Re: Mozilla Firefox to force its own DNS?

It is always fine with me. What I say publicly is always fair game.
You can pickup on that existing conversation, that would help me stay informed but that's entirely up to you.
I have no reason to doubt his intentions are sincere and his efforts are genuine.

Re: Mozilla Firefox to force its own DNS?

My takeaway is that he prefers people use the other projects that now he is also relying on as anything he does to "update" his end will just be a bandaid, as in why not just use what the underlying system directly instead. That's all. He seems to prefer the more actively maintained projects as a so...

Re: Not sending screen resolution details with JS on

Its neither here nor there, but screen resolution CAN be used for fingerprinting.

Re: Mozilla Firefox to force its own DNS?

DNSCrypt.eu = A free DNSSEC enabled, non-logged and uncensored DNSCrypt service by Simon Clausen = Individual Hosting = RamNode = just a host, you host your site on GoDaddy that doesn't make you GoDaddy = "DNSCrypt.eu is operated by me, Simon Clausen." You could do some research but again if you are...

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 in...

If there is sufficient community involvement and code review around it, then yes.

Re: Guide:How to run 2 versions of Fx on the same system

Nice, been doing this for a long time already as I use 56 as my daily driver and even then I simultaneously need to run two different profiles at times. On top of that I have ESR and Quantum on the system for Java and testing respectively and I keep them out of each other's hair and without crossove...

Re: How is it possible for add-ons to be proprietary

So in conclusion the only way to be sure that by using an add-on you're running only free open software is to check: its license that all files in its XPI are source files and not binary files every last line of its source code, because in one line it can fetch proprietary unknown code and execute ...

Re: inline scripts aren't block: why & workaround?

If a page is not granted `ALLOWED` then scripts do not run, that could be first-party or third-party the distinction is SCRIPT so are you sure you don't have the site itself or as part of a domain wildcard allowed scripting permission? Do you have an actual link where this happens so we can test it?...

Re: How is it possible for add-ons to be proprietary

That makes it really tricky to know if by using an add-on you're running closed source code, doesn't it? You can't even tell by looking at the add-on's license! How can a layman tell if an add-on makes use of closed source code? Is it enough to just look at the file extensions inside the XPI? If th...

Re: Evercookies

Agreed, when I read it I thought the same thing, but wasn't sure if maybe I misunderstood, thank you for handling it.
