0Mozilla Firefox LogoUse encrypted SNI in firefox and sync the setting

I’m always look­ing to keep my inter­net access as secure as pos­sible. One thing that recent came to light is encryp­ted SNI. If you don’t know what this is google is your friend. If you want to make use of it in fire­fox you have to turn it on as it is off by default

in the addresws bar go to about:config and go ahead when warned

Use the search bar to find the set­ting network.security.esni.enabled and double click to turn it on

In the search bar search for services.sync.prefs.network.security.esni.enabled and click the + but­ton that appears

This second set­ting tells fire­fox sync to sync the first pref­er­ence with fire­fox sync (assum­ing you are signed in) so you only have to do this once and it will apply to all your fire­fox installs

Happy secure brows­ing.
