Firefox 41+ extension signing

In the never-ending quest for browser security, Firefox has started implementing safeguards to only allow signed extensions. I found this out after upgrading to Firefox 41 as my installed version of “Deque FireEyes” stopped working. Thankfully, there is a workaround in Firefox 41, but it goes away in Firefox 42.

  • Firefox 40: warning only!
  • Firefox 41: workaround, via:

    about:config:
    xpinstall.signatures.required = false
  • Firefox 42: BLOCKED! unless signed

Ashley Madison data dump

This topic has been in the media ALOT lately, for the less technical individuals here’s a simple way to get at the information.

For (mostly) anonymous access to the ‘dark internet’…. it’s not as ominous and illegal as you might think, you can download a browser here:

If you don’t mind being (possibly) tracked by your IP Address, you can just download a Torrent client such as Transmission or ĀµTorrent.

The torrent file can then be accessed here:
