Ok, so in firefox's about:config
devtools.remote.tls-handshake-timeout 60
network.http.spdy.enforce-tls-profile false
network.proxy.proxy_over_tls false
security.webauth.u2f false
security.webauth.webauthn false
security.tls.version.min 3

right click and add the boolean key:

security.ssl.disable_session_identifiers true


you might get a little bit of pause, but that's because we denied the remote data mining server access :p

Anyone know the steps to lower the session resumption lifetime value to 10 mins on a Chrome web browser on Windows 10 64bit build 1809?

For AUDIOSPECACCTS: Thanks for the info, but I don't see where " firefox's about:config" resides? How about a clue, please?

cumbrepass: Firefox - Address Bar - Type in: ABOUT:CONFIG and hit ENTER --It will take you to the configuration page. It appears audios is suggesting changes to each line listed, and adding one. The page is in alpha. order, so each line easy to find - just scroll down the page using the leftmost words in each line til u match all words in the line. To change a value, right click on line and u will see the menu choices.

also, you should disable web rtc ip signaler in about:config by setting :

media.peerconnection.enabled false

so no ip leaks from the guys that have modified web rtc and using it to get others ip from a non-web server when they are on the same site (like amaszon.com for instance).

in windows 10 + chrome you will need to do both chrome and intenet explorer's settings because of the session leak they have currently.
