comment Windows 10 privacy concerns for other accounts on same computer
@schroeder Yes. But not in the malware-sense. I mean, is it officially sending data about the "computer" or only about that account.

comment Prevent brute force attacks on web publishing logins
@BadSkillz Thanks. By FTP I meant - over SSL. If not - the password is easily compromised of course.

@Jeroen-ITNerdbox Thanks. (I assume you meant to post that as a comment to my question.)

comment Prevent brute force attacks on web publishing logins
Thanks. But perhaps I wasn't clear enough in my question. I'm asking about using a shared web-hosting service and therefore have limited control over their server's setup.

comment Does an HTTPS proxy encrypt traffic between proxy client and server for HTTP requests?
+1 for a clear answer. Though, one point: When using an HTTPS proxy (not SOCKS) will the browser do the DNS lookup through its ISP, or will it delegate that to the proxy? If it does it through the ISP then if the goal of the attackers is to guess the identity of the sites that you are talking to - even an HTTPS proxy won't help.

comment Does a TLS-connection to a proxy-server encrypt the destination url's?
@SteffenUllrich a) Thanks. b) According to this answer it does. (See "Supported in FF 33+" on that answer.) (I haven't used a proxy yet. This is a preliminary question.) c) If you don't add the @ispiro before your comment, I don't get notified of it.

I've edited the question to make it clear that I'm asking about a case where the connection to the proxy is secure.

It looks like you're answering about a regular TLS connection. That's not my question. I'm asking about when browsing is done through a proxy-server.

ISP at least would know the target IP address, because this is needed to route your data to the target - I don't understand. Are you referring to the proxy's IP? If not - why would the ISP need to know the IP?

Thanks for the link. That's very interesting reading.

comment How safe are encrypted files error-wise?
Thanks. Modern computing hardware is so robust ... - Any statistics on this? (1 bit in 100GB might break a disk image.)

comment Add certificate authority to one browser only
I've now found this answer on this site saying that Firefox does indeed have a separate list. That implies that it would be fine if installing on Firefox. (As mentioned in an answer here.) I would, still, prefer a confirmation that FF won't add it to the computer's list, if such a source exists.

@munkeyoto Thanks. But what's mentioned there seems to be exactly what I'm trying to avoid. - from that page: Install Your Client Root Certificate Authority on the ... Machines

comment When downloading from an https web page - will the download also use ssl?
If it's a trial software then forget it, who cares. - What do you mean? What if someone replaces it with a virus infected version in transit?

Thanks again. To anyone looking here - In Firefox - I found that in the download manager - right click on the download manager, and "copy download link".

comment When downloading from an https web page - will the download also use ssl?
+1. Thank you very much. So from your answer I understand that if there's a hash known, or if the file is signed - we have a solution. If not - we're out of luck. Correct?

comment How does Network Discovery OFF protect my computer?
You're right. That's actually what I was trying to ask. Edited now. In fact - I was trying to find out what exactly does this setting do under the hood but have come up empty handed so far.

OK. I see you edited your comment. You can ignore my comment about redundancy.
