My Firefox ad-blocking and privacy extensions
The ad-blocking and privacy extensions I use for firefox are:

- NoScript Security Suite - Maximum protection for your browser: NoScript allows active content only for trusted domains of your choice to prevent exploitation.
- Privacy Badger - Automatically learns to block invisible trackers.
- uBlock Origin - An efficient blocker, easy on CPU and memory.
