I believe privacy is a fundamental human right, and I set up technology to help enforce my privacy on the internet. I use Firefox as my web browser because it’s open source and not run by an advertising company. A web browser is a user agent, meaning it works for the user. Here are the settings I configure to help me be private on the web.

I suggest you maintain a user.js file in your Firefox profile directory to back up your settings, you can find every equivalent GUI setting by querying its name on searchfox.

Yeah, it does, maybe not with MAC since you could need it to keep your cookies, though.

I also recommend Redirect AMP to HTML and CSS Exfil Protection, and in my opinion Privacy Redirect is also redundant, I prefer something like Violent Monkey for that since at least you could add more scripts or stuff.

I do use Redirect AMP to HTML, but I didn’t initially think of it as a privacy extension. Thinking about it more, it would keep you off of Google’s AMP CDN, which is a privacy win. I’ll add it to the post.

Cookie Autodelete helps when you have a long-lived temporary container, usually from shift-clicking links to open in a new tab, which ends up inheriting the same container.
