Firefox and Adblock work on my pc
Am I right in assuming Chrome installs from a server where as Firefox can be installed offline.
That's not surprising, but very interesting. I've just recently become aware of the extent to which this sort of data collection and tracking is taking place. To call it aggressive is an understatement. I like Firefox for the same reasons, by the way. To the best of my knowledge, Chrome does not block fingerprinters or the social media trackers.
Nope, doesn’t work, I do regularly clear my cache and cookies. I also cash my cookies....
I have refrained from upgrading for a few days after release, since that 59 to 60 debacle mucked everything up. I check http://forums.mozillazine.org/ to see if anything major happened b 4 I download
Where can I cash my cookies?
Set FireFox to notify you when there is an update, and wait a week.. By then if there are issues you will know it..
I second that emotion, rze99!
I'm running a Linux Mint 18.3 (Cinnamon) OS, with the Opera browser, on our personal laptop. Linux Mint ships with the Firefox browser; however, IME, Opera IS faster and more reliable.
I'm encouraged by the IT industry's endorsement.
Oprah is full of bloatware.
I keed! I keed!
I use Opera. Switched from Firefox about two years ago. It works really well.
Firefox used to be good... until stuff started slowing down, and things stopped working. I couldn't load my e-mail one day, every other browser I could except FF. And I didn't have NoScript either at the time.
Thanks again for all the info and suggestions!
Opera browser, Yandex browser, and Brave browser are all using Google's Chromium source code. however, it is worth noting that Brave browser (so far) is the only company who has guaranteed that they will NOT ship the privacy unfriendly changes that Google will ship in the upcoming versions of Chrome.
For giggles I deleted all the extensions and downloaded the two main ones I wanted, AdBlock plus and 1Password, and both seem to be working fine!
thanks again for all the feedback.
I changed to Opera and have not looked back. The only shortcoming is that some website software is not compatible with Opera and if I take care of business there, I have to change over to Pale Moon, Firefox, Chrome, etc.
I miss netscape!
Used FF for years, but bloat, memory leaks, and broken code with every update sent me to Opera. Slightly crude, but fast and friendly for the most part. Cross platform compatibility and "MyFlow" are good things.
So if Opera depends on Google then it may not hold up in the long term as far as neutrality/ data mining goes?
Google wants what it wants and has some amount of power to get it if Opera uses google product?
I stick with Firefox because in addition to it working for me, I like that it seems to fight for net neutrality and defend against data mining, at least to some degree. Adblock works well and no problems of late.
Websites that demand I switch off adblock just don't get my business.
I'm not really up on computer stuff so I may have some of this wrong.
I generally stay away from businesses that steal from me, plus other businesses that do business with businesses that steal from me.
Stealing is broadly interpreted but taking my stuff and selling it to others, or telling me half truths to get my business is on my list of "stealing".
At this point I suppose it's a losing or even a lost battle, and I do use an outlook email acct as well as an apple email acct.
When it comes up I like to see what others are doing, but I'm more in denial about the mining of my personal data.
you can stlil have it!
could it be reworked to use duckduckgo instead?
Bullfrog, I'm using the same version on an iMac and have none of the issues you're facing. I think some other software must be messing with you're extensions. I moved back to Firefox recently how much Google is mining my data. Ublock is the best adblocker extension I've found. Maybe delete and reinstall your extensions?
