So it seems like Firefox 67 will implement a new "Feature" to "Protect users from running old versions of Firefox". Nice try Mozilla.
~15% of Firefox users are sticking with version 56 or earlier.
By the nature of its design Coldfox should natively stop 67 from interfering with your old install but I will check this before release. Firefox 67 is due out on the 14th and I expect to have Coldfox 67 out by the 16th. Not that there will be significantly more features and from the looks of it most people will be fine sticking with 66 until 68 comes out.
Add-on signing no longer required
I have altered the .7z download so that unsigned add-ons can be installed.
The .zip version remains the same and still requires add-ons to be signed.
Choose whichever you prefer
I mention privacy and security as the benefits of Coldfox, but the inspiration behind it was choice. Starting a decade ago the trend of Mozilla has been to remove user choice. It's still vastly better than the chromium based browsers which never gave the user much choice to begin with, but it is that trend which will lead to the demise of firefox as a browser. Its current userbase trajectory gives it about 2 years to turn things around.
The first new privacy invasion method introduced since the launch of Coldfox is on the horizon: HTML pings.
If the setting is removed I will default block pings via a preinstalled extension such as UBlockOrigin or NoScript.
Whatever method has to be used, Coldfox will block default ping sending.
They take the first $0.30 in processing fees so less than this is just enriching the middlemen.
