Re: Tor Browser Bundle for Mac OS X released


Thanks for providing a Browser Bundle for Mac OS X!

Extension Security is not enabled by default in the Bundle. I suggest it beeing turned on by default.

I would like to suggest for discussion to include the following Firefox extensions:

SSL Blacklist:
Checks for SSL Certificates with weak keys and MD5 signed certificates.
IIRC this is DNS based which is likely to be very slow due to high DNS latency with tor.

Only loads Flash content after user interaction, or from whitelist.
(I am aware that Torbutton should deactivate all Plug-Ins including Flash.)

Certificate Patrol:
Alerts the user when sites present a new/unknown SSL certificate.

Best regards
