Some nice Firefox add-ons to work with

Post by JoATMoN » Tue Aug 12, 2008 11:04 pm

Hey guys,

I would like to offer a nice suggestion as a add on for firefox called Noscript which can be grabbed from here: https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/722

It might be a little discouraging at first, since you have to allow scripts to run on sites that you normally visit (blocks everything be default). For instance...You'll notice that you can't make comments on this site until you allow some of the google scripts to run. (There is a option button in the lower right hand corner that pops up to easily allow or deny scripts on the page)

BUT, the good thing is that you will gain knowledge in what scripts are running on what page, and become more informed as to what is a legit script, what is a tracking script, and what scripts cause damage to your system. It will also help out with reporting accurate privacy results for pages!!

I would suggest the Flash block script too...but if you are updated with Flash, then you really have nothing to worry about...for now.

Hope this helps people out.

I use this addd-on since I have Firefox...
furthermore you can export and later import your settings, this is very usefull if you visit a lot of sites and often do an new install of Firefox or Windows.

Here's another nice add on

Have you ever wondered if the site that you are on, saying that your connection is secure, is actually secure? Quote from the site:

Code: Select all

all RSA & DSA keypairs generated with OpenSSL on affected systems (any Debian-based system between roughly Sep-17-2006 and May-13-2008) are trivial to guess. The fix is not so simple. After updating OpenSSL on an affected system, you need to figure out if any of your crypto keys are affected. Keys are affected if they have been generated on a system with the crippled OpenSSL stack (or, in the case of DSA keys, simply used to log in from an affected system to any other system). You need to regenerate all such keys and replace your SSL certificates as well.

Install it from here: http://codefromthe70s.org/sslblacklist.asp

Make add-ons work

Post by JTB » Tue Aug 19, 2008 3:18 pm

To make add-ons work with Fx 3.0 or Fx 3.1 you can:
about:config in URL bar.
Rightclick -> New -> Boolean
Name it: extensions.checkCompatibility
Set it to False.
