I kno most readers no longer use Firefox, but the value of this article for me is not so much a lict of (recommended) extensions you can add to Firefox to enhance security, but rather the overall shape of future browsing it points to. Or should point to - it is worth noting that a browser produced by an advertising company (ahem Chrome) is probably not going to have a lot of security built in. Otherwise, though, the sort of features described here - limits on scripts, blocking advertising, secure passwords, encryption everywhere, tracking disabled - are the sports of features people would prefer to have, had they a choice.
