Thanks, you've really helped me out figuring out what I should use because I at this moment only have:
- https only
- proxy switcher standard
- Adblock
- NoScript

So I'll need more.

I suggest removing Adblock as it allows "non-intrusive" ads and it was recently sold to an unknown buyer. Use an alternative such as uBlock Origin or Adguard.

Sharing ones security config does not seem very secure.

I'll just say, I use Linux, and I have a solid hardware firewall protecting my network.

Some suggestions;
- Use a unix based OS
- Firefox
- uBlock && uMatrix
- Don't execute sketchy shit
