    Wow.

    I declare this..... the greatest setup in Malwaretips history. (y)

    One might ponder.... is it now time to close down MT? :unsure:

    But I wonder..... would The Green Kool-Aid help this setup?

    Nah. I guess not.

    So then.... It's perfect. 🏆

    I give this setup a very rare perfect FFFB (Full-Frontal Five Burrito) rating.

    Thanks for the HTTPZ – Get this Extension for 🦊 Firefox (en-US)
    Like an year ago I was looking to replace HTTPS Everywhere and found some similar addons including this one but ended up using Smart HTTPS but that one causes some issues now and then. Now installed HTTPZ and it's working perfectly without any issue :)
    Yes, I like this one. I got rid of POOP because I can tweak about:config. BTW, how do you have your request policy set up?

    Edit: I really like the "forget" feature in Firefox. I'm starting to like this browser in a new way!

    I haven't make any changes regarding request policy and didn't know about the POOP extension either. I use Smart Referer which does the job I guess?! :unsure:

    You mean this guy? claustromaniac - Overview
    POOP, HTTPZ, Etag-Stoppa all the extensions are his creation. Nice!
    Are you referring to this reference material? : Privacy-Oriented Origin Policy I guess not! This explains his extension works.
    Yes, that guy. I think it was something else like this guy. Anyway, I'm going to try this guy's # 2 suggestion tweak > about:config >
    network.http.referer.XOriginPolicy = 1 and see if it breaks any websites. Otherwise I may experiment some more or go get POOP again. I had no issues at all with that. Easy peasey!

    Maybe you saw this tweaks before: Web Browsers | PrivacyTools
    I made this changes to my Firefox for Android but wasn't sure on PC due to breakage concern so installed Smart Referer instead. It seems POOP and Smart Referer does similar things but I'm not sure.

    Yes, I've seen it. The tweak above is the source that PrivacyTools.io references. It won't break things @ "1" but it may @ "2". Using one of these tweaks you can get rid of another extension. Generally, I prefer less but have experimented since installing FF.

    Ok done, I agree on the getting rid of extension part so disabling smart referer and making this tweaks.
