Offline Website Data

Post by joe57 » Fri Jan 22, 2021 12:55 am


Please be lenient with me, I'm not a security nerd.
Under preferences/advanced/network, older versions of Firefox had an option "Ask if websites want to store data for offline use", but this is gone now. Is NoScript able to prevent websites from storing offline data? If not, is there some equivalent solution?

Btw, what is ABE? I don't know what "Application Boundaries Enforcer" actually means. Perhaps this is what I am looking for.

Many thanks for help!

Iceweasel died in 2016, almost five years ago! And by now it has many publicly-known vulnerabilities. Please update yourself to a current browser for your own safety.

The offline website data feature is disabled by default in modern browsers and is being removed, so your question is pretty much moot for anything we currently support.
*Always* check the changelogs BEFORE updating that important software!
