    Some of those settings are old hat for me... but there were a few new tips in there, as well.
    Good find!

    lol, i didn't even notice

    Firedox sounds like an enticing piece of software actually. It makes me think of a desktop environment with a dock like OSX, DOS and the Firefox web browser.

    I've tried the noscript extension countless times and can never stick with it for more than a few days but do plan to try it again, so maybe it will appeal to me sooner or later. I'm already doing most of the other recommendations and then some.

    I disike the ' Overbearingness " of the Firefox and Opers browsers on my computer. Firefox comes as a standard and I
    only use it for certain websites and never for email!! I mainly use Seamonkey and once in a while Konqueror. I use Galeon
    for my main website and Epiphany for Staten Island's local paper that is just teeming with ads. I guess it must be part of
    human nature for software developers to develop a " herding attitude " when their product gets widely used and they want
    to herd everyone into doing everything their way!!
