How can I block analytics in Firefox and Yahoo?

Posted

Too much time being wasted sending my PC info to third party analytics company. And it's none of their business anyway.

This data normally sends lightning quick and shouldn't really affect performance. Although, I can see why you would want to stop that.

You can enable Firefox's do not track me option from the Privacy section of the Options dialog.

I cannot find a Privacy section within the Options dialog (presumably under Tools in the Main Menu Bar). I have Windows 10 if that changes things. Thanks.
