Any update(s) on this?
I just want to confirm that ublock origin stopped working for me, and just having webext-ublock-origin installed does nothing. Attempts to install ublock directly fail, purebrowser is not recognized.
Could this have to do that purebrowser now uses its own .purism directory to store configurations, temp files etc… (as opposed to .mozilla)?
BTW, did anyone get the ‘work-around’ in the debian bug referenced above to work.
PS: I permit myself a personal comment: I am in principle very supportive of Purism’s goal, but on and off there seems not to be enough (wo)manpower behind PureOS to avoid an occasional rough ride. (Browsing the web without ublock is no fun!) I am also afraid that if you want safe devices, you have to invest work and know-how (cf. the variou warnings / readmes at the tor project pages). So, on the specific issue, I wonder whether users would not be served better by having firefox directly, plus (1) documentation / pointers to recommended plugins, and (2) how to harness firefox to be leaking fewer personal data. (The latter being tricky, since just copying and pasting configuration files will break some sites for some users…)
PPS: Aside from the “fan full blast” issues I encounter once in the while, the fragility of PureOS is one of the reasons my Librem is not my main laptop, and I make do with an older Thinkpad running Qubes …
