Mozilla launches Android app for Firefox Private Network VPN – here's how to try it | TechRadar

We've known about Mozilla's VPN service for a little while now, and now the company has released an Android app for beta testing.

Mozilla has already released a browser extension for Firefox that provides free access to the service in the US, but apps for Android, iOS, Windows, macOS, Linux and Chromebook are also planned.

Microsoft flirts with new anti-trust challenge with new Start Menu-based Edge ads | MSPoweruser

Microsoft’s recent extensive advertising is becoming hard to ignore, which has prompted many users to disable the ads. Those who haven’t done so may have noticed the most recent one takes a dig at a competitor browser.
The listing displays “Still using Firefox? Microsoft Edge is here”, to all users of the former- even with the latter already installed.
MS getting all anxious and needy...

You should update Firefox now to patch a serious security flaw – here's how | TechRadar

Mozilla has released an urgent Firefox update after discovering a serious security vulnerability that could allow attackers to take control of users' computers.

The problem affects desktop versions of the browser, including Firefox ESR, which is intended for use by system administrators who control desktop environments in schools, offices, governments and other organizations.
Just run the browser and it should update. Go to Help, About Firefox on Windows and Linux, or Firefox, About Firefox on Mac to check which version you have. You might need to click an Update Firefox button there.

New #Firefox version 72 loses HPKP support.


But there is nothing mentioning it in official release notes. Everyone seems to be talking about much needed PiP video functions. However there is announcement on Firefox Site Compatibility and the function is indeed disabled after upgrade.

Non-techy explanation: Most sites use encryption (that padlock in the address bar). Encryption not only protects your data from eavesdroppers but also ensures you are indeed connected to the site you see in the address bar and not some counterfeit copy run by hackers. However there are ways to fool this identity verification if hackers have access to certificate authorities. This can be done by legal means (governments), administrative (your employeer might do this on their network) or illegally (leaks, hacks, CA bugs, etc) - but it is not uncommon. HPKP allows website owners to configure their websites in a way that these hijacking attempts fail. Only small percentage of websites uses HPKP but it does work and I see nothing wrong with it being enabled as option for more security-oriented resources.
Is this change disastrous and will we all die? No. Does it weaken security and makes us more vulnerable? Yes, it does,

Note that Firefox was the last to drop this functionality (Chrome did it almost one year ago) but the entire trend is sad. This feature was optional and transparent for users. If it worked it made you more secure with no extra effort. If it didn't there was zero overhead. With two major browses disabling it it is safe to say it is gone.

Personally my opinion is that this was done to improve compatibility with various traffic inspection systems. Basically it opens venues for big players to get into our traffic. But we trust these guys, right?

...
Thanks to @Max Kostikov for heads up.

В новом #Firefox 72 вслед за Google #Chrome таки выпилили механизм HPKP (подробнее см., например, статью "Технология HTTP Public Key Pining: внедрение и автоматизация совместно с Let's Encrypt").
В этой связи испытываю смешанные чувства. С одной стороны, с помощью HPKP можно легко "отсрелить себе ногу", с другой стороны - а где альтернатива механизму контроля со стороны владельца сайта / сертификата?
Им мог (и я считаю должен) бы стать #DNSSEC / #DANE, но поползновений в эту сторону я не вижу уже много лет.
Certificate Transparency, которую активно форсят, на данную роль мало подходит, поскольку, опять же, замыкает доверие на #CA.
Фактически, теперь со стороны владельца нет способов проконтролировать достоверность используемого на сайте #TLS сертификата и повлиять на возможность просмотра контента пользователем в случае если произошла подмена.

Firefox 72 arrives with fingerprinting blocked by default, Picture-in-Picture on macOS and Linux | VentureBeat

Mozilla today launched Firefox 72 for Windows, Mac, Linux, and Android. Firefox 72 includes fingerprinting scripts blocked by default, fewer annoying notifications, and Picture-in-Picture video on macOS and Linux. There isn’t too much else here, as Mozilla has now transitioned Firefox releases to a four-week cadence (from six to eight weeks).

Mozilla pulls four Firefox add-ons over excessive data collection | Engadget
Browser security extensions aren't automatically safer -- they might even make things worse. Mozilla has pulled Avast's Online Security and SafePrice extensions for Firefox, plus their AVG-branded equivalents, after AdBlock Plus creator Wladimir Palant found they were collecting much more data than necessary. This included a detailed web history that went well beyond site addresses and search history, including when and how long you visit a site, what you click, the number of open tabs and even when you switch to another tab. Mozilla's policies explicitly forbid this kind of fine-grained collection.

Firefox brings controversial encryption tool to the US by default, but not the UK | TechRadar

Mozilla won't make Domain-over-DNS (DoH) encryption the default option for Firefox users in the UK, despite planning to roll it out throughout the US very soon.

When you type a URL into your browser's address bar, the browser sends a request to a DNS server, which matches it to an IP address. Usually this request is sent in plain text, but with DoH, it's encrypted. This prevents the request being hijacked and stops you being sent to a different site from the one you wanted.

Want to make Firefox faster on Linux? There’s apparently an easy way to do just that.


Forcing #Firefox to use #hardware #acceleration on #Linux results in a noticeable boost in the application’s overall responsiveness.

Firefox comes with hardware acceleration disabled on all Linux distributions. So, to enable hardware acceleration in Firefox on Linux, right this flame-tailed second (but first be aware that WebGL has security risks or something).

Pop open your browser, type about:config in the address bar, and hit enter/return.

Using the search box to find the layers.acceleration.force-enabled setting. Double-click on the ‘false’ listed under the ‘value’ column to set it to ‘true’.

Firefox to get a random password generator, like Chrome | ZDNet

Mozilla is adding a random password generator to Firefox. Google added one to Chrome and Chromium-based browsers in the fall of 2018, with the release of Chrome/Chromium v69.

The Firefox random password generator is expected to become publicly available for all Firefox users with the release of Firefox 69, scheduled for release in early September, roughly a year after Chrome 69.

Firefox's latest privacy updates strengthen tracking protection | Engadget

Firefox is rolling out an "Enhanced Tracking Protection" feature today that will block a list of over a thousand third-party trackers compiled by Disconnect, an open-source anti-tracking tool. New users of the browser who are downloading it for the first time will have the tracking protections turned on by default. Current users can either select the feature manually or wait for Firefox to update it in the coming months.
In Firefox, select "About Firefox" from the Help menu and it should update itself.
