LibreWolf – free and open source fork of Firefox, focused on privacy, security and freedom



Review

  • Latest Version of Firefox: LibreWolf is compiled directly from the latest build of Firefox Stable. You will have the latest features, and security updates;
  • Completely Independent Build: LibreWolf uses a completely independent build from Firefox and has its own settings, profile folder and installation path. As a result, it can be installed alongside Firefox or any other browser;
  • Extensions firewall: limit internet access for extensions;
  • IJWY (I Just Want You To Shut Up): embedded server links and other calling home functions are removed. In other words, zero unauthorized or background connections by default;
  • User settings updates: ghacks-user.js and user user.js;
  • Settings protection: important settings are enforced/locked within librewolf.cfg and policies.json, those settings cannot be changed by addons/updates/LibreWolf itself or unwanted/accidental manipulation;
  • To change those settings you can easily do it by editing librewolf.cfg and policies.json;
  • LibreWolf-addons: set of optional LibreWolf extensions;
  • Statistics disabled: telemetry and similar functions are disabled;
  • Tested settings: settings are performance aware;
  • Dark theme (classic and advanced);
  • Recommended and code reviewed addons list;
  • Built-in advertising blocking by uBlock Origin;
  • Search engines available: Duckduckgo, StartPage, Qwant;
  • And much more…
