Expanding user protections on the web using Firefox with pop-up blocker and redirection enhancement
User Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows NT 10.0; Win64; x64; rv:58.0) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/58.0 Build ID: 20171110005445 Steps to reproduce: Would be good to have something similar to what Chrome announced: https://blog.chromium.org/2017/11/expanding-user-protections-on-web.html test site: https://ndossougbe.github.io/web-sandbox/interventions/3p-redirect/ * Improve popup blocker * Preventing Redirection scripts
Component: Untriaged → Document Navigation
Product: Firefox → Core
Epiphany being a linux only Browser has a Native Blocker in it also
Not looking at block lists, more mitigation against redirects and popups (seems most ad servers have a work around the in-browser popup blocker)
Priority: -- → P3
Summary: Expanding user protections on the web using Firefox → Expanding user protections on the web using Firefox with pop-up blocker and redirection enhancement
CCed Wennie and Ethan to put this on their planning radar!
Just for reference, Chrome just added better protection for tab-unders, and strengthening the popup blocker; Detect and block tab-unders: https://bugs.chromium.org/p/chromium/issues/detail?id=661629 Sites with abusive experiences should get a stronger popup blocker: https://bugs.chromium.org/p/chromium/issues/detail?id=756089
