LibreWolf is an independent “fork” of Firefox, with the primary goals of privacy security and user freedom. It is the community run successor to LibreFox.
LibreWolf is designed to minimize data collection and telemetry as much as possible. This is achieved through hundreds of privacy/security/performance settings and patches. Intrusive integrated addons including updater, crashreporter, and pocket are removed too.
- Latest Firefox — LibreWolf is compiled directly from the latest build of Firefox Stable. You will have the the latest features, and security updates.
- Independent Build — LibreWolf uses a build independent of Firefox and has its own settings, profile folder and installation path. As a result, it can be installed alongside Firefox or any other browser.
- No phoning home — Embedded server links and other calling home functions are removed. In other words, minimal background connections by default.
- User settings updates
- Extensions firewall: limit internet access for extensions.
- - Multi-platform (Windows/Linux/Mac/and soon Android)
- Dark theme (classic and advanced)
LibreWolf 99.0 changelog:
- The Mozilla 99.0 release notes.
- Now checking the PGP signature from the Firefox upstream tarball.
- Added 'Enable Firefox Sync' setting: Does what it says, but requires a restart.
- 'Limit cross-origin referrers' setting; Send a referrer only on same-origin: The same-origin policy is an important security mechanism that restricts how a document or script loaded by one origin can interact with a resource from another origin.
