I asked the developer of the 'Maximize All Windows' add-on if he'd be willing to create a minimalist version without the extra features, the goal being to only maximize the Firefox window when it starts and nothing more, and, less than 2 hours later, he released Maximize All Windows (Minimalist Version)! Thank you 'ericchase'! I updated the link in Firefox Tweaks and Fixes and Styles and Things.
I updated my user-overrides.js for Firefox. Changes include…
* added 'network.trr.mode'
* added 'network.trr.uri'
* added 'network.connectivity-service.*' prefs to testing section
* added 'mathml.disabled'
* added 'browser.download.folderList'
* added 'app.update.silent'
* added 'app.update.service.enabled'
* added 'network.predictor.enabled'
* removed 'network.dnsCacheExpiration'
* removed 'network.dnsCacheExpirationGracePeriod'
* removed 'intl.locale.requested'
* shortened the syntax error check regular expression
There's some cleanup done to the 'ghacks' user.js, so be sure to update it using their updater script followed by running their prefsCleaner script. Do this with Firefox closed. Need help? See Obtaining and maintaining the user preferences files. Leave a comment if that isn't enough.
Some small changes were made to Firefox Tweaks and Fixes and Styles and Things. One of the changes was to add information about how to make fonts appear more uniform across domains.
I updated The Firefox Privacy Guide For Dummies!. Among the changes…
- added HTTPZ
- added Site Bleacher and associated information
- removed temporary profile info
- lots of minor edits
The major addition is the Site Bleacher add-on which is the only (for the moment at least) Firefox extension that can clean IndexedDB storage on a per-site basis. No other cleaner extensions do this because of the limitations of the WebExt API, however the developer of Site Bleacher has apparently discovered a novel way of getting around this. I also tried to shorten the guide as much as i could.
Oh, i'll throw this in here as well; i published a privacy-centric user.js for Thunderbird recently. It's not super comprehensive, nor will i pay nearly as much attention to it as my Firefox stuff, but it covers most/all of the major privacy issues with Thunderbird.
