  13. Prevent Facebook from tracking you around the web. The Facebook Container extension for Firefox helps you take control and isolate your web activity from Facebook. What does it do? Facebook Container works by isolating your Facebook identity into a separate container that makes it harder for Facebook to track your visits to other websites with third-party cookies. How does it work? Installing this extension closes your Facebook tabs, deletes your Facebook cookies, and logs you out of Facebook. The next time you navigate to Facebook it will
  14. There are many problems with web advertising in general, including annoying features like autoplay video ads and pop-ups and also problems like “click fraud” which matter to advertisers.

Also discussed is Mozilla and how they are involved (like in the Google/Mozilla search deal), including Brendan Eich who created JavaScript that eventually left Mozilla to found Brave. There is al
  15. Mozilla is bringing support for Google's WebP image format to Firefox 65. The WebP image format was created by Google as a modern format designed for displaying images on the web.

Popular browsers such as Chrome, Opera, and Edge already support the WebP image format and with the release of version 65, Firefox will as well. Unfortunately, even with Firefox 65, WebP

  18. But there's a lot of security issues to think about first Combining online and offline could lead to security settings not listed here A CONSORTIUM of developers is looking for a way that will allow users to edit locally saved files in web apps.

At the moment, users need to upload files, edit them and download them aga
  19. In Changing Our Approach To Anti-Tracking, Mozilla revealed plans to improve the privacy protection of Firefox users and the performance of the browser through the improved implementation of content blocking in the web browser.

  21. Facebook has been no stranger to controversy and scandal over the years, but things have been particularly bad over the last twelve months.

Now, Mozilla, Creative Commons, and a new micropayment startup have announced a $100 million grant program to finally bring that dr
