  • user.js

    Firefox privacy, security and anti-tracking: a comprehensive user.js template for configuration and hardening

    I would argue that Arkenfox is not really a advance setting, out of the box then yes but with some adjustment, it's perfect. With the minimize resolution setting disable and using KeePass password manager (the very best password manager, open source as well) you can pretty much use it hassle-free. You can check out their test sites here

  • uBlock-issues

    This is the community-maintained issue tracker for uBlock Origin

    Since Brave already has a pretty good ad blocker, you should not use another blocker like uBlock Origin. "Do not use uBlock Origin along with other similarly-purposed blockers" (https://github.com/gorhill/uBlock). Additionally the available features on Chromium browsers of uBlock Origin is a bit different than on Firefox (e.g. no CNAME uncloaking). LocalCDN is not recommended to use and just brings unnecessary complexity to the testing.

  • uBlock

    uBlock Origin - An efficient blocker for Chromium and Firefox. Fast and lean.

    Since Brave already has a pretty good ad blocker, you should not use another blocker like uBlock Origin. "Do not use uBlock Origin along with other similarly-purposed blockers" (https://github.com/gorhill/uBlock).
