Batu69 posted a topic in Security & Privacy NewsAll modern web browsers leak extension information to sites if the sites run scripts to pull the information. We talked about the findings of a research term that published its findings recently in a paper. Unless scripts are blocked, sites may run scripts that check the response time of the browser as it is different when checks are made for fake extensions and fake resources, and existing extensions and fake resources. Firefox's situation is special, as it supports the legacy add-on system and the new WebExtensions system. The researcher tested the browser's legacy add-on system only, but suggested that Firefox's new system would also be vulnerable. An anonymous reader pointed out that Firefox's WebExtensions system uses random IDs, and that this meant that the method to enumerate extensions would not work in that case (unlike in Chrome and other Chromium based browsers). While that is correct, Mozilla's implementation introduces a new issue that allows sites to identify users if WebExtensions expose content to sites as the random IDs are permanent. "... in particular, they [Mozilla] changed the initial scheme (moz-extension://[extID]/[path]) to moz-extension://[random-UUID]/[path]. Unfortunately, while this change makes indeed more difficult to enumerate user extensions, it introduces a far more dangerous problem. In fact, the random-UUID token can now be used to precisely fingerprint users if it is leaked by an extensions. A website can retrieve this UUID and use it to uniquely identify the user, as once it is generated the random ID never changes. We reported this design-related bug to Firefox developers as well." If a site manages to get hold of the ID, it may track the Firefox installation as that ID never changes. This is not just theoretical either; Earthling, one of the maintainers of the Ghacks Firefox user.js file, has created a proof of concept that highlights a leak in Firefox's native Screenshot tool. While this particular example requires that users click on the screenshot button in the Firefox interface to make the unique ID available to the site, other extensions may expose content without user interaction. Apple's Safari uses a random UUID system as well, and the researchers discovered that they could enumerate about 40% of all extensions as its implementation is flawed. If the WebExtension exposes content to sites because they have implementation flaws, sites may fingerprint users based on the unique ID that gets exposed in the process. Closing Words Mozilla needs to rework the implementation to protect users of the browser from this. Even if you don't use WebExtensions at all, you may be vulnerable to this as Firefox ships with several system add-ons that may expose the ID to sites. (Thanks Pants and Earthling) Article source
The following guide lists all options that you have to continue running so-called legacy add-ons when Firefox 57 is released in November. Mozilla plans to disable the legacy add-on system in Firefox 57 Stable. This means that any extension for Firefox that is not a WebExtension, the new format that Mozilla focuses on, will stop working in Firefox 57. Many add-ons that are available for Firefox right now will stop working. New extensions are created, but it is fair to say that WebExtensions will never be as powerful as Firefox's legacy add-on system. We made a rough analysis of the situation in July; it is improving, but there are still plenty of legacy add-ons out there that are not available as WebExtensions yet. Some add-on authors may be working on a port, some may wait for APIs to become available, and some have announced already that they won't port their extensions (usually because it is not possible, and won't be possible). Firefox users who rely on specific legacy add-ons have a couple of options to retain their functionality. The following options are available: Switch to Firefox ESR (until June 26, 2018) Firefox ESR, Extended Support Release, will support legacy add-ons until June 26, 2018. This special version of Firefox is maintained specifically for organizations that require more stability and less change when it comes to software. Firefox ESR gets all the security updates that Firefox Stable gets, but none of the functionality changes. The current version of Firefox ESR, 52.x, is based on Firefox 52.0. This means that it won't incorporate any changes made in Firefox 53, 57 or even 60. It is no longer supported after the release of Firefox ESR 52.8.0 which is released next to Firefox 60. Switch to Firefox Nightly (unknown) While Firefox Release and Beta versions won't support legacy extensions anymore when Firefox 57 hits the channel, the same cannot be said for Firefox Nightly. Read also: Firefox Test Pilot: Page Shot, Min Vid and Tracking Protection Mozilla plans to ship Firefox Nightly with a preference to enable support for legacy add-ons. This sounds good at first glance, but changes in the browser's core will render add-ons non-functional in Firefox 57. Jorge Villalobos, product manager for addons.mozilla.org, confirms as much on the official Mozilla blog: Starting with 57, many things will break that will also break add-ons. Most add-ons that aren’t WebExtensions will be broken regardless. Compatibility issues will grow over time when further changes are made to the Firefox web browser. While some add-ons will continue to work at least for a while, it is unclear for how long, and for how long Mozilla plans to keep the preference in Nightly to keep on using legacy add-ons. Block further updates (unlimited, but insecure) Another option that Firefox users have is to block any updates to the browser so that Firefox won't get updated to version 57. While that removes the time limit for using any legacy add-on that still works in Firefox 56, it means as well that Firefox won't get updated anymore with security updates. This makes it a non-option for most use cases. Firefox users who want to disable automatic updates need to load about:preferences#advanced, switch to the advanced tab there, and select "never check for updates". Note that Mozilla changes the preferences layout. Pale Moon (not all add-ons are compatible) Pale Moon, which shares a lot of code with Firefox, may be an option of the add-ons that you want to use work in the browser. Not all Firefox add-ons are compatible with Pale Moon on the other hand, so you best verify this before you migrate to the browser. Ghacks.net
Mozilla Firefox 55.0 has been released by Mozilla. The official release date of Firefox 55.0 is August 8, 2017. The new version of the web browser is already available, and will be offered on August 8 to existing users of the web browser provided that they have turned updates on. Firefox 55.0 breaks compatibility with older versions of the browser and Firefox ESR. Users who want to downgrade are advised to back up their profiles prior to installing the update. Firefox Beta, Nightly and ESR versions are also updated on the day. Firefox Beta is moved to Firefox 56.0, Firefox Nightly to Firefox 57.0, and Firefox ESR to 52.3. Executive Summary You cannot restore an older version / migrate to Firefox ESR after the upgrade to Firefox 55. Firefox 55.0 is the first version of Firefox that moves directly from Nightly to Beta. The new WebExtensions permissions systems is enabled. Firefox 55.0 download and update Direct download links for Firefox installation files: Firefox Stable download Firefox Beta download Nightly download Firefox ESR download Firefox unbranded builds information Firefox 55.0 Changes WebExtensions Permissions system is live Firefox 55 ships with a permissions system for WebExtensions. These are displayed to the user during installation of a WebExtension in the web browser, and during updates if new permissions are requested. A dialog is displayed to the user whenever a WebExtension is installed that requires permissions, and when a WebExtension is updated that requires new permissions. Firefox lists the requested permissions, e.g. access browser tabs, and users may continue with the installation or update by selecting "add" or "update", or cancel the process. Adobe Flash plugin restrictions Mozilla set the Adobe Flash plugin to click-to-play by default, and decided to restrict Flash to http and https pages. Mozilla notes that the change is rolled out gradually, and may not be visible immediately to all users. 5% of users two weeks after release. 25% of users a month after release. 100% of users six weeks after release. Search suggestions enabled by default Search suggestions, those displayed in the Firefox address bar when a user starts to type, are now enabled for all users except those who have opted out. Firefox users can manage search engines and suggestions by loading about:preferences#search in the browser's address bar. Users who don't want or require search suggestions can turn them off by removing the checkmark from "provide search suggestions" and "show search suggestions in location bar results". New "Performance" section in Settings Firefox 55 ships with a new performance section in Settings. Firefox users may select to run the browser with the recommended performance settings, or customize the following performance-related options: Toggle hardware acceleration. Set a content process limits for multi-process functionality. Page Shot screenshot functionality Firefox 55 users may notice a new screenshots icon in the Firefox main toolbar. This icon is not visible to all users at release, as Mozilla wants to run an A/B test first. Those Firefox users who have it in their browser already may use it to capture a region of the web browser, or a page, and save it locally or online on https://screenshots.firefox.com/. Other Firefox 55.0 changes Added Belorussian locale Assign custom shortcuts to Firefox on Mac OS X via System Preferences > Keyboard > Shortcuts. Firefox 55 marks the beginning of theme support. The browser.theme.update API is available which features similar capabilities as Firefox lightweight themes. Geolocation API requires secure origin. Same is true for Storage API. Loading of mixed content allowed on localhost. Print preview feature to simplify print jobs. Remote jar files are not loaded by default anymore. Mozilla disabled support for the jar: protocol back in Firefox 45, but had to re-enable it because it broke IBM iNotes functionality. Firefox 55 disables jar: again as IBM updated iNotes so that it no longer requires remote jars. Firefox users who require the functionality may switch network.jar.block-remote-files to false to restore it. (Bug 1329336) Sidebar can be moved to the right. Support for WebVR. WebExtensions performance improvements, e.g. host matching, lazy loading APIs and more. Windows Stub installer simplified, option to select installation directory or program shortcuts removed. Firefox users need to use the full installer for these options. Developer Changes about:debugging page changes. Temporary add-ons are listed at the top, a remove button is now available, and help is shown if an extension has a temporary ID. Extensions may disable WebRTC. Network Monitor: show hide columns, remote IP, protocol, scheme, cookies and set cookies columns, filtering of network requests by column values and other properties, and regular expressions. New APIs: Collaborative Scheduling of Background Tasks API, WebVR 1.1 API, Intersection Observer API. Proxy API to insert proxy configuration files into Firefox. runtime.onMessageExternal API implemented to allow communication between WebExtensions add-ons. Support for EME on insecure contexts deprecated. webRequest API improvements, e.g. declining requests before cookies are processed. Firefox 55.0 for Android The following features are new or changed on Android (apart from those that were mentioned already for Firefox for the desktop): Option to zoom with one hand using double tap and drag gestures. Greek and Lao locales added. Accessibility settings have an option to respect the system's font size when displaying web pages. Security updates / fixes Security changes are announced after the official release. We will update the review when Mozilla publishes them.
