Firefox: Mehr Sicherheit und Anonymität über about:config erreichen
Ich habe für mich eine kleine Auflistung mit erweiterten Einstellungen in Firefox erstellt, die ich für mich als wichtig empfinde und ich diese gerne mit euch teilen möchte.
Durch einen Fehler meinerseits im Dokument, hier der korrigierte Reupload!

This export can be done through the '...' menu and the 'Export Logins' option shown below. After clicking on Export Logins, Firefox will explain that the passwords will be stored in plain text and readable to anyone who has access to the file.
As extra security, if a user continues with the export process, Windows at least will prompt the user to first enter their Windows account password. If the correct password is entered, users will be prompted for a location to save the 'logins.csv' file, which will be used to export your login names and passwords. For those looking to move to a full-feature password manager, the ability to export your passwords is a useful feature. Unfortunately, this makes it easy for anyone who has access to your Windows password to dump a full list of your saved credentials and print them out. Therefore, be sure to only give your Windows password to someone you also trust to know your passwords.
We also heard your queries on the topic of snapd. This is a topic which is important to us and we already explained our position last year:MORE: https://blog.linuxmint.com/?p=3906
[…] as you install APT updates, Snap becomes a requirement for you to continue to use Chromium and installs itself behind your back. This breaks one of the major worries many people had when Snap was announced and a promise from its developers that it would never replace APT.
A self-installing Snap Store which overwrites part of our APT package base is a complete NO NO. It’s something we have to stop and it could mean the end of Chromium updates and access to the snap store in Linux Mint.
A year later, in the Ubuntu 20.04 package base, the Chromium package is indeed empty and acting, without your consent, as a backdoor by connecting your computer to the Ubuntu Store. Applications in this store cannot be patched, or pinned. You can’t audit them, hold them, modify them or even point snap to a different store. You’ve as much empowerment with this as if you were using proprietary software, i.e. none. This is in effect similar to a commercial proprietary solution, but with two major differences: It runs as root, and it installs itself without asking you.
First, I’m happy to confirm that Linux Mint 20, like previous Mint releases will not ship with any snaps or snapd installed. Second, to address this situation we’ll do exactly what we said we would:
- In Linux Mint 20, Chromium won’t be an empty package which installs snapd behind your back. It will be an empty package which tells you why it’s empty and tells you where to look to get Chromium yourself.
- In Linux Mint 20, APT will forbid snapd from getting installed.
You’ll still be able to install it yourself and we’ll document this in the release notes, but by default APT won’t allow repository packages from doing this on your behalf.
