Setting up Mac OS firewall to maximize Firefox security — which options are best?
I'm setting up my Mac OS firewall, the most current version, to maximize my Firefox security.
I've enabled Stealth Mode and Automatic Updates with certifications.
But I'm wondering about what other stuff to block. I don't want to cripple myself with stuff like automatic updates to software, etc., but I don't want to leave a backdoor for anyone to come snooping around either.
Or should I get some other firewall software that gives me more control?

HI WonderingAboutStuff, There are collections by Mozilla that have recommended privacy addons, for example: https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/fire.../privacy/
Lightbeam will give you an idea of what server connections are active to see any backdoor connections. In regards to snooping around, stealth mode sounds like it will remove all history and cookies.
