How to block popups in Firefox by manipulating browser settings
Inside Firefox , there is a feature called Tracking Protection. Tracking is a collection of data related to the activity of a particular user between websites or applications that are not owned by the data collector. This means that Firefox’s Tracking Protection feature blocks those components of the page that read and collect your activity and then stores that information in a database.

Does Firefox Private Browsing make users more secure?
We have heard a lot about the Private Browsing mode in Firefox and its help in removing ads , malware attacks as well as malicious referrals. But let us make everything clear.
Private Browsing is definitely a useful feature of Firefox because:
– If someone else is using Firefox on your computer , all your online activities will be hidden from their view.
– Allows you to browse the web in a private window that does not store cookies and browsing history.
– Hides your download history.
But that being said, it does not guarantee your safety. According to official information released by Firefox developers:
– It does not make you invisible and hide your identity.
– Private web browsing does not protect you from malware attacks and referrals.
This means that you can fall prey to scammers, cyber thieves and browser hijackers. We recommend that you download a reliable adblocker instead of testing dozens of extensions.
