This is where Edge stores HTTP Basic authentication details, *not* in the browser's own saved logins manager.

Firefox expands anti-tracking features with browser fingerprint blocking - The Verge
Firefox is testing a new anti-tracking feature that will prevent sites from being able to "fingerprint" your browser and track you. The browser will also now explicitly block cryptocurrency mining scripts.

Is saving passwords in Chrome as safe as using LastPass if you leave it signed in? - Information Security Stack Exchange - https://security.stackexchange.com/
The feature we've been talking about helps users. That other one was a misguided attempt at being useful by filling in forms using things you typed on other websites. So imagine an autocomplete assistant like Clippy, but with worse social skills: "I see you're trying to log in to Ebay; I'll just fill in your login from Yahoo and we can see if that works." Yeah, we had funny ideas about security back in the 90's. You can see why putting autocomplete=off into everything even remotely security-related quickly became a bullet-point in site audits.

how to display local shell-script/s in browser/firefox? - Unix & Linux Stack Exchange | https://unix.stackexchange.com/
The way data is processed in a browser depends on the MIME type declared by the server. If you want your browser to render it as html, which is most likely a terrible idea, you can change the Content-Type header the server returns so that it reflects the type of your data, which would be text/html; charset=utf-8, and the Content-Disposition header to suggest the browser what to do.

My solution was the following (in a '.htaccess'):
<code class="language-apache">
<Files *.sh>
SetEnvIf Request_URI "([^/]+\.sh)" FileName=$1

# ref: https://unix.stackexchange.com/a/364433
Header set Content-Type "text/plain"

# not needed, and doesn't work alone, since the browser is configured to
# download "application/sh" rather than display it inline; just telling the
# browser it's "text/plain" is enough to achieve the aim
#Header set Content-Disposition "inline; filename=\"%{FileName}e\""
</Files>
</code>

Firefox 3 and Self-Signed Certs | https://www.gerv.net/
Leaving aside the fact that many people who use this model for SSH don't bother to do 1) in practice but just say "OK" and hope, it is our assertion that no-one has yet come up with a UI that makes this model of crypto (known as Key Continuity Management - KCM - or "the SSH model") understandable to Joe Public. You can't provide him with a string of hex characters and expect it to read it over the phone to his bank. What he does instead is just click "OK", which might as well be labelled "Yeah, Whatever", and hopes for the best. The same thing happens when he gets "key changed!" warnings, even scary ones.

The first important thing to note about this model is that key changes are an expected part of life. No-one does or should use the same key for ever, and key compromise or discovered weakness means that keys change. So the user is going to get a series of alerts over time, some of which indicate an OK condition, and some of which indicate a dangerous condition. It is our assertion that no UI can navigate Joe through this complexity in a safe way.

Usability research tells us that repeated security dialogs and warnings habituate users into just clicking "OK" - it's the "Yeah, Whatever" thing again. If that dialog mostly indicates a benign condition but occasionally indicates a serious one, then the problem is compounded. This happens no matter what the dialog says. UI designers can work on the wording for a year, but whatever it is, it'll eventually just get ignored.


Also:
However, running your own CA has its own hidden costs - and you normally discover them after a key compromise when you have to update all the certificates at once, and everyone has to learn a lot about crypto really quickly. A simpler solution is just to get in touch with StartCom, or budget for a few expenditures of $14.95 or whatever, and use the same public CA system everyone else does.

It's All Text! :: Add-ons for Firefox
On Linux, you'll need this somewhere:
#!/bin/bash
set -eu
exec /usr/bin/gvim --nofork "$@"

On a Mac, just make '/usr/bin/gvim' into '/usr/local/bin/mvim' instead, assuming that you have MacVim installed, and that's where you put the command-line binary.

Choose that as your editor in the preferences (good luck trying to select it from the file picker; better to copy and paste the full pathname into the text box).
No longer works as of Firefox 57 IAT will ...

Chromium 34 and later cannot detect flash plugin - Ask Ubuntu - http://askubuntu.com/
Ubuntu 12.04 (Precise) and newer

If you don't have Trusty, you can use this PPA to install Pepper Flash for any supported Ubuntu version above Precise. Run the following commands to add the PPA and install Pepper Flash:

sudo apt-add-repository ppa:skunk/pepper-flash
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install pepflashplugin-installer

Note that you need to configure Chromium to use Pepper Flash. To do this, open /etc/chromium-browser/default and add the following line to the end of the file on a new line:

. /usr/lib/pepflashplugin-installer/pepflashplayer.sh

Close all windows and re-open.
