The Control Center lets you manage site security and privacy settings in one place. Use the Control Center to view information about a site and make choices about trackers and insecure content on that page.
Control Center in regular browsing
When you visit a site, an icon will appear in your address bar to let you know if your connection to the site is fully secure. This should help you avoid malicious websites that are trying to obtain your personal information.
Click the icon to view the Control Center, which tells you about that site’s connection and owner, as well as any protection that’s enabled.
Control Center in Private Browsing
When viewed in Private Browsing, the Control Center indicates whether or not a page has elements that track you, in addition to information about your connection. Firefox’s Tracking Protection feature will automatically block these trackers in Private Browsing, and the Control Center allows you to disable the feature if needed.
