Content update: Firefox Configuration Guide for Privacy Freaks and Performance Buffs

I updated the Firefox Configuration Guide for Privacy Freaks and Performance Buffs page. Changes as follows:

  • removed CanvasBlocker
  • removed Cookie AutoDelete (rather obsolete with dFPI and v96 of arkenfox user.js, plus due to delayed cleaning it doesn't offer the level of protection we want)
  • removed section on HSTS tracking (largely if not entirely obsolete)
  • added 'Persistent web storage' section

Content update: Firefox Tweaks and Fixes and Styles and Things

The Firefox Tweaks and Fixes and Styles and Things page was updated with new information in the Redirecting this to that section. Rather than listing the few redirects that were there i made available my personal redirector.json file which includes many more.

For the unaware, redirects are when one URL is pointed to another. This is very handy for those that value their privacy and want to avoid sites like YouTube, Wikipedia, Instagram, etc., but still want to be able to view their content. Redirects can automatically forward the browser to an alternative and privacy respecting front-end whenever you click on a YouTube link for example.
