Mozilla Firefox had a Do-not-track feature that lets you tell websites that you don’t want your browsing behavior tracked. Some major websites track your browsing behavior so that they can then sell or provide that information to other companies, which in turn, show ads, products or services specifically targeted to you. This includes information about what sites you visit, things you like, dislike and purchase. In this tutorial we will explain how the Firefox Do-not-track feature works and show you how to turn it on.


How does the Do-not-track Firefox feature work?

When you use the Do-not-track feature, Firefox instructs every website you visit, which includes their advertisers and other content providers, that you don’t want your Internet browsing behavior tracked. Turning on the Do-not-track feature will in no way affect your ability to log into websites nor cause it to forget your private information, such as saved shopping carts, location information or login information.


How to turn on the Do-not-track feature in Firefox

Launch the Mozilla Firefox Internet Browser. On the top, you’ll notice a menu bar that says File, Edit, History, Bookmarks, Tools and Help.

Click on Tools, and then select Options.

A new window will pop up titled Options. You’ll see a menu bar on the top of this window that has sections titled General, Tabs, Content, Applications, Privacy, Security, Sync, and Advanced.

Select Privacy. You’ll then see a section titled, Tracking.

Select the check box for Tell websites I do not want to be tracked.

Click OK to close the Options window.


Everybody’s experienced this at one point: You visit a website and when you are about to see that movie or the link to download that file, you are prompted to first take a survey. These surveys can be a real pain. You have to enter your credit information for most of them, which is a dead giveaway of spam, and even if you don’t, completing the survey will usually redirect you to another survey. So here’s an easy trick on how to bypass it.

  1. First you’ll need to download the Mozilla Firefox browser. Most people won’t make it past this step. “Oh I’ll need to change Internet browsers? Forget it!” By no means is this true. You can still use Safari and Internet Explorer all the same. But when you run into a site that prompts you into a survey before giving you access to its site, then you can just copy and paste the link from your regular browser to Firefox, and proceed from there.
  2. Open Mozilla Firefox Internet Browser once it’s downloaded.
  3. Click the Bookmarks Menu Tab in the Menu Bar located on the top left of the browser. If you do not see the Bookmarks Menu Tab, press the ALT key on your keyboard and the menu will appear.
  4. From the drop down menu, select Get Bookmark Add-ons. This will open up a Mozilla’s Add-on webpage.
  5. Locate the search bar in the top right corner of the page.
  6. Download an add-on for Firefox called NoScript. This is a very useful add on that will block almost everything, including website surveys, and pop-up ads.
  7. Next, download an add-on for Firefox called CPA Blocker. Like NoScript, CPA Blocker will automatically block popular survey link redirects.
  8. Copy and Paste you website link into Mozilla Firefox and navigate to your site. CPA Blocker and NoScript will take care of the rest.
