I am using the Firefox browser on a Linux system and it came to my knowledge that it is possible for sites to take a fingerprint of the user visiting their homepages.
So I actually have four questions regarding the thread:
1) It was written in the article I read that it is even possible for them to learn my computer name, is that true?
2) The passwords I have stored in Firefox, are they also possible for them to get via fingerprinting techniques?
3) I just did a test on panopticlick and realized that my noscript addon seems to prevent a lot of fingerprinting on their site, how accurate is this test and are there more advanced fingerprinting tests on the web or is this really all that can get fingerprinted with modern techniqes?
4) Is there away to check if a site is using fingerprinting on me?
