Any redundant privacy add-ons for FF?

So I did some research for a bit and ended up with uBlock Origin (medium mode only on my own devices as it still breaks sites sometimes), HTTPS Everywhere, Decentraleyes and Canvasblocker.​Anything unnecessary here? I personally think HTTPS everywhere will stop being useful somewhere in 2020 and in fact already is kinda overkill as all big sites switched to HTTPS in the meantime except for some small/old sites I guess, but I could be wrong. Any other recommended privacy add-ons I should be looking out for?

Online dating and privacy – Possible?

Online dating apps and websites are aggressively data mining information and leaking it (Grindr, Tinder, et. all). Inserting false information in an online dating profile is creepy on-top of violating TOS, so the only other options is to simply not use these services.Are there alternatives to dating websites with a more traditional means of communication? How do you do it?

Some questions on Nextcloud and Vultr

Posting this in privacy as I got a lot of inspiration from others who went the nextcloud route.

I recently bought some server space at Vultr, 25GB and with Nextcloud (plus Ubuntu) already pre-installed. It worked great and it was easy to get going.

I exported all my photos from Google photos and then transfered them to my server (via Nextcloud). They totaled around 15-16GB. Then I got a message saying that the disk was full.

This had nothing to do with user quota on Nextcloud side (already set to unlimited for my admin user) and when checking the server’s available space (df -h), it said it was 100% full.

My question is. Does Ubuntu and nextcloud take up as much as 9-10GB? Does Nextcloud duplicate files in some way? It seems a bit odd and I’m not experienced with servers or nextcloud as this is my first try with this. I’m just curious to know where the rest of my space is used for…?

Thanks

Confidential? Are we trusting Google?

The new Google confidential mode is being rolled out. Who trusts Google? Sure, I use them for almost everything because of convenience but they are collecting everything on all of us so they can chase and harass us tapping or our consumer greed. There’s more to life than this!

Software for automating web browsing?

I always use Chrome in incognito mode for privacy. I have no problem with that except every time I restart the computer I have to open up several tabs for websites I always visit, type id and password and turn on night mode, adjust page zoom etc. I wish there were extensions to save tabs in incognito mode, but I couldn’t find any. I think the only option I have is to use some kind of software that remembers my actions and execute them to automatically open websites. Is there any easy and simple software you would recommend for this?
