use different browser (Pale Moon) for banking only. Firefox for everything else. Does this increase my security for online banking?
I've been using Firefox as my default browser for many years. I am recovering from a concussion a few years ago, which has affected my memory a lot. I'm not sure what changes in settings I've made over the years that might have affected my security for online banking. Therefore using a different browser for banking only seems like a secure solution. Ideas?
Additional System Details
- Shockwave Flash 32.0 r0
- User Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows NT 10.0; Win64; x64; rv:67.0) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/67.0
Additionally, I used to be sort of "Geekish" before the concussion, in spite of being a senior, but now feel like a "newbie" around computers all over again. :-(
It would be better to use Firefox for banking because Palemoon likely is less secure than the current Firefox release (its development lags behind the Firefox release). You can consider to use a separate profile for online banking to keep it separate from regular browsing and possibly with higher security settings.
Note that the current Firefox release is 68.0.1
