Some news websites are still able to track page hits in Private Browsing window. Doesn't private browsing prevent this??
Particular news website allows a certain number of articles to be accessed per month before blocking all access. If private browsing prevents this type of tracking why does it still continue?

We are not going to advise you how to avoid a legitimate paywall.
If no one pays for the news service, you will not have free tasters to look at.

If someone is going to post a link then it shouldn't be blocked by a paywall. The point is that Private browsing should not allow any type of tracking. Period.

Maybe you need to explain what you are doing and what is blocked. If it is not part of s legitimate paywall I or others may have suggestions that help, however to me it sounds like you are wishing to circumvent a paywall.
I suspect you have unrealistic expectations of what private browsing does.
- Mozilla Support rules and guidelines
- Private Browsing - Use Firefox without saving history
- What happened to Tracking Protection?
Do Not Track is itself fairly controversial and toothless. Discussion of that is however outside the scope of this forum, but see for instance
I will close this thread. Feel free to post again if you have a question about how Firefox works or problems with use of Firefox but please bear in mind name calling and insulting those trying to assist will not help you get answers.
