@maiki mentions Customizing Firefox using auto config:

The AutoConfig file can be managed centrally. To do so, the location of a secondary AutoConfig file in the primary AutoConfig file:

pref(”autoadmin.global_config_url”, “http://yourdomain.com/autoconfigfile.js”);

@fitheach has a customised version of this and says: “Some settings can be quite restrictive and I’ve disabled them. Best thing is to install as is, if a site doesn’t work disable some likely settings.”

@RedLore recommends an article on Restore Privacy which gives you a list of all the about:config changes to make to increase privacy on Firefox.

@steven also recommends https://privacytools.io and says it “is a great reference for privacy in general, and it recommends add-ons and about:config tweaks. Although it’s a website, it’s also an open source project, so you can look at the bug and feature requests to see the rationale behind their recommendations.”
