Some slight changes were made to the Firefox Configuration Guide for Privacy Freaks and Performance Buffs. Nothing important, i just removed my Mozilla rant and gave it a dedicated page. Also i added the NoCoin adblock list to uBlock Origin which is a cryptomining blocking filter which you can add to uBlock simply by clicking the link in the description for that repository.
Speaking of cyrptomining, Firefox 67, released today, includes two new options in its 'Privacy & Security' settings; one to block fingerprinting and one to block cryptominers. To my knowledge both of these rely on 3rd party filter lists which are likely pretty rudimentary and therefore i don't recommend enabling these options at this time since the filters used by uBlock are probably much more comprehensive. I need to dig into this deeper to verify how these options work however. It would be great to not have to use Canvas Blocker if the native anti-fingerprinting stuff in Firefox could eventually address all of the important stuff in Canvas Blocker. If anyone has any feedback in this area, please leave a comment.
Update: I think i've confirmed that both of the new fingerprinting and cryptomining prefs in FF v67 rely on lists. If we look at
browser.safebrowsing.provider.mozilla.lists in about:config, here's the value of that preference:
In there we see
I don't know what lists Firefox is using, but given that Mozilla tries to not break a lot of websites with these privacy options, they are probably rudimentary as i said earlier and so, again, i do not recommend enabling those two options if you're using uBlock. The same goes for all of the Content Blocking options with the exception of cookies and how that should be set depends on how uMatrix is set up and whether you're using the Site Bleacher add-on.
