Firefox should have thirdparty cookies active by default. E.g. Facebook is invading my privacy (and those of my friends) with cookies, scripting within other websites.

Worst part is most Websites are no transparent enough for users in how their browsing history might be watched by other companies. A feature similiar to ghostly (showing all thirdparty ressource sites) should be active (or at least available in vanilla firefox). Make it a simple infobar with a "never show me this again / always show me" option. This way a user knows at least whos watching him.

thx for firefox, mozilla rocks :-)

hi MilesTeg81, mozilla is always looking into increasing privacy protections for its users. you're right that third-party cookies are not blocked by default (it was looked into some time ago, but i don't remember the outcome or why it hasn't been implemented after all). but users can of course disable them manually: Third-party cookies and Firefox tracking protection

there is also ongoing work of adding a tracking protection feature into firefox itself, which you can already test when you enter about:config into the firefox address bar (confirm the info message in case it shows up) & search for the preference named privacy.trackingprotection.enabled. double-click it and change its value to true.
