Hello. The purpose of this thread is to allow everyone to make themselves less visible on the Internet by having the same exact set of extensions and addons that help form the browser fingerprint as recognized by Panopticlick. https://panopticlick.eff.org/ So first we should look at what Panopticlick finds. Disregard the "number of bits" and instead look at "one in x browsers have this value" and then find the biggest numbers. Usually the "Browser Plugin Details" and "Fonts" are the largest by far. So since there is nothing that can be done to fix the Fonts problem without messing up the entire system, let's instead focus on the Browser Plugin Details. https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/betterprivacy/ https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/canvasblocker/ https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/classicthemerestorer/ https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/disconnect/ https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/form-history-control/ https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/ghostery/ https://code.google.com/p/https-finder/downloads/detail?name=httpsfinder_0.91b.xpi https://www.eff.org/https-everywhere https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/no-google-analytics/ https://www.eff.org/privacybadger https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/requestpolicy/ https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/self-destructing-cookies/ https://addons.mozilla.org/en-us/firefox/addon/ssleuth/ https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/ublock-origin/ https://secure.informaction.com/download/releases/noscript-126.96.36.199.xpi https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/youtube-high-definition/ (The last one is not needed, but it is nice not to have to change the resolution every single time you play a video from Youtube. And getting rid of annotations forever is worth it by itself.) Now. That is the list of extensions I have for this profile. Plugins are still a problem. For plugins Firefox 40+ comes with two that probably should never be disabled. I suggest adding Flash, Silverlight, Unity and VLC Web player. (You get the last by installing Videolan and choosing the option.) All plugins that can be set to "Ask to Activate" should be. Any suggestions to make this more useful and private? (And just to clarify, this thread is identical to another I made on the PIA forums a while back. I still think people should make a unified browser profile to combat malicious sites finding what type of system we use. And I welcome input.)
