Firefox browser protects you against fingerprinting by blocking third-party requests to companies that are known to participate in fingerprinting.

Panopticlick doesn't use third-party requests in their tests.

If you need better protection against canvas fingerprinting, enter about:config in the URL bar and set privacy.resistFingerprinting = true. This also isn't a perfect protection, but much better than default.
