Hello

I have just moved over to Firefox from Google Chrome and I would like to install some security and privacy add-ons, what do you guys suggest?

Ad block plus. It's more of a ad blocker (tongue.gif), but it keeps the ad's to a minimum. It also allows you to bypass youtube ads before the video starts as well. thumb.gif

Make sure you get Waterfox. It is 64bit firefox and it can run waay better on your machine. There is a thread about it somewhere on OCN so just search for it.

Addons I use for Privacy

Ad-Block Plus
- Name speaks for itself. It blocks ads XD. You can also block certain images on site that are always there.

BetterPrivacy - Remove flash cookies and other stuff when you close firefox. I think it can block them as well (not gone into this part for myself)

CS Lite Mod
- Easy way to enable/block cookies for certain sites. Sets itself to gobally block all cookies. You have to manually allow each site but its just one button click.

NoScript - Similar to CS Lite but blocks scripts/javascript running for every site. Again you have to manually allow certain sites to allow scripting.

Ghostery - Blocks 3rd party web bugs. Such as when sites try to track your activity of what your doing.

HTTPS-Everywhere - Forces site to enable HTTPS if they have it.

HTTPS Finder -Works with HTTPS Everywhere, finds if the sites you visit have a HTTPS link and adds it to the list of know HTTPS sites for HTTPS-Everywhere

Hope it helps.
