Re: µMatrix thread

uMatrix/tracker redirect problem: Using AOL Mail--migrated from Verizon Mail. As of several days ago, when I try to login to AOL webmail, login.aol.com, both Ghostery (from which I can temporarily allow) and uMatrix block redirects to guce.advertising.com. When I logged in using Safari, allowing the...

Re: Mozilla Firefox to force its own DNS?

Sorry, a little late getting back to this, but for the benefit of anyone who was concerned about whether to use, or continue to use, DNSCrypt.eu for DNS resolution. The site may have been left to languish, but the service itself is still supported: https://s14.postimg.cc/er06y6o3h/Screen_Shot_2018-0...

Re: Mozilla Firefox to force its own DNS?

Looks like I should probably contact him directly to ask about the current state of his DNSCrypt. Doesn't look like I can use the "simple" version (writing it this way because the real name kicks off the overly sensitive anti-spam filter.) Shouldn't need to reference this thread, but if I do is that...

Re: Mozilla Firefox to force its own DNS?

I've read through that twitter conversation any number of times, but I'm only more confused. To the extent that I am able, I've tried checking out the references there to simple DNSCrypt and dnscrypt-proxy v2, among other things, which, at least to my uneducated eye, doesn't look like either can be ...

Re: Mozilla Firefox to force its own DNS?

I reached out to them and straight from the horse's mouth: First, thanks for looking into this. But can you perhaps provide some context. Can you say what you were asking when you "reached out to them." And what is he referring to that is "just a bandaid?" If that refers to the current state of DNS...

Re: Mozilla Firefox to force its own DNS?

Wasn't looking for an argument, just a bit concerned. Thanks for the information, will have to look more into this. Maybe switch to something else, since not sure I want to,keep having all my DNS go through this guy.

Re: Mozilla Firefox to force its own DNS?

That service is hosted by an individual and I am not saying it is bad, but it seems that it has had no activity since 2016 and currently many of its links are 404, just be careful using services unless you can vet them thoroughly. Many VPN services outright say they won't log anything but that is i...

Re: Mozilla Firefox to force its own DNS?

This is disturbing news. FWIW, ever since ISP privacy protections for U.S. consumers were alarmingly removed last year, I have been using DNSCrypt.eu-nl (Netherlands), via dnscrypt-proxy in my Tomato flashed router for all my DNS lookups (that's the one I know about, but must be other ways to get th...

MFSA 2018-10 & Waterfox

WF just got the 56.1, two weeks to the day that Mozilla released patches for 59 and esr. But as soon as it was released, yesterday I believe, Mozilla released new patches for the Quantum and esr versions, 59.0.3 and 52.7.3. Impact: High: https://www.mozilla.org/en-US/security/advisories/mfsa2018-10/...

Re: Waterfox?

IRONY: just spent a couple of hours reinstalling all my addons from scratch in a new profile--Just near the end, discovered that the offending addon was HttpFox, the very one I was using to monitor what was happening. In a new profile or in the old one, with that disabled, the logins work just fine....

Re: Waterfox?

The login to AOL mail, for me, is a 3 stage login: 1, enter account name in a text field, 2, select associated password, which appears from a dropdown, and hit enter. Whereupon, 3, there appears a loading/progress bar, which when complete, opens to all mail in my inbox. What happens with Waterfox, u...

Re: Waterfox?

Changing User Agent isn't the fix. At some point I will get around to testing in a new profile, bringing over just uMatrix (to block the obnoxious AOL crap on logout) and bookmarks (for AOL). For the time being, will just live with reloading the page twice for those 2 logins--hoping it's only those ...

Re: Waterfox?

Will try the suggestion to spoof my User Agent, but even if you don't have an AOL account, perhaps the output from HttpFox, stalled here before any page reloads, might make some sense. I basically use HttpFox at a very unsophisticated level, just to see what the particular outgoing connections look ...

Re: Waterfox?

I'm finding that several logins don't work until two or three page reloads-- Do you have e10s disabled in Waterfox? Do you have rules in µMatrix that would block cookies? e10s are enabled: Multiprocess Windows 1/1 (Enabled by user) uMatrix not blocking cookies for the login (AOL Mail) Would the spe...
