Ublock Origin is an obvious one, but I also can’t stand not having Foxy Gestures anymore. It adds customizable mouse gestures, so you can set it up to have easy swipes to go back a page, reload a page, close a tab, etc, and it feels wonderful and smooth to use compared to just using the traditional buttons to do everything. Honestly it’s kinda wild to me that this isn’t more popular now that people are so used to phone gestures. It’s good for the same reasons!

Does anyone know of an extension that let’s you view privated subs on Reddit? I’m tired of the not being able to access important info because of the blackouts. If anyone knows of an extension or a TamperMonkey script please let me know!

This won’t be possible. Best you can do is use something like waybackmachine to get a cached version of the page.

Shame, thank you though I will be sure to try the wayback machine!

I find punching “cache:” before the url into google gets me the most recent comments. A lot of the time wayback will only have an archive of when the thread was created.

  • uBlock Origin
  • Dark Reader
  • Bypass Paywalls
  • Decentraleyes
  • Enhancer for YouTube
  • Return YouTube Dislike

ublock origin and firefox enhanced tracking protection already does what Decentraleyes is supposed to do, so its not needed if you already use firefox and ublock origins.

also, try out following extwnsions too:

  • firefox multi account containers
  • sponsorblock for youtube
  • localcdn

I run Firefox

  • AdNauseam (One step further than uBlock Origin, it actively clicks everything that missed my DNS blocks)
  • Bitwarden
  • Decentraleyes
  • Enhance-O-Tron for Plex (For some reason some videos in my library have black bars hard coded into them. I could probably re-encode them to get rid of the bars, but this add-on just hides the bars at a button click. It’s only a problem for monitors wider than 16:9)
  • Enhancer for Youtube ™ (Automatically expand the canvas out to the full screen and a bunch of other stuff.)
  • Facebook Container (I don’t use facebook, but the containers are nice to keep shit separated)
  • Keepa - Amazon Price Tracker
  • NoScript
  • Redirect AMP to HTML
  • ShareX ( I have workflows that automatically store stuff into my nextcloud and setup share links)
  • SponsorBlock for Youtube - Skip Sponsorships
  • Stylus

I had stuff for Reddit… but since I’ve moved off the platform, that’s been nixed. And for those of you using the cookie accepting apps… Why not just block the element with uBlock?

  • JShelter actively fights fingerprinting.
  • NoScript blocks by domain by default.
  • uBlock Origin with cookie list to block ads, trackers, and hide cookie banners.
  • DarkReader to help the eyes.
  • Stylus to fix any CSS not fixed by the rest.
  • ublock origin
  • privacy badger
  • decentraleyes
  • clear URLs
  • facebook container
  • https everywhere
  • firefox multi-account containers
  • dictionary anywhere

Decentraleyes … Nice! Never seen that one! I always suspected hosted libraries and the such come at a costs (like jQuery etc…).

Decentraleyes was good but has been unmaintained for quite some time, I believe LocalCDN is the current replacement.

I heard a lot about Decentraleyes but I don’t really understand how it works. What does it do? I’d love to add another privacy tool to my arsenal! :)

Mine’s Redirector. I use it to force redirection of some URLs, for example:

  • Redirecting an amp URL to a non-amp
  • Redirecting the URL of a small-scaled image to the URL of the original size
  • Redirecting a mobile site to its desktop equvalent (e.g. Wikipedia)
  • When I was using Reddit, I also used this extension to force all links to go to old.reddit.com

Facebook container is one i use that blocks facebook tracking with tracking pixels for example.

Scrubbles

Fakespot - analyzes online store reviews, removes bots and readjusts the score away from fake scores to actual mean score

I physically can’t use a browser without Vimium anymore.

The <T> shortcut alone makes Vimium a must, it makes switching between tabs so much easier. The only drawbacks of the extension I’ve found are having to adjust settings for the odd websites that have shortcuts and certain elements not working well with Vimium “clicks” (like the Lemmy sort order dropdown list!).

And it borks the YouTube shortcut keys, but I still love it. Incredibly useful when using a laptop/track pad.

Tree Style Tabs for Firefox gets installed on every Desktop install I use.

Wow thank you. I had no idea this was a thing!

For Lemmy:

Stylus. And then find Lemmy scripts on UserStyles.world to install into Stylus and you can change the look and feel for Lemmy to make it more like Reddit, or whatever. I currently use a combination of ‘Better Lemmy’ and ‘Old reddit-ish Lemmy’.

For general browsing:

uBlock Origin for ads

Privacy Badger for tracking

For YouTube:

Enhancer for YouTube

I shared one on reddit that replaces pictures of spiders with kittens and it was met with a pretty shocking amount of hatred and vitriol brought my way, so nervous to share it here. But still I thought it was nice.

Wait. No, share it. Please! 🥺

here it is for firefox. I think there’s one for chrome and for edge too

Thanks for sharing. Just added it! lol

I really appreciate you!

I had a similar one but for the former president. I still have it installed and it always confuses me for a second until I remember it.

Yo could share a link that. I’d love to see it in action when a prowl the cesspool that is r/politics on Reddit. XD.

https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/make-firefox-kittens-again/

That’s the one. May your day be brighter with more kittens while doomscrolling the news.

I almost destroyed a phone once when I scrolled down to an unexpected spider image, my fight or flight response kicked in, and I threw the phone across the room. So this sounds amazing!!

If only mobile Firefox had even a little bit of extension support.
