Here’s a list of options I modified in my firefox’s about:config.
I use the mouse middle click to copy and paste stuff. So when I accidentally press that mouse middle click while reading a web page, I don’t want Firefox to load whatever’s in my buffer as a URL.
Mozilla decided to look more like Google Chrome and started to hide relevant parts of the URL like
http://. This feature has helped me exactly 0 time, while on the other hand it was annoying many times when copy/pasting from the URL bar would not give me the entire URL (and the results were not consistent).
Disabling unsecure ciphers
- security.ssl3.rsa_rc4_128_md5 [this one seems required for Youtube’s https to work]
You can now check if your browser uses secure SSL/TLS cipher.
Replace Google with DuckDuckGo on Firefox
- browser.search.defaultenginename: DuckDuckGo
- browser.search.selectedEngine: DuckDuckGo
