Description (last modified by mikeperry)


I think it will be a good idea to give my config for torbutton , like i have speak with Mike Perry a few ago, i told him my feedback about headers and a few infos send by torbutton, so i hope that's will help to improuve it :)

Well the first point are to add a new value in "about:config"( useful for firefox 3.5 while are not added )

This preference doesn't exist by default. You have to create a new value:

  • right click in your about:config
  • choose New-> Boolean
  • type network.dns.disablePrefetch , click Ok
  • choose true, click Ok
  • change the charset to : utf-8,*
  • change language to: en
  • change content types: */*
  • change cookie: add cs lite
  • change refer: add RefControl

for that need change:

intl.accept_languages string en
intl.accept.charsets string *,utf-8
intl.charset-default string empty
network.http.accept.default string */*
network.dns.disablePrefetch bloéan true

edit refControl to send orgine of site visited ( that's a addon firefox )

cs Lite are a add-on mozilla too and secure, it's important to install it and set it to refuse all cookies basicly and only accept for session or totaly if trusted.
the advantage are to never give traces when we browse the web long time.

With this configuration, that's will fix all problem about the actual headers and garenteed a maximum anonymity.

well about the tweak in tor wiki and firefox performance, i think can be added in torbutton in same time.

maybe cs lite can just add in wiki about tips.

another good point will to edit firefox to start auto in private browsing mode while actually torbutton save history of site. but this feature are only avaible in firefox 3.5

Another source to look at in terms of header normalization is JonDoFox. They put a lot of effort into this, and have test suites for it.

It looks like we've done most of these in TBB.

Any remaining config changes need to have a justification as to why a change in each one satisfies a design requirement from

If multiple variables satisfy the same requirement, you can group them in the same ticket.
