MOZILLA MANIPULATES THE EU ELECTIONS
Scared of online nazis corrupting your complacency goy? We got you covered!

web.archive.org/web/20190506133654/https://blog.mozilla.org/blog/2019/05/05/eu-elections-2019/

What comes to your mind when you hear the term ‘online manipulation’? In the run-up to the EU parliamentary elections at the end of May, you probably think first and foremost of disinformation. But what about technical ways to manipulate voters on the internet? Although they are becoming more and more popular because they are so difficult to recognize and therefore particularly successful, they probably don’t come to mind first. Quite simply because they have not received much public attention so far. Firefox tackles this issue today: The ‘Firefox EU Election Toolkit’ not only provides important background knowledge and tips – designed to be easily understood by non-techies – but also tools to enable independent online research and decision-making.
Manipulation on the web: ‘fake news’ isn’t the main issue (anymore)
Few other topics have been so present in public perception in recent years, so comprehensively discussed in everyday life, news and science, and yet have been demystified as little as disinformation. Also commonly referred to as ‘fake news’, it’s defined as “deliberate disinformation or hoaxes spread via traditional print and broadcast news media or online social media.” Right now, so shortly before the next big elections at the end of May, the topic seems to be bubbling up once more: According to the European Commission’s Eurobarometer, 73 percent of Internet users in Europe are concerned about disinformation in the run-up to the EU parliamentary elections.
However, research also proves: The public debate about disinformation takes place in great detail, which significantly increases awareness of the ‘threat’. The fact that more and more initiatives against disinformation and fact-checking actors have been sprouting up for some time now – and that governments are getting involved, too – may be related to the zeitgeist or connected to individuals’ impression that they are constantly confronted with ‘fake news’ and cannot protect themselves on their own.
It’s important to take action against disinformation. Also, users who research the elections and potential candidates on the Internet, for example, should definitely stay critical and cautious. After all, clumsy disinformation campaigns are still taking place, revealing some of the downsides of a global, always available Internet; and they even come with a wide reach and rapid dissemination. Countless actors, including journalists, scientists and other experts now agree that the impact of disinformation is extremely limited and traditional news is still the primary and reliable source of information. This does not, however, mean that the risk of manipulation has gone away; in fact, we must make sure to stay alert and not close our eyes to new, equally problematic forms of manipulation, which have just been less present in the media and science so far. At Firefox we understand that this may require some support – and we’re happy to provide it today.
Firefox is committed to an open and free Internet that provides access to independent information to everyone. That’s why we’ve created the ‘Firefox EU Elections Toolkit’:
Among other things, the toolkit contains:
selected information about the EU elections as well as the EU as an institution – only using trustworthy sources.
browser extensions, checked on and recommended by Firefox, that support independent research and opinion making.

The Firefox EU Elections Toolkit helps you to prevent pre-vote online manipulation

Ok, what fucking browser is left? It's basically chrome or firefox now. There's some browsers based on really old firefox code, and most of the others are chrome based.

Vivaldi - chrome
Brave - chrome
Waterfox - old firefox
Pale Mood - old firefox
MS Edge - chrome coming soon
Firefox - gay trannies
Chrome - google borg software
Midori - didn't work well last I checked
Opera - wtf is opera these days, chrome?

Is there anything else? Is there any good fashy browser?

Auto-updates that can be turned off only by hacky workarounds. Google as default search engine. Analytics on Brave's home page. Two other requests made at each start of Brave. Whitelisting spyware from Facebook and Twitter.[5] Has some decent privacy protections built in, but uMatrix is still better. Some privacy features are there by default, but, it's still trying to work with advertisers (same as Mozilla did with their Sponsored Tiles). Despite claiming to be "A browser with your interests at heart."[1], it has Google as default search engine, as well as shitty forced updates. Anyway, despite the privacy protections, you should stay away from this browser - it seems to have a "mission" to switch the internet to its version of "user-respecting" ads, (we know how that turned out for Mozilla), and that's slimy and suspicious. Beyond that it has repeatedly shown itself to be dishonest and disingenuous about what it's mission and goals and operations are.

palemoon and waterfox are both fine
I've heard of iceweasel but never used it
nu-firefox is pozzed cancer
what you want is a browser that supports anonymity and adblocker addons, those addons were actually the reason mozilla was hijacked by SJWs and its founder chased out in the first place
on palemoon you can use classic addons archive to get all the old noscript, uBlock origin, requestpolicy and forced https which were all broken by a (((certain))) firefox update
there are also guides out there on what about:config options to use to enhance anonymity

I'm on Chrome, but will use Brave as soon as they have stable sync.

Surely possible. Back in my teens I knew this kid who had a website on constant refresh so that it would load ads and he would make money of it. Dunno if you want to spend any time and energy trolling Google, because everything you give attention to, grows.

I don't know if we can get much better than that nowadays.

I remember I used Iridium, which is Chromium with a lot of tracking removed, but it's slow releases left security problems pile up.

inox-patchset and ungoogled-chromium broke too much stuff and I don't have time to fix every single page I visit. They could be a good option if you don't care about it.

Jose Moore

I don't trust these either though. I don't trust IceCat and Pale Moon and others to be kept secure and free from SJW subversion. There aren't enough eyes on these projects.

Ignoring all issues mentioned above, Brave is free and open-source under the MPL. It was created by the creator of Javascript and founder of Mozilla, Brendan Eich, who was fired from Mozilla for being a conservative.

Waterfox's lead dev is too much of a bro to allow subversion, pale moon's is too full of himself to allow it, and both projects are too small imo for the tranny coc faggots to come after. Bonus points to pale moon for being a fork of old school firefox

Elijah Johnson

Brave went fully Chromium last year and is free and open source. The token stuff doesn't interest me, just that it's secure, fast, and supports Chrome Web Store/Extensions and that more eyes are on it given Eich's prominence.

Angel Johnson

OK, I went through all this link, and it makes Brave seem a lot worse than it actually is:
Google as default search engine
Optional
Makes two requests on every startup.
Connects to BAT, and Brave being the BAT browser is not a secret; and to HTTPS Everywhere servers to download updated lists.
Whitelisting spyware Javascript from Facebook and Twitter
Brave claims TW/FB can't track you because of the cookies, but I have to agree on this one. I hope this will be fixed.

TL;DR: some of the points raised in that page are valid, others are just paranoia. "Brave is actively working against its users while lying to them about supposed privacy protections that it offers". Nah, that is too much.

Waterfox
I don't want to discredit anything if it's an actual good developer in the browser market, but I have to place my trust somewhere. It's too much to ask for it to be Waterfox as it currently stands. Some of the issues ( github.com/MrAlex94/Waterfox/issues ) aren't a good sign. Hopefully you are right and it stays on a good path.

This is an old one in my list, inspired by Opera 12 and uses Webkit. Pretty interesting too:

fifth-browser.sourceforge.net/
Fifth is a browser done right.
* Why would you use it instead of foo?
* Chuck Norris approves
* Supreme Leader approves
* Because you like it
Why would you like it?
* No nonsense
* No pulling the UI from under you
* Full control
* No hiding configurability
* You prefer reading over talking head videos

Maybe get an older non-kiked version of Waterfox, where you can install your backed add-ons into? Then turn off all auto-updates and null all the third party bullshit from about:config ???

Seems like this worked well for me. Remove WebGL and WebRTC too, and any third party url inside about:config including nullifying telemetry services and such. That way, they can't fuck with your browser remotely or obtain data from it. Use something like Noscript Security Suite too, and block global scripts. Only whitelist the sites you actually need to permit, or just temporarily allow them access, then block them when your done with them.

Older firefox still works good, but you MUST take steps to fortify it (including a lot of about:config tweaking and disabling auto-updates) BEFORE using it on a day to day basis. Store a compressed backup of the /.mozilla/ directory too, so if they manage to fuck it up somehow, you can erase the directory and replace it with the older one you have backed up.

Brave is decent, I've tried it. However, not enough privacy features (I'd really want Noscript with it to be honest), and I have checked its directory before and it DOES store lots of unnecessary sqlite data (just like Firefox does). You can manually remove the data with stuff like Bleachbit, but be careful not to delete anything thats needed in the build.

Nicholas Ward
Nicholas Ward

To be honest, Brave would be perfect if you could install some decent security add-ons like Noscript, HTTPS Everywhere and some kind of browser agent spoofer. I'd like to see something similar to about:config with Brave as well, so that users can modify EXACTLY what that browser does / how it runs / what kind of data it shares too. Disabling WebGL and WebRTC is a must for privacy, no matter what browser you use today!

Josiah King
Josiah King

WHAT?
I know that Google had some shares in Mozilla had some point but sold them or something, but this claim of implanted spying is downright terrible. Evidence would be appreciated.

LOL, that's not even high tech privacy violation, just basic security options that are not even available.

what you want is a browser that supports anonymity and adblocker addons, those addons were actually the reason mozilla was hijacked by SJWs and its founder chased out in the first place
on palemoon you can use classic addons archive to get all the old noscript, uBlock origin, requestpolicy and forced https which were all broken by a (((certain))) firefox update

The internet is turning into shit but you don't have to put up with it, and you don't need to be a very tech savvy haxxor to get around it. Just stick with an older OS you are most comfortable with and in control of, an older web browser (and learn some tweaks so you can disable/null all the unnecessary BS, use privacy add-ons and disable auto-updates so they can't corrupt your browsing experience), make sure you have backups of all needed software & media, don't leave your internet connected 24/7 (thats how you really get hacked easily), use Tor and/or a private VPN service outside the 5 eyes and contribute to decentralized p2p/bt file sharing networks too.

If you deny all their BS being thrown our way, you will continue to have a decent browsing experience. Might also want to consider using TWO computers instead of one as well, one for legit personal use and the other for piracy/shitposting/controversial activities. Just keep those computers on a separate internet connection, or at least a different VPN for their connections.

And nobody actually gives a shit about the EU elections fyi. It always has a low amount of people turning up. Google and facebook by the way, which are American companies have the most influence to manipulate. Google is a proven manipulator in their censoring and facebook as well. Same for twitter. If EU is so concerned about the privacy of its citizens they should ban these 3 from the Eurozone as a whole, they add nothing and can be easily replicated by European alternatives. The only reason those 3 are big is because everyone uses it not because they are so amazing.

I'm not really concerned about disinformation because it's a given every big media shits out propaganda and disinformation. If you're just slightly more educated and curious you find the manipulation everywhere. Traditional news is the primary source of information for citizens, because citizens are choosing to be serfs and retards. They have a choice: their choice is I'm going to play the role of worthless submissive servant for arrogant boomer asshole jews.

HTTPS Everywhere and script blocking are built in.
Settings > Brave shields defaults.
Or lion icon in url bar for each site.

User agents. Brave defaults the user agent to the same one as Chrome, to limit fingerprinting. If you want to switch:
Install User-Agent Switcher
chrome.google.com/webstore/detail/user-agent-switcher-for-c/djflhoibgkdhkhhcedjiklpkjnoahfmg
or
Same as Chrome, open the Inspector (ctrl+shift+i) > top right stack icon > more tools > network conditions > deselect (Select automatically) and choose a predefined or custom. Active as long as the inspector stays open for that tab.

about:config
brave:flags
brave:about
(in Chrome it's chrome:flags and chrome:about)
It might have what you're looking for, but I agree it's not as useful as FF was.

WebGL, WebRTC blocking
Settings > Brave shields defautls > Fingerprinting protection > Block All
I think that will prevent IP leaking with WebRTC. However that wouldn't turn them off or canvas off exactly, just preventing fingerprinting (with randomness?). That's an area no longer easy in Chrome, so search on what's a fullproof way to disable them now. Test your VPN with sites like browserleaks.com/webrtc
