The Firefox Enhanced Tracking Protection is now live and it’s easily accessible. Find it in the Settings section under Privacy & Security. Click on “Content Blocking” then check the boxes below:
It also works on a site-by-site basis, so users can pick and chose which which sites to white-list. (This option is available because the tool might wreak havoc on certain sites.) So, it’s possible to disable the block on specific sites, just like a regular ad-blocker.
