@ashlk Mozilla can't be trusted. I still tolerate FF for now but with a highly customized user.js based on github.com/pyllyukko/user.js.g and using external tools to wipe the entire profile directory and cache after each use.

Every update I have to check if nothing broke and if Firefox hasn't "accidentally" developed new antifeatures which must be addressed via user.js.

Sooner or later me and FF will have to part ways. Whether there's a viable replacement or not.

Interesting. Thank you!

I saw somewhere about using an unTORed Tor browser as a replacement for FF. Planning to give it a try. It won't have latest features, but can be good for privacy

@ashlk That's a nice trick. I do of course use #Tor, but with firefox-esr from Debian. (Tor browser is not available in Debian Buster.)
