I mostly use the Tails browser, but I also use Firefox in Fedora with several add-ons such as TrackMeNot, HTTPS Everywhere, uBlock Origin, NoScript, and Fingerprint Detector.

I would like to obfuscate collection against myself when I use Firefox. I do not consider active attack, only passive.

CC Cleaner and AVG Internet Security are used to remove cookies.

What more can I do? I am not only talking about fingerprinting, which has been answered elsewhere. I want to obfuscate all possible data against collection of every sort, and surely someone on this venerable website can address my question.

    First of all, removing all cookies regularly in and of itself is a noticable thing. Secondly, what exactly is your threat model? Ad agencies? Facebook? The NSA? Third Echelon? – MechMK1 Feb 8 at 1:19
  • you can combine uBlock and NoScript into uMatrix, which is now (sadly) inactive - at its last iteration it was highly functional, and (most of) the lists it works off continue to be updated (a team may yet pick up the ongoing maintenance of this add-on) – brynk Feb 8 at 1:32
  • @MechMK1 I am not sure how to put it. I want to hinder commercial collection. – Patriot Feb 8 at 1:35
  • @Patriot Then using those addons already solves this pretty much. More paranoia won't yield better results. – MechMK1 Feb 8 at 1:37

    @brynk If you set up a VPN service at a hosting provider, you also have to trust that hosting provider and the hosting provider's ISP. It's turtles all the way down. – MechMK1 Feb 8 at 1:48
