Hello, thank you for taking the time to check this out.

I was closing the volume mixer after I no longer needed it and realized that Firefox was showing levels go up whenever I spoke into my microphone. I had been using it before to chat, but not on Firefox at all during the session at the time. No music or videos were playing in any of my tabs. After a while, it no longer picked it up, but I know for certain that there was no output of sound coming from my computer. I haven't been able to replicate it yet, but it does worry me.

Enhanced Tracking disable not working?

Hi everyone,

I've recently migrated to a new laptop and noticed, after setting up Firefox, that Twitter embeds weren't working on some websites. After some investigation, it seems related to my Enhanced Tracking Settings.

For example, I can get the embeds to appear if I change my Enhanced Tracking Settings to Standard, or if I set them to Custom and disable either of the following:

  • Tracking cookie protection
  • Tracking content protection

Interestingly, leaving the Enhanced Tracking settings as Strict (or Custom equivalent), and disabling Enhanced Tracking Protection for the particular site, doesn't work ...

Is this a bug? Or have I misunderstood how this (exception) mechanism works?

Here's the page I was looking at: https://www.vice.com/en/article/4ad3qp/donald-trump-tiny-desk-electoral-college

Could someone else try experimenting with their settings and see what renders on that article?

Best regards, Ed
