I have noticed that the default login page for my FF27 spin no longer connects to ixquick dot com.

Click on Edit --> Preferences --> General
In the address box in that tab, change the word ixquick to startpage. Its the same page without forwarding.

This will also be posted in the AtomicPup-XIX thread.

Two security items are needed to be False

webgl.disable-extensions
webgl.disabled

If any are true, just double-click on that entry to change.

Subject description: Speed vs. savefile size
 

@8Geee

--> Its a root only package, everything installs to root, and the
--> desktop icon must be linked to root/.mozilla/firefox/firefox.
--> That which resides in usr needs to be removed.
--> One might say its a modular approach... don't like it, just
--> remove the dot mozilla file in root and the root/dot
--> cache/dot mozilla folders. Voila!, gone.

One problem is that /root is hardlinked to the savefile
/initrd/pup_rw/root , so either Firefox fills up the savefile
almost at the beginning of a session, or, if one simlinks
the /root/.mozilla to a directory in HD, there is almost
nonstop disk activity and operation becomes very slow.
In lynx under DOS, the configuration data was in a file
which, among other things, contained paths to separate
cache, cookie, history and bookmark files. This allowed
putting the cache and cookie files in a ramdisk, so
speed would not ne impaired and information that
needed permanent storage could be stored in HD.
Firefox seems to store everything in the same profile
directory and I do not know how to automatically keep
volatile data in RAM and save pemanent data to the HD.

Computer: 300 MHz Pentium II with 288 MB of RAM,
alternating between Racy 5.5 and Windows 98SE.

I do not have that problem using slacko5.7 based puppy. My 256Mb save file shows 210Mb free, for a few weeks.

Perhaps you are using an ext2 save, or Puppy Event Manager needs tweaking.

PostPosted: Fri 23 Nov 2018, 20:52    Post subject: ECDSA compromise  

Recently, Slackware published an update to OpenSSL. Within that update was a very troubling patch for ANY TLS security using the ECDSA method. Although the full patch borqued AtomicPup-XIX, this one patch is the most important update.

Firefox27 as provided here, and in AtomicPup-XIX need to 'False' two TLS1.2 security methods.

1.) Disconnect from the internet.
2.) Open Firefox27
3.) After warnings clear, type about:config in the address bar
4.) Be careful, and type ECDSA in the search box
5.) Make False all security methods with ECDSA (double-click any that are True)
6.) close the browser
7.) MENU --> Shutdown --> Restart graphical server
8.) reconnet to internet as needed.

This curve-family has been successfully compromised by a timing attack when Hyper-Threading is used.
