CSP - ABOUT:CONFIG - How to Disable the “Firefox has blocked content that isn’t secure” Message - SharePoint MMMan

I do a lot of work with Firefox, as its developer tools outshine all the other browsers, hands down. But recently I’ve been getting a lot of sites appearing without CSS. As it turns out, there’s actually “mixed content” on the page, and the default security setting is to block that content. Normally I agree with security settings in general, but I know what I’m doing, and this is just a massive annoyance. There are ways around this though. 1) You can add the toggle mixed content add-on from here 2) However, my preferred method is to disable the feature in the browser by doing the following. Enter about:config into the Firefox address bar (confirm the info message in case it shows up) & search for the preference named security.mixed_content.block_active_content. Double-click it and change its value to false. After this, you’ll be browsing without that annoying security blockage, and everything will feel back to normal.

WIN HOST - Dev version of popular blocker extension µBlock for Firefox released - gHacks Tech News

Maybe I'm overlooking something but I don't understand why people are using ad-blockers that run in their browsers ... In most operating systems there already exists an effective and resource-efficient way to filter network traffic by diverting specific IPs or URLs to the localhost. Using the hosts file, which exists in the BSDs, in Linux, in Windows etc., to filter out undesirable or dangerous stuff is in my opinion a much more universal and elegant method than browser based ad-blockers. I've been using this method since ages, first in Windows and now since almost 15 years in Linux, and I have never experienced any slow-downs or hang-ups. The hosts file I'm using is the 'classic' from ... ... which currently contains over 15000 entries, is well maintained and updated each 4-6 weeks. I've written a short script which on boot-up looks if a new hosts file is available, and if it is, downloads and copies the file into the /etc directory. Cool! :-)

FIR XPI - DEV - Force CORS Firefox Extension

a very simple extension for Firefox that adds the Cross Origin Resource Sharing (CORS) Access-Control- HTTP headers to all responses before they're processed by the browser. This essentially disables the browser's same origin policy and allows cross domain calls even if the web server does not support CORS. The default setting adds the following headers to every response:

CSS - USERSTYLES - Code for various Firefox elements? -

You can inspect the Firefox user interface directly with DOM Inspector. (Which is not the same Inspector as in the Web Developer menu.) [] the icon in the upper-left corner of DOMi, the one with a pointer on it, then click anywhere in the browser to select an element; that element will be highlighted in the left column. Right-click the highlighted entry to display a context menu: "Copy Selector" suggests selectors for the element, "Set Pseudo-classes..." lets you switch on :hover. Notice that the browser itself is a document with its own URI, chrome://browser/content/browser.xul, Most of the browser chrome is XUL, but some, such as the Stylish editor, is HTML embedded in XUL.


Sécurité des navigateurs (Panopticlick ou comment une technique simple peut bousiller tout votre anonymat) - Wiki de l'internet libre - Korben

Des chercheurs en sécurité sont en train de travailler sur une technique pour dé-anonymiser les internautes. Il partent du principe que chaque personne possède un navigateur différent, des plugins différents, avec des versions différentes, des polices différentes, un fuseau horaire différent…etc. Et toutes ces petites différences, misent bout à bout, permettent au final de créer une empreinte unique du navigateur (donc de la machine utilisée pour aller sur le net). Ça, c’est ce que l’EFF a appelé Panopticlick et que vous pouvez tester en allant ici. Mais une nouvelle technique exploite les réseaux sociaux. En effet, en exploitant l’historique de votre navigateur, un attaquant (ou un espion ou une société privée) peut savoir sur quels sites vous avez été. il devient possible de clairement vous identifier en tant que personne lors de votre surf quotidien et ce même si vous passez par un VPN…

Screenshot Tour: A Closer Look at Fennec, the Mobile Firefox Browser

Mozilla's Firefox-like browser for mobile phones, code-named Fennec, has been released as a free alpha preview for Windows, Mac, and Linux systems (and Nokia N810 Internet Tablets). As you would expect with an alpha preview, it's a bit buggy, and not all the features are in place, but it's intriguing to see how Mozilla plans to smoosh Firefox 3's features onto the tiniest screens. If you want to know what Firefox on your phone might look like, read on for detailed screenshots and a rundown of Fennec's features.
