Mozilla bans surveillance vendor from Firefox certificate whitelist | ZDNet

Mozilla will not trust certificates issued by a company accused of selling surveillance and hacking services to oppressive regimes in the Middle East.

The browser maker announced today that it will not include the root certificates of a controversial company named DarkMatter inside Firefox's root store -- the browser internal list of entities approved to issue TLS certificate for securing signing encrypted HTTPS traffic.

This is when it actually gets crazy for India.

In India GST, Income tax softwares that are provided by emSigner ... it automatically installs CCA india "root" certificates to desktops.

Which means GoI can track those computers easily (even HTTPS connections) without end user knowing about it.

Firefox 72.0, See All New Features, Updates and Fixes

  • We now block fingerprinting scripts by default for all users.
  • Firefox replaces annoying notification request pop-ups with a more delightful experience, by default for all users. The pop-ups no longer interrupt your browsing, in its place, a speech bubble will appear in the address bar when you interact with the site.
  • Picture-in-picture video is now also available in Firefox for Mac and Linux.
  • Support for blocking images from individual domains has been removed from Firefox, because of low usage and poor user experience.
  • Experimental support for using client certificates from the OS certificate store can be enabled by setting the preference security.osclientcerts.autoload to true (Windows only).
  • Firefox now supports simulation of meta viewport in Responsive Design Mode.
