But, even if the ad is still coming from an Amazon web page via the third-party cookie data, you don't need to stop using your favorite browser. Mozilla has since updated Firefox, and it includes \" privacy as a first priority \" built in. Firefox now captures your search history, browsing history, voice search activity, everything you do on the web, even when you're not using their browser.
The result is a new quantifiable privacy feature in Firefox that automatically shuts down third-party cookies without warning. In fact, Mozilla gave users a technical update at the end of July, notifying users of the ad-blocking-like feature in the \" Track \" section on their \" Preferences \" page. But, despite that technical update, the browser's new \" Privacy as a first priority \" feature is not enabled by default.
To use the new tracking function, set your browser to the \" Privates \" settings. Now, Firefox decides who you'll see ads from based on your search history, browsing activity, and voice search activity. If you're not okay with personally identifiable data being used to target your ads, you can opt out by creating a \" Search engine and site \" exception in Firefox. If you'd rather simply turn the third-party cookie off entirely, you can nip that in the bud by adding the flag \" No third-party trackers \" to your browser's \" Settings \" page.
In early September, the company said that it is switching Thunderbird from a community project to a part of the Firefox organization as a part of its strategy to \"be more open\" and collaborate with other open source teams to build an open platform for email. Later that month, it said that it was reevaluating the Thunderbird project itself as the reason for the reclassification was related to governance issues within Thunderbird and other community projects with which Mozilla collaborated. Contributors to these projects might have concerns about working on a product that would be run outside their interests. In this light, Mozilla said it would reevaluate how it would work with Thunderbird. 7211a4ac4a
