Is there some "UserChrome" way to add a "New Tab" option to the tab context menu? I am so use to that functionality and had forgot that I actually had an addon to implement it, but it's not functional with Firefox Quantums.

Facebook Container Extension: Take control of how you’re being tracked

Quote

This extension helps you control more of your web activity from Facebook by isolating your identity into a separate container. This makes it harder for Facebook to track your activity on other websites via third-party cookies.

 

Rather than stop using a service you find valuable and miss out on those adorable photos of your nephew, we think you should have tools to limit what data others can collect about you. That includes us: Mozilla does not collect data from your use of the Facebook Container extension. We only know the number of times the extension is installed or removed.

 

When you install this extension it will delete your Facebook cookies and log you out of Facebook. The next time you visit Facebook it will open in a new blue-colored browser tab (aka “container tab”). In that tab you can login to Facebook and use it like you normally would. If you click on a non-Facebook link or navigate to a non-Facebook website in the URL bar, these pages will load outside of the container.

 

Should you click on any Facebook Share buttons on other browser tabs it will load them within the Facebook container. You should know that when you’re using these buttons information will be sent to Facebook about the website that you shared from.

If you use your Facebook credentials to create an account or log in using your Facebook credentials, it may not work properly and you may not be able to login. Also, because you’re logged into Facebook in the container tab, embedded Facebook comments and Like buttons in tabs outside the Facebook container tab will not work. This prevents Facebook from associating information about your activity on websites outside of Facebook to your Facebook identity. So it may look different than what you are used to seeing.

There’s a lot of value in your social data. It’s important to regularly review your privacy settings on all sites and applications that use it. The EFF has useful advice on how to keep your data where you want it to be, under more of your control.

A very interesting extension if you ask me. :)

      Mozilla launches Firefox 81 with new Alpenglow theme
      by Paul Hill



      Mozilla has announced the availability of Firefox 81. The new update comes with a raft of new features including audio and video control from your keyboard or headset, a new browser theme called Alpenglow, and credit card autofill in the U.S. and Canada.

      With the ability to pause and play audio and video in Firefox from your keyboard or headset, you’ll now be able to better control your browser media even when you’re in another Firefox tab, in another program, or when you’re computer is locked. Check out the support page to get more information on the ins and outs of the new tool.

      Another nifty feature in Firefox 81 is AcroForm support, which will allow you to fill in, print, and save supported PDF forms. To accompany this, Mozilla has also given the PDF viewer a fresh new look.

      With the launch of Firefox 77 in June, Mozilla brought Pocket integration to its browser for users situated in the U.K. With today’s update, users in Austria, Belgium, and Switzerland using the German version of Firefox will now see Pocket recommendations on the new tab page.

      Avid shoppers in the United States and Canada will benefit from the ability to save, manage, and autofill credit and debit card information while shopping online. If you can’t see this option just yet, hold on a little while longer while Mozilla completes the rollout. Hopefully, this won’t take too long to arrive for other users around the world.

      Finally, Mozilla has added a purple-pinkish theme to its browser. The new theme is dubbed Alpenglow and gives users another theme option aside from Default, Light, and Dark.

      If you’re already using Firefox, you'll receive the update automatically in the coming days. You can also press the menu button, go to Help, and then About Firefox to apply the update manually. Linux users will need to wait until their distribution's repositories have been updated. If you don’t use Firefox at all, you can download it from Mozilla’s website.

      Mozilla is abandoning Firefox Send over malware and spear phishing abuses
      by Jay Bonggolto

      Mozilla launched Firefox Send in March 2019 as a tool for uploading large files to its servers and sharing the download link with contacts, all in an encrypted environment. However, Send was abused by bad actors to spread malware and launch spear phishing attacks, leading to the service's suspension this summer when Mozilla began investigating the matter.

      Today, Mozilla announced that it won't relaunch Send and, instead, will shut it down for good. The company described the service as "a promising tool for encrypted file sharing", which already "garnered good reach, a loyal audience, and real signs of value throughout its life." Send won't have any major status change since it's already offline.

      In addition, Firefox Notes will be shut down in early November. It was launched two years ago as a straightforward note-taking app on Android with end-to-end encryption to keep notes safe. That said, its desktop browser extension will stay in place if you've already installed it. Also, you will be able to export your notes.

      These legacy services are part of Mozilla's Firefox Test Pilot program. The decision comes as the company is restructuring its organization and shifting its focus to "new product development and go to market activities". It announced the restructuring last month along with the layoff of some 250 employees.

      Basilisk 2020.09.11
      by Razvan Serea



      Basilisk is a free and Open Source XUL-based web browser created by the developers of the Pale Moon browser. It is based on the Goanna layout and rendering engine (a fork of Gecko) and builds on the Unified XUL Platform (UXP), which in turn is a fork of the Mozilla code base without Servo or Rust.

      Basilisk as an application is primarily a vessel for development of the XUL platform it builds upon, and additionally a potential replacement for Firefox to retain the use of Firefox Extensions. It aims to retain useful technologies that its sibling Firefox has removed.

      Requires Windows 7 or later. Windows XP or Windows Vista are not supported.

      Main features:

      Full support for JavaScript's ECMAscript 6 standard for modern web browsing. Support for all NPAPI plugins (Unity, Silverlight, Flash, Java, authentication plugins, etc.). Support for XUL/Overlay Mozilla-style extensions. Experimental support for WebExtensions (in gecko-target mode). Please note that some Mozilla-specific WebExtension APIs are not yet available. Support for ALSA on Linux. Support for WebAssembly (WASM). Support for advanced Graphite font shaping features. Support for modern web cryptography: up to TLS 1.3, modern ciphers, HSTS, etc. Important differences with Mozilla Firefox:

      Uses Goanna as a layout and rendering engine. Goanna behaves slightly differently than Gecko in certain respects and may result in different display of web pages. e.g.: Goanna renders gradients in a more accurate color space (non-premultiplied). Builds on UXP, our XUL platform in development. As such XUL is alive and well in this browser and will not be deprecated. Has some long-standing known issues with the Mozilla code-base fixed (e.g. CVE-2009-1232). Does not use Rust or the Photon user interface. You can expect a familiar interface as-carried by Firefox between v29 and v56. Does not use Electrolysis (e10s, multi-process browsing). Does not require walled-garden extension signing. Basilisk 2020.09.11 changelog:

      Updated JavaScript module loading in accordance with the spec for web compatibility. Disabled a function related to WebComponents to prevent mis-detection. Improved compatibility with websites that try to style standard form elements. Updated the SQLite library to 3.33.0. Changed media errors to be a more generic response, improving user privacy. Improved code stability (fixed a number of crashes). Updated the NSS library for various connection security fixes. Security issues addressed in this release: CVE-2020-15664, CVE-2020-15666, CVE-2020-15667, CVE-2020-15668 and CVE-2020-15669. Unified XUL Platform Mozilla Security Patch Summary: 4 fixed, 1 defense-in-depth, 1 rejected, 9 not applicable. Download: Basilisk 2020.09.11 (32-bit) | Portable | ~50.0 MB (Open Source)
