What if webmasters choose to block mozilla users?

Posted

Hi everybody, As website owner my convern comes after mozilla is blocking tracking by default meaning that google ads cannot be served by default, only if users will choose so. Most of the mozilla users don't even know what tracking means, so the chances of choosing to allow tracking and serve ads are very low. Many websites owners use adsense ads to pay for their servers/hosting, their hard work, etc. and as you know every visitors is comsuming resources and bandwidth, so my questions is: Why webmasters shouldn't block mozilla users since the chances to generate revenue thru ads is very low, to none? I get that it's a great feature to the user, but should be an option rather than a default setting? If webmasters choose to block mozilla users, there will be a lot of users who can't access a specific information and they don't even know the cause.

can you give a url where this is happening?

(also having set firefox to never store history in its privacy & security options would be putting the browser into a kind of permanent private browsing mode)

hi, firefox is not enabling tracking protection by default at the moment, unless users open a private browsing window as this is understood as a signal that they don't want to get tracked in this state.
