I've just installed another uBO version to Firefox and now Google is totally confused about my "location" - lol.
What a little change in Fingerprint can do.  :-TU

Sorry, I meant to say "... newer uBO version ...".
I was still using an older version of uBO.

You must mean uBlock Origin then. I have it set to auto update so no revelation for me. Are you using default settings or custom?

Got a strange result...  :o FF (out of box) + arkenfox settings + NoScripts(out of box) =

Looks like this test (https://coveryourtracks.eff.org) creators wanna  make everybody using NoScript

Correct, with uBO I mean uBlock Origin.

For the Fingerprint experiments I've used several Firefox versions from old to the latest to see how well they performed against fingerprinting.
In one of the older Firefox versions (with the older uBO version) I had uBO set to default settings with a few tweaks.
After updating uBO to the latest version I did reset the uBO settings to default settings and made no tweaks.
After this uBO update I noticed that Google (Google Search) got confused about my "location" which was very surprising.

Which version of FF and NoScript did you use?

And in which order did you add NoScript and arkenfox to Firefox?
First NoScript and then applied the atkenfox settings or reverse?

FF 92.0.1 (64-bit), NoScript 11.2.11

I'm not sure if it's important at all in which order to add them both (I mean user.js and NoScript) and I can't remember it... I think at first I added NoScript.

Hi,

Does this site https://meteofrance.com/ work with Noscript?

for meteofrance.com you should TRUST/Temp. TRUST in NoScript:
meteofrance.com
cloudflare.com
jsdelivr.net
unpkg.com

and maybe some more web sites

Ok I've tested Firefox 92.0.1 (64-bit) with NoScript 11.2.11 and arkenfox 91.0 (everything out of box and with default settings) here is my result:

no addons, no arkenfox:

Blocking tracking ads?    Partial protection
Blocking invisible trackers?    Partial protection
Protecting you from fingerprinting?    Your browser has a unique fingerprint

Currently, we estimate that your browser has a fingerprint that conveys at least 17.75 bits of identifying information.

NoScript, no arkenfox:

Blocking tracking ads?    Yes
Blocking invisible trackers?    Yes
Protecting you from fingerprinting?    No

Currently, we estimate that your browser has a fingerprint that conveys 15.75 bits of identifying information.

NoScript, arkenfox:

Blocking tracking ads?    Yes
Blocking invisible trackers?    Yes
Protecting you from fingerprinting?    Yes

Currently, we estimate that your browser has a fingerprint that conveys 7.12 bits of identifying information.


NoScript and arekenfox, an amazing combo!

That's what I did but it doesn't work.
I uninstalled Noscript and disabled JavaScript in uBlock Origin.

Your site meteofrance.com does work after "TRUST/Temp. TRUST" the sites in NoScript, as indicated by HC.
If you have both NoScript and uBlock Origin installed then make sure you don't have javascript disabled in uBlock Origin for the site meteofrance.com (the </> icon on uBlock Origin main panel should have no red cross when you open the meteofrance.com site).

I tried adding No Script. It's been some time since I had it installed. If memory serves me, I had to do a lot of setting toggling to get things to work right on lots of sites.

Blocking tracking ads?    Yes
Blocking invisible trackers?    Yes
Protecting you from fingerprinting?    Yes

Within our dataset of several hundred thousand visitors tested in the past 45 days, only one in 138.47 browsers have the same fingerprint as yours.

Currently, we estimate that your browser has a fingerprint that conveys 7.14 bits of identifying information.
