    Firejail .....

    This looks very interesting and has a Arch package in the AUR.I am typing this from a firejail firefox. https://l3net.wordpr...jects/firejail/ https://l3net.wordpr...ozilla-firefox/ https://l3net.wordpr...bilities-guide/ There are quite a few pages of stuff to read and some of the comments are worth a read aswell.Of interest is the fact that you can run VLC-without internet access (or similar program) and also isolate programs like the TorBrowser and Dropbox. I ran a quick comparison opening up FF with a page with video running and it does not seem to use
  2. Just found this interesting and vast guide to reducing outgoing tracking data from Firefox. It's in the form of a user.js file which you could deploy altogether, or select particular items and edit them with about:config. Firefox does appear to send various data out and most of us probably don't need the functionality this data supports. Who ever used "Pocket" for instance? https://gist.github.com/MrYar/751e0e5f3f1430db7ec5a8c8aa237b72

    Firefox 54 Goes Multi-thread

    The search for the Goldilocks browser and why Firefox might be “just right” for you Multi-process Firefox is fast like other browsers, but won’t suck up memory and slow down your computer as Chrome will sometimes do.
  4. --- Well, it's come to this... I've been using Chromium in Slackware64-14.1 for quite a few years, but last October/November a new version came out that just refuses to run on my system. It crashes about 15 seconds after startup with "segmentation fault" error. I've spent quite a bit of time troubleshooting this. I run .txz SlackBuilds from Alien Bob's (+Eric Hameleers) repos. The last version that can run on my system is chromium-52.0.2743.82-x86_64-1alien. I thought maybe that I would wait a few more versions since this problem started to try it again. Well, today I installed

    libeatmydata

    https://aur.archlinux.org/packages/libeatmydata/ I have been concerned about the time Fire Fox takes to load and run in my Arch 64. Slow is not the word for it. I chanced upon this neat program "eatmydata". now I love funkily named programs so I had to give it a whirl. Wow what a difference. FF now loads as quickly as Chromium and the web pages load nearly as fast too. I do not save any history or form information in FF and use automatic saving of bookmarks via Xmarks so I do not think I am in any danger of loosing anything important by using eatmydata. You should be aware tha

    Why, hello there, Foxy...

    Online face interface minus the vendor lock-in More at the Mozilla site https://www.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/hello/ I seem to remember posting about this before but can not find the thread. Oh well it looks to be worth mentioning again.
  7. I have been having terrible performance issues with Flash plugin for a very long time. It crashed almost every time I try to play something. This was happening in Firefox, Chrome, Chromium, Konqueror, pretty much every browser. I tried uninstalling, reinstalling, downgrade to older version, compile my own from source, and just about anything else that was recommended by the experts at Google search results. I now have it "fixed". It only crashes about 50% of the time, unless I am playing an embedded video where it crashes over 75% of the time. How did I accomplish this, you ask?
  8. So I'm pretty new to the whole Linux game. A recent hardware failure prompted me to swtich to Linux from Windows 7 and thus far I have no intention of turning back. So let me begin by saying "hello!" I'm new to the forum and was recommended to visit by a forum friend. I feel having a great place for me to post my Linux question and learn would be here. I'm really loving the Linux experience. So, I know you probably would prefer me to make several threads for all of my issues, but I honestly feel it'd be much more efficient to do it in one thread, tackling each issue once one is compl

    Some COOL Extensions for FF and TB

    I recently added some extensions in FF and TB that are pretty cool. I thought I'd post about them here in case anyone was interested... Old Default Image Style 1.0 - FF - This extension reverts back to the older style "view image" in Firefox. The newer FF centers the image on the page with a black background. In older versions, there was no centering and the image was on a plain white background page. I'm talking here about when you RIGHT click on an image on a website and choose "View Image" from the context menu. Theme and Font Size Changer 5.3 - FF and/or TB - This extension allows
  12. Mozilla Firefox 12.0 and Thunderbird 12.0 have been pushed out and I updated to both yesterday. They are working very well so far. No problems with any of the Extensions I use with Firefox 12.0 or Thunderbird 12.0, however Lightning 1.3 was updated to Lightning 1.4 during the install when it checked for updates to extensions. All going quite well. But I was careful too. I backed up my bookmarks .json for Firefox and copied my entire Thunderbird profile just to be sure. But it all went very well!
  13. Firefox skirts Windows security feature to make silent updates happen - Computerworld I love Firefox and would love to see it be able to keep their users updated with the least amount of fuss, however, I am not sure this is a wise move at all. I am not at all sure Microsoft should allow this because of the potential for malware purveyors to do the same. Or am I missing something? Are there any other programs that can auto update without being trapped by UAC first? YES! Google Chrome has been doing it since it started. OK, must be OK if it's worked out well for Goog
