  1. Tor Uplift project Tor Browser based on Firefox ESR, plus a lot of patches. Takes a lot of time to rebase patches. Mission was to reduce their efforts. Mozilla started bringing Tor Browser patches into Firefox. Successful new features in Tor Browser/Firefox in the last 1.5 years: First-party isolation, and fingerprinting resistance. First Party Isolation, off by default in Firefox. Fingerprinting resistance issue, breaks some websites. Fusion Project goals Fingerprinting resistance, make more user friendly and reduce web breakage Implement proxy
  2. Mashing up two network technologies -- DNS and HTTPS -- thwarts snooping and tampering. Browser makers are trying to thwart network snoopers by encrypting your connections to the web servers that host websites, but Mozilla on Friday began a project to go one step further. Firefox Nightly, a rough-around-the-edges test version of Mozilla's browser, now includes technology called DNS over HTTPS, Mozilla said. DNS is the Domain Name System used to find the numeric addresses needed to communicate with computers across the network -- 64.30.228.118 for CNET.com, for exam
  3. Netmarketshare's browser market share has just been updated to include May 2018 share information. The company recorded a drop below the 10% mark in the desktop and laptop devices market for the Mozilla Firefox browser. Firefox had a market share of 12.63% in June 2017 according to Netmarketshare and even managed to rise above the 13% mark in 2017 before its share fell to 9.92% in May 2018. Google Chrome, Firefox's biggest rival in the browser world, managed to increase its massive lead from 60.08% in June 2017 to 62.85% in May 2018. Microsoft's Internet Exp
  4. OpenSourcery Tropical IPA made with open-source mindset and ancient art of brewing Open-sourced beer.....whatever next? MOZILLA MAKES software and Firefox, so the last place you'd expect it to be is a brewery, but it's teamed up with one to create an open-sourced beer. The company worked with Oregon-based brewery Widmer Brothers to create a beer based on data collected from a survey that was then crunched by the brewers to figure out the combination of hops and other ingredients and beer style that would suit the beer-swilling community. "W
  5. Mozilla is rolling out support for a two-step authentication process for Firefox Accounts, the credentials system that protects bookmarks, passwords, open tabs and other data synchronized between devices via the Firefox Sync feature. The feature is being gradually rolled out to users, according to Mozilla engineer Vijay Budhram. The feature is also not SMS code-based. Instead, the system works with authentication codes produced by standard TOTP (Time-based One-Time Password) apps and services, such as Authy, Duo, Google Authenticator, and others. As the featur
  6. A Controversial Plan to Encrypt More of the Internet The road to routing all Domain Name System lookups through HTTPS is pocked with disagreements over just how much it will help. ILLUSTRATION: ELENA LACEY; GETTY IMAGES The security community generally agrees on the impo
  7. Mozilla Developer has a new YouTube Channel where you will find videos to help you do your job as a web designer, developer, or person involved making websites or web apps. Both these short videos come from Jen Simmons and introduce helpful Firefox Developer Tools. Subscribe to the YouTube channel to be notified of new content. The new video channel was launched with the following three videos in its about:web playlist. Announcing these video shorts as part of a wider initiative, Miriam Suzanne, who presents two of them, writes:
  8. Mozilla cleans up Firefox to cut risk of code injection attacks and deter use of a dangerous JavaScript function. Firefox-maker Mozilla has detailed its recent efforts to harden the browser against code injection attacks. That hardening work has focused on removing "potentially dangerous artifacts" in the Firefox codebase, including inline scripts and eval()-like functions, according to Mozilla's content security lead Christoph Kerschbaumer. The removal of inline scripts is meant to improve protection for Firefox's 'about' protocol, more common
  9. Mozilla revenue dropped in 2018 but it is still doing well Mozilla published the organization's Annual Report for the year 2018 on November 25, 2019. The report, an audited financial statement, provides information on income and expenses in the year 2018. One of the main questions that Firefox users may have had after 2017 was how well Mozilla was doing after it canceled the search deal with Yahoo (which was acquired by Verizon and the main search provider since 2014 when Mozilla picked Yahoo over Google). Mozilla switched from a model in which it sel
  10. Funding online content with small consumer payments rather than intrusive and privacy-compromising ads has for years been a goal for many internet theorists and publishers. “We’re at a point where it’s clear there’s kinds of negative side effects for people and even for democracy of the data-driven ad economy that funds the internet,” says Mark Surman, executive director of the Mozilla Foundation. Now, Mozilla, Creative Commons, and a new micropayment startup have announced a $100 million grant program to finally bring that dr
  11. Firefox users won't be able to sideload extensions starting March 2020, with Firefox 74. Mozilla has announced today plans to discontinue one of the three methods through which extensions can be installed in Firefox. Starting next year, Firefox users won't be able to install extensions by placing an XPI extension file inside a special folder inside a user's Firefox directory. The method, known as sideloading, was initially created to aid developers of desktop apps. In case they wanted to distribute a Firefox extension with their desktop app, the
  12. New TLS protocol extension will shorten the window an attacker has to perform a man-in-the-middle attack. Facebook, Mozilla, and Cloudflare announced today a new technical specification called TLS Delegated Credentials, currently undergoing standardization at the Internet Engineering Task Force (IETF). The new standard will work as an extension to TLS, a cryptographic protocol that underpins the more widely-known HTTPS protocol, used for loading websites inside browsers via an encrypted connection. The TLS Delegate Credentials extension w
  13. Mozilla has been heavily invested in WebAssembly with Firefox, and today, the organization teamed up with a few others to form the new Bytecode Alliance, which aims to create "new software foundations, building on standards such as WebAssembly and WebAssembly System Interface (WASI)". Mozilla has teamed up with Intel, Red Hat, and Fastly to found the alliance, but more members are likely to join over time. The goal of the Bytecode Alliance is to create a new runtime environment and language toolchains which are secure, efficient, and modular, while also being available on as many p
  14. Despite looking to make DNS-over-HTTPS (DoH) the default for its American users, Mozilla has assured culture secretary Nicky Morgan that this won't be the case in the UK. DoH has been fairly controversial, with the Internet Services Providers Association (ISPAUK) nominating Mozilla for an 'Internet Villain' over the whole thing, saying it will "bypass UK filtering obligations and parental controls, undermining internet safety standards in the UK." In his letter to Morgan, Mozilla vice president of global policy, trust and security, Alan Davidson, stressed t
  15. Mozilla announces that it will comply with Californian privacy rules worldwide Mozilla has announced that it plans to abide by the new California Consumer Privacy Act (CCPA) on a worldwide scale in the new year, not just for those based in the western U.S. state. For those that haven’t been tracking CCPA, it’s a new law that gives Californians more privacy protections, similar to what Europeans have with the GDPR. The CCPA comes into effect on January 1, 2020. With the CCPA in place, the Attorney General of Califonia is allowed to enforce privacy
  16. Thunderbird continues to be one of the most advanced email clients available for download on desktop platforms, and despite Mozilla originally planning to give up on the app, the company now wants to improve it substantially with updates released during the course of 2019. In an announcement published a few days ago, Mozilla says one of the areas where the development team would focus is making the application substantially faster. “This is an area where I think we will see some of the best improvements in Thunderbird for 2019, as we look into methods for testing and measuring slowne
  17. Mozilla will start the test of a commercial VPN offering tomorrow for a subset of users in the United States. The organization has not created its own VPN network but partnered up with the Swiss VPN provider ProtonVPN to use the established network of the provider. The test starts on October 22, 2018 in the United States for a sample of users of Firefox 62. Only some users who use Firefox 62 in the United States will be invited to participate in the test. There is no surefire way to be selected for the test as criteria for selection are quite diverse. Users who connect to an Open (
  18. Mozilla gives back to the Tor Project after it embedded multiple Tor Browser features into Firefox. Mozilla will be matching all donations made to the Tor Project until the end of the year, the Tor Project announced today. The announcement came as the Tor Project launched this week its scheduled end-of-year donations campaign through which the organization supplements its next year's budget. This is the second year in a row that Mozilla has agreed to match Tor Project donations. Last year, the Tor Project raised $200,000 from user donations, and
  19. Mozilla is bringing support for Google's WebP image format to Firefox 65. The WebP image format was created by Google as a modern format designed for displaying images on the web. "WebP lossless images are 26% smaller in size compared to PNGs. WebP lossy images are 25-34% smaller than comparable JPEG images at equivalent SSIM quality index." states Google. Popular browsers such as Chrome, Opera, and Edge already support the WebP image format and with the release of version 65, Firefox will as well. Unfortunately, even with Firefox 65, WebP
  20. There are many problems with web advertising in general, including annoying features like autoplay video ads and pop-ups and also problems like “click fraud” which matter to advertisers. This essay will however be focusing on the privacy issues with some of the kinds of ads that Google produces and the history behind them, and why Larry/Sergey didn’t consider them when buying DoubleClick for example. Also discussed is Mozilla and how they are involved (like in the Google/Mozilla search deal), including Brendan Eich who created JavaScript that eventually left Mozilla to found Brave. There is al
  21. But there's a lot of security issues to think about first Combining online and offline could lead to security settings not listed here A CONSORTIUM of developers is looking for a way that will allow users to edit locally saved files in web apps. The grou, led by teams from Google Chrome and Mozilla Firefox, has a few hurdles to overcome before we can even think about this sort of thing as "normal", because exposing offline files to the internet is fraught with danger. At the moment, users need to upload files, edit them and download them aga
  22. Prevent Facebook from tracking you around the web. The Facebook Container extension for Firefox helps you take control and isolate your web activity from Facebook. What does it do? Facebook Container works by isolating your Facebook identity into a separate container that makes it harder for Facebook to track your visits to other websites with third-party cookies. How does it work? Installing this extension closes your Facebook tabs, deletes your Facebook cookies, and logs you out of Facebook. The next time you navigate to Facebook it will
  23. In Changing Our Approach To Anti-Tracking, Mozilla revealed plans to improve the privacy protection of Firefox users and the performance of the browser through the improved implementation of content blocking in the web browser. Firefox will protect users by blocking tracking by default and improve performance at the same time according to Mozilla. We reviewed the new content blocking options that Mozilla tests in Firefox Nightly currently already in July. The new feature, called Content Blocking in Nightly, integrates Firefox's long standing feature Tracking Protection
  24. Mozilla about to launch VPN beta Mozilla, maker of the Firefox web browser, will launch the first beta of its upcoming VPN service in the coming weeks. The organization launched Firefox Private Network in September 2019 which added a browser proxy to the web browser. Available only for users from the United States at the time, it resembled the VPN feature of the Opera web browser and third-party VPN extensions the most. Firefox Private Network protects user data by encrypting it and masking the IP address of the connection at the same time. Mozilla pi
