    It's a good thing, but if I was using the built in password manager I'd rather have the master password tied to the mozilla account. In any case it's a non-issue for people using LastPass and other standalone managers.

    BTW, I've read that Firefox 75 protects against first-party tracking, but I don't believe it does it the same way that uBlock does. Basically it will monitor tracking cookies and if there has been no interaction with these sites in 30 days, it will delete them. It doesn't sound that advanced to me. :doubt:

    wat0114 may I ask you how to enable the "There is also a kernel-based enforcement I'm using in Linux that restricts these extensions to do only exactly what they're supposed to do, and nothing else, so there is a certain peace of mind in that too. Is it something like DEP or EMET in Windows?

    Thanks, SA

    Sure, I use Apparmor in latest Debian. It's not for the faint of heart, especially if using highly granular rules. Programs can easily break if too much enforcement is applied. The idea, really, is to find a balance between solid security without sacrificing usability.

    I've heard of Apparmor but if its not enforced automatically by the Operating System (using Kubuntu 19.10) I really wouldn't know how to set it up. I guess you could say I'm still in the learning phase of linux. These commands are all I know to try to maintain Kubuntu - sudo apt update -y && sudo apt full-upgrade -y && sudo apt autoremove -y && sudo apt clean -y && sudo apt autoclean -y

    sudo fstrim -v /

    Can I just search Apparmor in the start menu?

    Sorry moderators I'm getting off topic and probably need to move my post elsewhere.
