files works like an optionsconfigurations file. All main "features" can be enabled and disabled there.

USERSTYLES - HACK - extensions.stylish.install.allowedDomains chez DuckDuckGo

Users can currently install from other sources in these ways: Visit a CSS file, click the Stylish icon, click Add File to Stylish (no metadata will be loaded, but updates will work) From the Stylish tab in the Add-ons Manager, click Install from URL, and provide the URL to a CSS file (again, no metadata, but updates work) Modify the setting extensions.stylish.install.allowedDomains in about:config and visit a site that implements the appropriate meta elements and something like this JavaScript and use its UI (supports metadata). Use Install from URL and provide a URL that implements the appropriate meta elements. This way, the site does not need to implement any JS and does not need to be in extensions.stylish.install.allowedDomains (supports metadata) So basically the missing portion to achieve what you want is some way to more easily add a site to extensions.stylish.install.allowedDomains. I would also to give some thought as to how to prevent abuse of this feature. For example, there's nothing currently stopping a site from opening infinite prompts until the user installs.

FIR - PRIVACY - How to block automatic connections that Firefox makes - gHacks Tech News

Mozilla has created a support page that lists all the connections that Firefox make without explicit permission of the user. As you can see, quite a few are listed there. While some are enabled after user activity, for instance adding live bookmarks to the browser, others are enabled by default. This guide looks at the latter kind, explains what their use is, and how you can disable them if you do not require them.

GITHUB - Un blog statique sur github avec Jekyll et Octopress

Les avantages d'un blog statique Voici ce que j'apprécie particulièrement dans un blog statique : Ultra light : Juste des fichiers .html et .js à déposer sur le serveur. La sécurité : On élimine les failles applicatives (sqli, exec(), file upload et cie...) même si la configuration du serveur n'est pas à négliger (bruteforce, SSI, webdav, etc.) Zero maintenance : Adieu MySQL, configuration PHP et surtout, plus besoin de penser aux mises à jour... La performance : Quoi de plus rapide à délivrer qu'un simple fichier statique qui va être mis en cache ? Hosting : Comme on a plus besoin de PHP+MySQL, on trouve plus facilement de l'hosting gratuit, notamment github. Le coté leet : Allo, t'es leet t'as pas de blog statique ? Allo ? Bien entendu un site statique a ses limites, mais javascript et les plugins/services third party sont là pour ça. Jekyll est généré par Jekyll et hosté sur github. C'est sûr, niveau design on peut mieux faire (normal je l'ai fait avec twitter bootstrap et le web design c'est pas ma tasse de thé), mais je vous rassure y a un max de site qui rendent bien avec Jekyll et Octopress a un bon thème par défaut. Clairement Octopress est beaucoup plus simple à utiliser que Jekyll : site créé en 2/3 lignes commandes avec un super design, avec Jekyll on part presque de zero. D'ailleurs si vous n'êtes pas très technique, je vous conseille de skipper les 3/4 de cet article que je me suis fait chier à rédiger, et voir directement comment Octopress est juste awesome et super fast à mettre en place : go TL;DR. Mais comme Octopress utilise Jekyll, mieux vaut comprendre comment Jekyll fonctionne sinon vous louperez pas mal de trucs pratiques. Je trouve la doc de Jekyll plutôt mal faite et mal organisée, d'où cet article (qui lui aussi sera mal fait et mal organisé).

QuickStart Configures Your Ubuntu System Without Terminal Work

Linux only: QuickStart, a free automation utility for Ubuntu Linux systems, makes it easy to perform partial or full system backups of any partition, synchronize folders and update them on a schedule, and take care of other tasks a beginner would normally need to spend serious time researching. The tiny app opens a simple interface listing your choices, although dialog prompts guide you through any steps requiring input. The tools for installing DVD playing codecs, backing up your Master Boot Record, and creating synchronized backups seem particularly helpful, and while I haven't tested every function, a handful of them completed without any problems. QuickStart is a free download for Ubuntu systems only; both links below carry non-terminal installation instructions for the script. : Configuration avancée du terminal FREEBOX
