"Governments have printed unimaginable amounts of money, inflating the money supply, since 2008. A bank in Denmark just offered the first negative-yield mortgage. Another recession is inevitable. What will we do this time?"
Techposting; recommended Firefox add-ons for security (updated recommendations)
NoScript Security Suite: blocks content loaded from other domains
uBlock Origin: blocks ads
Privacy Badger: detects and fights attempts are cross-site user tracking
TrackMeNot: sends garbage data to various search engines known to track users to mask your real searches
HTTPS Everywhere: uses SSL/TLS by default with sites known to support it
Decentraleyes: it replaces Google tracker-laden scripts with compatible, trackerless local versions
Privacy Settings: allows access to various privacy settings without needing to dive into about:config
P.S. Instead of NoScript, you may wish to use uMatrix. The two are functionally similar, but some users prefer the interface of uMatrix and also the fact that uMatrix allows you to allow and disallow content of different types from different domains, exclusively on the current domain.
I replaced a recommendation to use an extension called AdNauseam with TrackMeNot because AdNauseam is not compatible with popular ad blockers. TrackMeNot is similar in sending garbage data to mask your legitimate information, but doesn’t rely on loading ad trackers to do so.

#GitHub is blocking users based on national origin, citing US trade controls law restrictions....
People from #Iran, #Syria, #Crimea, #Cuba, and North Korea woke up one day to lose access to all their public and private repositories. There's reporting that even people *who traveled* to any of those countries in the last 2 years are losing their data...
And #GitHub has not said ONE WORD ABOUT IT.
Yay! 🎉 We've developed an encrypted calendar in less than 2 months. 😃😍You can already check out the beta:
Am I the only one who starts to hate #Wordpress?
