We enabled the option in FireFox (in the setting): Don't follow me.

But in the Window/Interface of FireFox it is possible to enable Dont' follow me option during a browser session.

Is the possible to enable the Don't follow me options so it will be mandatory for every browser session? A user should not have the option to disable "Don't follow me.

With kind regards, Ben Raben

I've had Firefox "armored" for a while - Ublock to block adds, Ghostery to block trackers and other things, Cookiebro to control who installs information on my computer. The latest Firefox (63.0) now also has tracking protection. I've mostly been happy with the first three - is Firefox's new tracking protection overkill?? Maybe too much of a good thing, and if so which one should I get rid of??

Any suggestions? thnx,...

If there are two many iframes on the webpage, FireFox (63.0 64-bit) confuses its content. Othe browesers (Chrome, Opera show correctly). What can I do about it?

Example: page with 7 iframes: http://101coffeemachines.info/lattego/

4th of them: <td><iframe style="width:120px;height:240px;" marginwidth="0" marginheight="0" scrolling="no" frameborder="0" src="//rcm-eu.amazon-adsystem.com/e/cm?lt1=_blank&bc1=000000&IS2=1&bg1=FFFFFF&fc1=000000&lc1=0000FF&t=101coffeema05-21&language=it_IT&o=29&p=8&l=as4&m=amazon&f=ifr&ref=as_ss_li_til&asins=B07DP916VN&linkId=180ebf82c476863c5814852bde748fae"></iframe></td>

However, Firefox shows on this place the content of 7th iframe (youtube): https://screenshots.firefox.com/ZzuslDL7XBHR9YL9/101coffeemachines.info

I understand the basic concepts of tracking protection but I've been unable to find answers to a few specific questions. I found some documentation here in the questions / answers section but it didn't provide all the answers.

1. Do I need to clear existing cookies to remove the myriad of sites already tracking me before turning on tracking protection? Or, will turning it on do an immediate filter on my existing cookies?

2. Will turning off tracking stop sites that I want to retain login information for from retaining the "login" cookie infor i.e. are we close to a full "cookie block" with anti-tracking? Or does FFox have some creative algorithm (or list) that allows it to distinguish between tracking cookies and less offensive cookies? Concurrently, is there a way to allow a "tracking cookie" if I need it to retain information for a site I'm comfortable with?

3. One specific tracking question: Will eliminating tracking cookies stop (specifically) Google's cross site advertising, where you look at a product on site A (who shares that info via google) and then a little later google's advertising mechanism pops up those products when you're at site B?
