New guide: De-borking MP3s on Linux

Article update: The Firefox Privacy Guide For Dummies!

The Firefox Privacy Guide For Dummies! page was updated a bit. I dumped the ‘First Party Isolation’ add-on and added the ‘Font Fingerprint Defender’ add-on. Other than that, it was just some polishing that took place.

I removed the ‘First Party Isolation’ add-on because a) i never explained what it’s for, primarily because i want to keep the guide short and simple, and b) because i already explained how to create new Firefox profiles which kind of negates the need for the add-on given the audience the guide is intended for.

Now if you’ll excuse me i have some things i need to address.
