I think librewolf is my new favorite web browser ! 😀
Its a fork of firefox with privacy and security settings enabled by default. It ships with ublock origin for blocking ads/trackers. Also, It don't even have search engines like google, yahoo etc. as an option (BTW, I recommend you use searx). They also try to be fast with security updates, so they'll update their browser as soon as firefox releases a new version.
And yes, they also changed settings in the about:config page to harden firefox to its core.
Actually, I checked every setting on that list and found that librewolf had already configured most of it by default.
So, I made an issue on their gitlab repo about the few settings they missed - https://gitlab.com/librewolf-community/settings/-/issues/49
Within a few hours the maintainer responded, explaining each setting, why they chose that, what settings they are planning to change, etc.
( I recommend someone at @privacytools take a look at this issue, it may interest you. )
This is the most important reason to choose librewolf, because its community maintained. We cannot have the same level of trust & engagement with a for-profit company.
I do see an "import bookmarks" button, but I don't think there's firefox sync support. I don't use sync personally, so I haven't looked into it.
I found an issue on their git repo about this - https://gitlab.com/librewolf-community/browser/common/-/issues/11
Also, I recommend you take a look at this project - https://www.xbrowsersync.org/
You might take a look at this gitlab issue - https://gitlab.com/librewolf-community/browser/linux/-/issues/145
I think this happened as a side effect of all the privacy tweaks they did. Basically, you'll have to change a bunch of settings in the about:config page to get it working.
This isn't the cleanest solution, I hope they fix these issues and improve their documentation in the future.
