Firefox Better Web with Scroll

What is Firefox Better Web with Scroll?

Mozilla has partnered with Scroll to bring you Firefox Better Web. Firefox Better Web with Scroll is a service that improves your reading experience and protects your privacy while funding journalism. Firefox Better Web gives you an ad-free experience on Scroll partner sites. When used with the Firefox desktop extension, it also blocks trackers and increases performance. You also get additional tools such as audio versions of articles, offline reading and article sync so you will never lose your place.

The service is available for a very small monthly fee that supports websites you love (see list of publishers that this partnership supports.)

Firefox Better Web works on other browsers too! To get the most privacy, use the Firefox Better Web extension with Firefox desktop; the extension uses Enhanced Tracking Protection technology to block trackers on all sites.

For more information on how Scroll works visit Scroll's knowledge base.

What changes does Firefox Better Web make to Firefox's Enhanced Tracking Protection?

If used on Firefox desktop, the Firefox Better Web extension changes your default Enhanced Tracking Protection settings to use a Custom setting that blocks tracking, cryptominers and fingerprinters in all windows. This goes beyond the Standard default setting. See here to learn more about Enhanced Tracking Protection settings.
