Mozilla has introduced the new Firefox, which has built-in blocking for Internet activity tracking enabled for all users. A protection system called Enhanced Tracking Protection (ETP) has now become active for all users by default, whereas previously this option was manually configured or only activated for new browser users who downloaded it for the first time.
Thus, the updated Firefox is seriously determined to protect users from unnecessary attention to their actions on the World Wide Web and visited sites. The new build of Firefox is compatible with Windows PCs, Linux, macOS, and Android devices. Firefox 69 on Windows devices is even faster because it prioritizes current activities over background processes. On MacBooks, the updated browser may switch to low-power graphics in certain situations to save battery consumption.
The ETP option, available by default for all Firefox 69 users, in addition to blocking third-party programs to spy on user actions on the Internet, also has protection against unwanted cookies and, in addition, is able to detect and block illegal mining of crypto money using the device user. With this function, the Mozilla Firefox browser has the ability to block the scripts of unscrupulous cryptominers, thereby preventing the slowdown of the user's gadget. The Firefox browser acquired such a protective tool last year, but now it has received official status. This function can, if desired, be modified to suit user preferences, for example, add a specific Internet resource to exceptions or simply block the security system itself.
In addition to everything, the new 69th browser assembly prevents the collection of unique user data, namely, his digital fingerprints, which remain at the time of the web session. Often with their help, marketers and advertising agencies are able to identify a specific person and analyze his preferences.
Along with the security features, the new Firefox has got other useful features. So, there was an option to block video autoplay. Also, the operating principle of the Adobe Flash Player has changed in the browser - from now on it always starts after a preliminary request for permission from the user.
