In the latest Firefox 72 update released by the Daily Build channel, Mozilla introduces a new “Fingerprinters” option for The Enhanced Tracking Protection for Standard Mode. Enabled by default to protect users from fingerprint script attacks. Firefox 72 Stable will be released on January 7, 2020.
In the latest Firefox 70 Stable, Standard Mode blocks social media trackers by default, tracking cookies across sites, tracking content in private windows and Cryptominer.
But some websites target your system based on their system configuration, screen resolution, browser used, and the font installed, which is called fingerprinting. In Firefox, users who choose Strict mode or enable Fingerprinters in custom mode can avoid such script tracking by enhancing tracking protection.
Mozilla has been testing protection solutions against cryptominers, which use your CPU to mine and earn virtual currency, while Mozilla will create invisible scripts that can track you based on information such as computer configuration. As a result, Mozilla has added fingerprint recognition to Firefox’s anti-tracking policy.
