Firefox Addons

My favourite Firefox addons

  • Dark Reader: Turn any website into a dark theme. Multiple filters and customizations, but even with the default settings works incredibly well.
  • DuckDuckGo: Privacy guard extension, blocks trackers, etc. in a less aggressive way than an AdBlocker
  • Tracking Token Stripper: Removes Google Analytics (UTM) tracking tokens from URL query strings
  • WhiteList Javascript: Toggle javascript on/off for certain sites. I recommend changing configuration to be blacklist-based instead of default's whitelist-based
  • uBlock Origin: Best Ad-Blocker extension. Also available for Firefox Mobile
  • uMatrix: Proxy blocker to disable calls by subdomain and/or protocol

Recommendations

Personal individual tweaks

  • Disable media autoplay: type about:config and then check media.autoplay.enabled and media.block-autoplay-until-in-foreground settings.
  • Short-term 3rd party cookies: Preferences -> Privacy & Security -> History -> custom settings -> and modify third-party cookies section
  • Tracking Protection: Preferences -> Privacy & Security -> Tracking Protection -> change to Always
