I suggest you to start from the extension icon title.

I'll read it again and see.

I wish there would be a test where this kind of element blockers tested against malicious codes inside a website, malvertisings or popups.

I agree. It would be interesting to see it perform with no active AV, etc.

He states that blocking 3d-party(only over the HTTP) except the images and CSS files, will make browsing much more secure. This applies to my configuration too. I'm blocking all 3rd-parties except the CSS and images.

Yes, I've been following this as well. (y)


Level 5

- A lot of things :)


- Windows Defender, hardened via configure_defender (MAX settings, controlled folder access is disabled)
- Ublock Origin (Medium mode)
- Javascript is only enabled on HTTPS connections. (Chrome site settings)
- Malwarebytes Browser Extension installed. (Clickbait and advertising protections are disabled)
- FortiClient installed. (webfilter module only. Unrecognized domains are set to 'warn'.)


Level 5
I removed Forticlient. Decided that It's redundant while I'm using MBE and Neustar DNS.
Installed NoScript extension.
Made some changes on the Windows Defender Exploit Guard:

Mozilla Firefox 69.0b5/Plugin-Container.exe

- Block untrusted fonts
- EAF (1st checkbox selected)
- Hardened ASLR
- SimExec
- CallerCheck
- StackPivot


All of above + Code Integrity Protection (allow Microsoft Store signed images)


All of above +
- Block remote images
- Do not allow child processes

My new config.

I uninstalled everything except Defender. Installed VoodoShield and WiseVector instead. I think these three are a good combo, maybe I should consider replacing Defender with another antivirus as it is high on HDD usage as far as I remember. I'm thinking of installing Huorong, but it has weak signatures, probably weaker than Defender's. I couldn't decide which one.
