Firefox Add-ons

My favourite Firefox add-ons/extensions.


AdBlock Tips
  • Before creating a filer, check if you can fine-tune the rule, e.g. adding a wildcard * might make it more generic, or blocking a whole domain instead of a subdomain
  • domain##div>a:has-text(/promoted post/): at domain, remove any <div> containing a link with text "promoted post".
Personal individual tweaks
  • Allow CORS with local file:// urls: about:configprivacy.file_unique_originfalse
  • Site Isolation on Firefox: about:configfission.autostarttrue (can check info at about:processes)
  • Disable media autoplay: about:configmedia.autoplay.default0 and media.block-autoplay-until-in-foregroundtrue
  • Force dark mode under Linux: about:configui.systemUsesDarkTheme1
  • Enabling DNS-over-HTTPS
  • Bigger, always visible scrollbar: layout.testing.overlay-scrollbars.always-visibletrue and widget.non-native-theme.scrollbar.size.override18
