Your browser config

Post by yes_noscript » Fri Dec 08, 2017 10:48 pm

How secure you your browser?

I currently use Pale Moon stable x64 with uBlock Origin, uMatrix, NoScript (just for XSS & ABE but maybe not in future) and other privacy addons.

I use SeaMonkey '2.49.2pre' (based on Firefox 52.5). My security addons:
- NoScript
- NoRedirect (configured to block redirects by default)
- uBlock Origin
- µMatrix

Does NoRedirect protect you with own protection, beside uBlock & uMatrix?
Or it is just a nice to have rediction blocker

I see NoRedirect as a security tool. For example, it makes it much easier to spot a malicious shortened URL.

I create a rule with Regex

Code: Select all

.*
and check only "Source". Exceptions go above this rule.

Seems to work fine for me in Pale Moon 27.6.2, new profile.

Make sure you're not testing NoRedirect on redirect pages that are cached from before installing NoRedirect.
