    Mozilla Firefox To Block Cryptomining Sc 5cb496c5fe727300ba12550f 1 Apr 17 2019 9 31 10 Poster

    Are you a Firefox user? Mozilla has doubled down on privacy to counter confusing online third-party tracking consent forms. Learn more:

    Mozilla has released Firefox 70, introducing new security indicators for HTTP and HTTPS sites, and a new privacy report that shows how many times its Enhanced Tracking Protection has blocked third-party tracking cookies, fingerprinting, and browser-based cryptominers.  

    Mozilla says Firefox has blocked over 450 billion third-party tracking requests since July, with the number rising sharply after Firefox 69 was released last month, which enabled tracking protection by default.   

    Firefox 70 offers users some insight into how frequent online tracking occurs in its new privacy report, which is accessible by clicking the browser's new shield icon next to the HTTPS padlock icon, and scrolling down to Show Report.
