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?

Every time I open a new tab, I get this popup at the bottom of the page saying Browse By Yourself. I keep closing it with the X at the top right, but it just keeps coming up.

How can I stop this? There should be an option to stop sending the info/"Got it" or whatever.

Thanks.

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,...

I've researched the net and every "solution" that has been offered fails to work.

I'd like the awesome bar (address bar) not to remember or suggest anything and if by chance it does remember something I want CCleaner to be able to delete the entries.

This is a deal breaker. If I can't protect my privacy using Firefox I'll find another browser. I am a longtime Firefox user and want to stay with Firefox.

EVERY time I want to delete a web page from my "Top Sites" I receive the following unnecessary message: "Are you sure you want to delete every instance of this page from your history? This action cannot be undone."

Well, of course it can't be undone. I don't want it to be undone.

Is there a method of eliminating that nag question each and every time I delete a web site from "Top Sites". I enjoy the "Top Site" feature, but the nag-on-delete is quite annoying.

Ok, it is a pretty simple question.

"How do I force FF to reload a page?"

Searching I find:


Windows/Linux:

   Hold down Ctrl and click the Reload button.
   Or, Hold down Ctrl and press F5.

Which is not right from what I see.

If I press CTL and the reload button (which I take as being the one which looks like a near complete circle with an arrow turning clockwise.

It doesn't mention that it also opens a new tab.

However!

Pressing <CTL> <F5> it refreshes the page. Can't confirm that it is a forced reload.

Can someone help me clarify (and maybe fix the discontinuity in what does what?

I had one of my gmail accounts open on the left side of the tab bar (Tab1).

When I opened a different gmail account (Tab2) in a new tab both Tab 1 and Tab 2 moved to the right side of the line of tabs.

That is not where I want them!!!!!!!

1) Before yesterday this would not happen.

I tried to move Tab1 and Tab2 back to the left side of the Tab bar where they would have been until you messed up Firefox

2) Before yesterday I could move the tabs to any position on the Tab Bar.

I want to know that when I open a to know my tabs will open on the right side of the tab I am working in without moving the original tab to the right side of the row of tabs. Which is how it was in the past.

I want to the ability to move the tabs to any location on the tab bar restored.

There isn't anything that I can find in Options that can fix this issue.
