The proposal here would be to further develop the protections dashboard allowing:
1 - Showing statistics of other privacy add-ons. For example, allowing an extension like uBlock Origin to populate the number of trackers blocked, cookies, etc. That would really show how hardened and safe Firefox is, even with third-party add-ons.
2 - Show tips and tricks about security and how to stay safe online. This could go from simple paragraphs to links to Youtube videos from Firefox.
3 - Privacy/protection add-ons suggestion section.
Thanks for submitting an idea to the Mozilla Connect community! Your idea is now open to votes (aka kudos) and comments.
This is an interesting idea @Pedro! I think it would be great to make a unified dashboard for privacy protections and then to make recommendations to change Firefox settings and add-ons to improve security.
@Tony-Cinotto might be interested in this as he hosted a discussion around privacy and security a few months ago. How do you talk about Privacy & Security?
What would also be interesting to have are the websites from which the tacking content, the fingerprinters, the social media trackers and the cryptominers were blocked by Firefox's Enhanced Tracking Protection. We could thus know which sites should be avoided due to bad privacy practices and it would help us look for alternatives.
1. Firefox use the disconnect list and it have a category about the content they blocked.However most adblock that use their own blocklist or 3rd party blocklists which don't do the same thing. Counting how many connection is blocked is also not a reliable way.
2.Look at this blog.
3.They are already here.The Recommended Extensions program , Privacy & Security tag and also this blog , they are already the thing you want.
Hi @tlzyiqleu, thank you for your reply. The purpose of the idea is to include this in the dashboard, of course it is available in other ways, but having one centralized place would be better, especially for non-tech people.
Awesome! Really love this idea! I truly believe there is a lot more we can do with the protections dashboard and sharing privacy benefits and education.
