Assuming the websites visited still work correctly with this feature enabled, then this can only be a good thing.
I turned tracking protection on in Firefox as soon as this feature was added to the browser. I've almost forgotten since then, how my shopping history would follow me across the internet before this was available. Completely agree with l3v1ck - enabling it by default can only be a good thing.
I understand the need for advertising , but tracking is a big no no.
What I hate the most is clicking on a website and then being locked in and only being able to get back out of a site is to spam the back button, sites that use that trick should be banned.
Ps I don't even like firefox as its been the most crashy buggy browser I have ever used, but am tempted to try it again if this works.
My main issue with firefox is that it seemed slow when I last used it and the dev tools aren't as good as chromes. Maybe I'll give it another go when this is implemented.
Pro-tip: Right-click on the Back button, and you can skip over the redirects that try to lock you in.
Cool thank you for that.
I tried FF the other day, seemed at least as snappy as Opera - though this is on a 3mbps connection so may not be the best test.
Hey, Firefox. Remember when you first launched, how you took all the cookie controls out because they were needless clutter, at the same time that real Mozilla users were trying to warn people about tracking cookies? Yeah, you kneecapped attempts to do something, and this situation is your own damn fault.
