Firefix Browser Security?
« on: March 03, 2012, 12:06:16 AM »
Can anyone recommend some add-ons to protect against trackers, scripts, malware etc.? I've been trying out NoScript, but am fed up with having to either unblock stuff all the time or just have pages not work because I'm concerned about a single script. I'm happy to be slightly less protected for slightly less frustration. :P

What do you lot use?

While noscript is king, I just use ad-block and Ghostery.  Works pretty well.  Definitely recommend both.  Ghostery works well against trackers.

Noscript is the best, you're better off dealing with minor frustration of blocked scripts that you didn't want blocked. I hate to sound like a dick here but your complaint is minor regarding why you don't like noscript. You can set what's blocked and what isn't on your first visit to the site and unblock the scripts you want in use any time, or block anythin your fear in the future. Honestly, buck up and deal with it.

TASTY!

Thanks guys. Yeah, I've actually stuck with noscript anyway. Like you say, my complaint was minor. Once I got used to it, it wasn't so bad.
