Many advertizers now user browser fingerprinting to identify you, in addition to cookies. They may also use other tracking techniques like flash cookies. Ghostery, Adblock (with the anti-social list), and also NoScript will prevent you from loading files from these advertizers/trackers, which makes it very hard for them to track you using other means.

I am having the same issue. The interesting thing is that I can log into office 365 with my credentials in firefox and it prints just fine. When the customer that works on the computer logs in, she gets what you describe above. When she moves to another computer and logs in, she gets the same behavior, yet again, when I log in it works fine. This leads ...

Whenever you load a page with a Facebook like button, Facebook knows you are there, even without setting a cookie. Ghostery stops those buttons being loaded, thereby preventing Google, Facebook, Doubleclick from tracking you.

Chrome Canary also has network throttling in device mode: The nice thing about it is that it has presets for common situations, such as 3G. The device mode can be activated by clicking the phone icon in dev tools, circled in the screenshot.

As far as I know, nothing has changed much in the latest versions of Firefox except the user interface : One sets up the sync in menu Tools → Options → Sync, then uses Tools → Sync Now. If you do not see the menu, right-click an empty space in the above panels and click on "Menu Bar". @Peltier: If the problem is with the new Firefox bar missing the "Sync ...

I had this working previously, but in FF 30.0 it was disabled for some reason. The new style button is different from the "3D" button in other answers - now it's a cube icon. It didn't appear until I manually enabled the option in the Developer Tools.

The simplest solution is to use a batch file. The following was tested and confirmed to work with Firefox 30.0. Associate .HTML Files With a Specific Firefox Profile Create a batch file with something like the following -- for instance, for a web development profile called "Dev": "C:\My Programs\FF30\firefox.exe" -P Dev -no-remote You should omit any ...

Very simple, either go to your firefox profile folder and create a file called user.js and place the following code in your user.js file. user_pref("general.appversion.override", "5.0 (X11)"); user_pref("general.buildID.override", "20140421162246"); user_pref("general.oscpu.override", "Linux i686"); user_pref("general.platform.override", "Linux i686"); ...

The free Chrome extension RubberGlove blocks plugin and mime-type enumeration by cloaking the array entries in roughly the same way Firefox and Internet Explorer can/do natively. You still need to set chrome to "Click to play" plugins and disable 3rd-party cookies in Chrome's privacy settings yourself. Also, as was mentioned in the study, you'll still ...

You can try dns-overrider Chrome extension. DNS Overrider allows you to replace a current hostname with an alias. Hostnames will be changed in tags like , , . Only hostnames with a specified alias will be replaced. Using DNS Overrider you can replace hostname on the fly without access to system settings such as hosts file. DNS Overrider enables you ...

I’ve just been FED UP with FF because of all of the memory leaks, etc. I've been running v16 forever because whenever I’ve tried to upgrade to newer versions, they’d all pretty much just crash after 30 minutes of heavy use, and not a single version of FF that I’ve ever used has ever fixed the memory leak problems. Not a single one. I actually installed a ...

I had similar problem. I deleted all history for one domain but still firefox suggested that domain. What turned out was that I had one bookmark with that domain under Menu -> History -> View All History -> All Bookmarks -> Unsorted Bookmarks (don't know how it get there). I've deleted it and that fixed my problem.

I had the same issue and I discovered a hacky way which you can read about here: http://forum.palemoon.org/viewtopic.php?t=3260 The tl;dr version is, use mozilla.cfg to lock the variable places.history.expiration.transient_current_max_pages to 2147483647 (the largest value accepted). The issue is that Firefox will change that setting automatically unless ...

While the currently accepted answer is still accurate, it has become a lot more cumbersome with the ever increasing number of newer versions of Firefox. Granted, Firefox handles compatibility better than it used to, and the need to force enable deprecated add-ons is less common. However, in case someone still needs to do this and finds this question, I'd ...

It depends largely on the add-on. Fully reviewed add-ons from the official Mozilla Add-on Site have been tested for security leaks like this. While it is possible one has been missed, it is unlikely, especially for the most popular add-ons. Preliminarily reviewed add-ons are more dangerous. The very basics have been checked by a computer, but it's possible ...

When you visit a website over HTTP, your connection is vulnerable to eavesdropping and man-in-the-middle(MiTM) attacks. Sites that don't pass sensitive information back and forth (Personable Identifiable Information, Social Security Numbers, Credit card, etc). When you visit a page that is fully served over HTTPS (like PayPal and financial institutions), ...

A typical web page will be loaded in lots of different streams. Some of the streams, such as images, may be loaded using HTTPS but some maybe loaded by HTTP. The text is just saying that those loaded with HTTP will be blocked. If you look at the source for the page you'll probably see some of the content is referenced as HTTP.


14

This is called a "mixed content" page. If the HTTPS page includes content retrieved through regular, cleartext HTTP, then the connection is only partially encrypted: the unencrypted content is accessible to sniffers and can be modified by man-in-the-middle attackers, and therefore the connection is not safeguarded anymore. ...

As always with performing a repair like this, I recommend that you first make at least one backup copy of your places.sqlite file located in your profile directory. Having a backup allows you to try various different things to repair such problems while knowing that if the attempted repair makes things worse, you can always make another copy of the backup on ...

You could monitor the dedicated gpu's activity with a tool like EVGA Precision X to see if it's being utilized over idle. (Great tool to have even if your not just monitoring) The other thing (and this depends on your configuration) is that an integrated vs dedicated cards usage primarily depends on what is on the monitor it's outputting to. eg Firefox on ...

There could be a workaround with syncing it over the net until better solution is provided. In Linux the file is stored at: ./jetpack/customizable-shortcuts@timtaubert.de/simple-storage/store.json under your profile folder: ~/.mozilla/firefox/somename.default You can sync it every time you run and exit from Firefox. Here is my example script which ...

After some digging into this myself, I've discovered it is a MIME type issue. Firefox (or Chrome) on Linux won't play SWF files if it thinks the type is application/vnd.adobe.flash.movie. Per http://askubuntu.com/questions/478169/why-cant-firefox-run-local-swf-files: Edit /usr/share/mime/packages/freedesktop.org.xml as root and replace the following: ...

Tom's Hardware has a fairly thorough analysis of this. I'll reproduce a graph from the site below: In general, it does depend on the browser but Firefox usually comes on top for a huge number of tabs. Since Chrome uses a separate process for each tab, much of the code and information is duplicated between each process, leading to higher memory usage in ...

I do not know of another such add-on, but it seems to me that this add-on stores its data on Windows in the file: C:\Users\<user-name>\AppData\Roaming\Mozilla\Firefox\Profiles\<profile-name>\jetpack\customizable-shortcuts@timtaubert.de\simple-storage\store.json So you might try copying this file until the TODO list of the extension gets ...

Plain HTTP cookies are specific to a browser. But there are other technologies that can achieve similar functionality as cookies. Techniques called "supercookie" or "zombie cookie" can be used to restore cookies after user deleted them. This often uses Flash or other plugin storage. Now if this storage can be shared across browsers, the mechanism will ...


3

Cookies are per-browser, but plugins (such as Flash) have their own storage and can be used to share information between browsers. Nowadays I believe Chrome has its own sandboxed Flash, so it's possible that this also has its own storage. That being said, browsers in theory can generally read each others cookies, as cookies are nothing more than files on ...

Absolutely not, cookies are an application level not OS-level feature. There is also no facility for a webpage to access cookies other than for their explicit domain in the current browser, in the same way there is no functionality for a webpage to access any files on a user's machine unless given explicit permission (eg. a file upload).

It is possible to compile Firefox on RHEL 5 (I'm currently running Firefox 30 on RHEL 5) using Gentoo Prefix. It's a little work (Prefix's IRC channel is helpful) but using a proper package manager means all the dependencies are handled for you. Bootstrap Prefix, then just install Firefox with: $ ~/gentoo/startprefix # wherever your prefix shell script is ...

If you right click and select "Inspect Element" and then click the gear icon at the left hand side of the toolbox menu you should see "Available Toolbox Buttons" under which appears "3D View". Clicking this will add a new icon to the toolbox menu that when clicked will show the 3D Dom view.

I was actually looking for this feature in Pentadactyl a few days ago, but like Ehvince, I couldn't find it in the documentation. I'm sure a plugin can be written for it, but I tried to find a workaround for now.

Chrome has an easy way to use alternate search engines built into the browser itself: Search engines are automatically added as you browse, but you can add one manually by visiting Chrome's settings page: chrome://settings/searchEngines (Paste that Chrome-specific link into the address bar to get to the page in the screenshot above.)

This is not possible. You cannot render .php file as if it was .html . This is a built in functionality of the browsers and it is there for the reason.

NTLMv1 authentication has been disabled by default in Firefox 30. To enable, the pref network.negotiate-auth.allow-insecure-ntlm-v1 needs to be set to True. See: https://developer.mozilla.org/en-US/Firefox/Releases/30/Site_Compatibility (down the page under "Security").
