I have been hacked several times by inserting www.domain.com into the list of scripts and cookies. This is different than domain.com which is legitimate. I have been able to bypass it with Ublock rules as to what domain * can originate from. With all rules being exact wording with no wild symbols, I am able to block domain starting with www.

All the sites are https and are considered secure by the browser.

This problem is not unique to Firefox. I just have better control over it in Firefox. Chrome and its variants fall for the same thing.

Even with this being a targeted attack on me, it is still a glaring security issue for browsers.

I am hoping that this post gets seen by somebody who can do something about this security issue. I am not expecting an immediate fix for me. At least I know to look for it.

Any upcoming privacy projects to combat machine learning data leakage or malicious cloud data attacks?

What is Firefox doing to harden/strength/guard/ privacy .... or "preemptively" protect consumer or public citizens from data mining or machine learning capabilities that are being performed by Government or private Business class entities outside of the public citizen sector?

More importantly when this technology potentially crosses into the pubic multiverse from a private or Government sector, is Firefox doing anything now to strengthen our first line of defense against cloud data leakage or miss configured data mining technologies? This question is somewhat different than a TOR browser bug or vulnerability.

I am asking if there is any form of shielding or upcoming boost of added privacy protection above TOR configurations or SOCK type VPN's that will offer protection against misguided cloud data usage either maliciously, criminally or pure accident?

Since I have been trying out Firefox Preview more and more duplicate devices have been getting added to my sync and there are currently 9 of them. I have not found a way to remove these devices since they do not show up in the Firefox device management page. The way they seem to have been added is when I have been signed out of sync on Firefox Preview and I have had to sign back in.

Sites don't choose very good names for their pages. I have a number of bookmarks with train journeys and in Firefox i can rename them "a-b", "b-a", "a-c" etc. In firefox you cannot so if you have them in a collection you'd have 10 bookmarks all called "train journeys online" with no way of knowing which was which.
