Ich bin ganz schön erschrocken, wie ich ausspioniert werden könnte, oder getrackt oder wie auch immer. Gibt es eine Generaleinstellung in Ff um dies zu unterbinden? Diese Frage kommt von Peter

What do you mean with "staying private" (Privat bleiben) ?

Website need an IP address to be able to send you a content and they can possibly do a reverse DNS lookup to get your location. Private Browsing mode won't help in such a case because that merely works locally by not storing session data on the profile folder. You can use a trusted VPN service for more privacy.
