Secure my web browser with extensions - FireFox.

Most users work, play, interact, pay our bills and read news online, via a webbrowser and this also means you need to be careful in choosing which browser to use. In the examples below, I will use Firefox Quantum 65.0.2 64-bit as an example of how you can make your online experience safer.

  • Alway keep your browser updated.
  • Use a private window.
  • Protect your passwords, with the built-in tool, called Master Password ( Firefox ). Make sure it is a strong password, so you protect the rest.
  • Know what your extensions do.

Here are some of the extensions recommended, you really should read the entire Firefox installation guide, under our gallery:

  • NoScript - Allow active content to run only from sites you trust, and protect yourself against XSS and Clickjacking attacks, "Spectre", "Meltdown" and other JavaScript exploits.
     
  • Avast Online Security - Identifies and blocks known phishing sites and displays a website’s security rating.
     
  • Facebook Container - Opens Facebook in a containerized tab.
    NOTE: Firefox Multi-Account Containers is required for this.
     
  • Firefox Multi-Account Containers - Allows you to configure sites of your choice, to open in a containerized tab.
     
  • CryptoMining Blocker - blocks cryptomining websites, inline mining script in websites and helps to do safe-browsing.
     
  • PassFF - Integrates with pass (A UNIX password manager) to store credentials safely.
     
  • Privacy Badger - Automatically learns to block hidden trackers.
     
  • uBlock Origin - Blocks trackers based on known existing lists.

What else Do you need to know, well, there isn't any 100% security guarantee, but you'll minimize the risk of having your data stolen.
