Security/Fennec+Tor Project

Requirements

In order to empower Fennec the same capability as Orfox, the Tor Browser on Android, we have to meet the following minimal requirements.

  • All network connections (Gecko and Java code) must be proxied.
  • Only allow incognito mode (e.g. turn off JavaScript, WebRTC, etc.)
  • Run NoScript and HTTPS Everywhere
  • Apply all the Tor Browser patches


Value Proposition of Tor on Fennec

It would be awesome if Fennec could prompt the user with something like "you have Orbot installed, which is a secure network proxy which allows to:"

  • Bypass censorship
  • Improve network security on unsecure network
  • Access .onion sites

Caveat!!
Before we are certain that Fennec has the same level of anonymity features as Orfox does, don't use the word anonymous because it provides a false sense of security to users.
