Re: Torbutton 1.1.14-alpha released

nice additions, thankyou mike for doing such great work, I have an idea for you, maybe in the future you could implement a tor-control option like vidalia as an extention; with of course basic functionality like the " new identity" option to switch up the tor nodes.  Right now Firefox 3 compatibility will be my favorite addition :)

Torbutton 1.1.14-alpha has been released at

This release primarily features several mechanisms to mitigate browser
fingerprinting. This includes chrome/extension presence disclosure,
resolution information, Tor port probing, and user agent and locale
spoofing fixes.

Here is the complete ChangeLog for 1.1.14:

 * bugfix: set general.useragent.locale if user wants to spoof an English
   browser. This handles navigator.locale
 * bugfix: Mask navigator.buildID. Reported by Greg Fleischer
 * Initial Firefox 3 work. Functionality still broken due to FF Bug 413682
 * bug 580: Resize preferences window to fit in 640x480 displays
 * new: Spoof window.screen to mask desktop resolution and resize the
   browser to multiples of 50px while tor is enabled.
 * new: Block content window access to chrome urls if Tor is enabled,
   and hide Torbutton if Tor is disabled. Thanks to Greg Fleischer for
   reporting the chrome disclosure issues
 * new: Added option to close all opened tabs on a Tor toggle. Useful
   for general convenience and also as a backup protection against
   Bug 409737.
 * new: Add Tor ports to the list of banned ports for Firefox. Should
   prevent http-ping based fingerprinting attacks.
 * new: Finally add support for automatic updates.
