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,...

Content Blocking / Tracking Protection in Firefox uses a list of tracking server addresses from Disconnect. It is most similar in principle to Ghostery. By default, Firefox's feature only runs in private windows. You can experiment and see whether it adds anything or merely duplicates the results you get from your extensions.

More info: What happened to Tracking Protection?

By default, Firefox's feature only runs in private windows Actually, mine came set to : All Detected Trackers, so I guess that's the default.

Just reading the options setting, it would seem to mostly duplicate Ghostery. Seems like the best choice for the moment is to observe Firefox behavior and see what get's blocked that Ghostery missed, assuming that Ghostery gets first crack at the stream. thnx,

The selection for whether it runs only in private windows or in all windows is nested directly under that checkbox (see attached screenshot). This should default to "Only in private windows" in Firefox 63, as with many previous versions of Firefox. At some point, the default may change, but not yet.
