  • How to stop seeing too many ads and keep companies from following you around online. An ad blocker guide from the Firefox web browser.
  • The average person sees an average of 4,000 ads a day. If you think that’s too many, an ad blocker is your new best friend.
  • An ad blocker is a piece of software that can be used to block ads, and they work in two ways. The first way is when an ad blocker blocks the signal from an advertiser’s server, so the ad never shows up on your page. Another way ad blockers work is by blocking out sections of a website that could be ads.
  • These ads might be loud video ads, ads that follow you around the web, trackers, third-party cookies, and more. To use an ad blocker, you can search for ad blocker add-ons that are available in your browser. <a href="%(firefox)s">Firefox</a>, for example, has <a href="%(addons)s">this list of approved ad blocker add-ons</a>. Click on this list (or ad blockers that are approved for your browser) and see which fits your needs.
  • There’s <a href="%(url)s">AdBlocker Ultimate</a> that gets rid of every single ad, but buyer beware. Some of your favorite newspapers and magazines rely on advertising. Too many people blocking their ads could put them out of business.
  • Popup ads are the worst. Block them with <a href="%(url)s">Popup Blocker</a> and never deal with another annoying popup again.
  • One of the most popular ad blockers for Chrome, Safari and Firefox is <a href="%(url)s">AdBlock</a>. Use it to block ads on Facebook, YouTube and Hulu.
  • On Firefox, you can use <a href="%(privacy)s">Privacy</a> or <a href="%(blocking)s">Content Blocking</a> settings to get even more control over ad trackers that serve you the ads.
  • To start, click on the Firefox menu in the top right-hand corner of your screen. It looks like three lines stacked on top of each other. In the drop-down menu, click on Content Blocking. You should see a blue pop-up with different selections.
  • If ads don’t bother you and you don’t mind being followed by trackers and third-party cookies, then the Standard setting should work for you. To get trackers off your tail in Standard mode, use a <a href="%(url)s">Private Browsing</a> window.
  • If seeing too many ads ruins your day, then the Strict mode is a better fit. This mode will block known third-party trackers and cookies in all Firefox windows.
  • The Custom setting gives you the ultimate choice. You can decide what you’re blocking, including trackers, cookies and more. If you allow cookies from a website, you’ll automatically be in Custom mode.
  • Cover your trail, block trackers
  • Click on the Trackers box and you’ll be able to block trackers in two ways. One way to block trackers is to do it when you’re working in a Private Window. Another way to do it is to block trackers in all windows. Keep in mind that if you choose to always block trackers, some pages might not load correctly.
  • Take a bite out of cookies
  • <a href="%(url)s">Cookies</a> are sent by websites you visit. They live on your computer and monitor what you’ve been doing on a site. When an airline hikes your rates because you’ve looked at plane tickets once that day, that is the handiwork of a cookie.
  • In Firefox, you can block all third-party cookies or just those set by trackers. Be aware that blocking all cookies can break some sites.
  • If you don’t want your online behavior used for ads, you can send websites a polite “thanks but no thanks” letter by checking the <a href="%(url)s">Do Not Track</a> option of Firefox. Participation is voluntary, but the websites that participate will stop tracking you immediately.
  • In some cases, an ad blocker can help your browser go faster. When an ad is loading, it can slow down a website. At the same time, it takes longer to find what you’re looking for if you’re too busy closing yet another ad.
  • If you want to learn more about ad blocking, there are hundreds of ad blocker extensions available for Firefox and other browsers. If want to try out the ad blockers Firefox uses, <a href="%(url)s">click here to download</a> a browser that puts privacy first.

  • The internet has become as essential as electricity and running water, so choosing the best browser for you is more important than ever. The internet is a second office, a teacher and sometimes a medical advisor, even if your actual doctor would prefer you didn’t look up your symptoms online.
  • In the mid-nineties, Netscape, Internet Explorer and AOL dominated the landscape. It was a simpler time when the sweet melody of dial-up internet rang across the land. You learned the meaning of patience waiting for web pages to load. Back then, all that mattered was browser speed.
  • Today is a different story. Ads, privacy hacks, security breaches, and fake news might have you looking at other qualities in a browser. How does the browser protect your privacy? Does it allow trackers to follow you across the web? Does it built to multitask and handle many computer and internet operations at once?
  • When you use a browser for everything, it needs to be fast. But for the same reason, it needs to be private. A browser has access to everything you do online, so it can put you at real risk if it doesn’t have strong privacy features.
  • Marshall Erwin, Senior Director of Trust and Security at Mozilla
  • If you’re wondering what it means to have a private or fast browser, here’s a breakdown of three things a browser should have.
  • A browser is still a tool, so it makes sense that you’ll want to pick the best one for the job. If you’re a human who needs to work to survive, you’ll need a fast internet browser. One thing to keep in mind is a browser that runs third-party trackers is more likely to be slower than a browser that doesn’t. Third-party trackers are cookies, and while you can’t see them, they are running in the background of the site, taking up precious time. The more third-party trackers a browser blocks, the faster it can run.
  • This is one of the many reasons to choose the Firefox browser: Firefox blocks third-party trackers by default. We have other reasons and we’ll get into those later.
  • Remember the last massive data breach? If not, it’s probably because it happens so often. Companies hold on to customer data, like their personal or financial information, and hackers steal it. If you’re making safety a priority, then a secure internet browser is the best browser for you.
  • There are a few ways a browser can help its users stay secure. A browser that is up to date with the latest security tech can help protect your computer and websites from unwanted visitors, such as malware or computer viruses.
  • The second is not storing too much user data. Hackers can’t steal what’s not there, which is why Firefox keeps a minimum amount of information about its users. <a href="%(data)s">Firefox knows</a> if you use the browser and your general location <a href="%(privacy)s">but not the name of your childhood pet or your favorite color.</a>
  • Last but not least, a safe browser should offer tools to help you keep an eye on your accounts. Think of alerts that go straight to your email if any of your accounts get breached or icons that tell you whether a website is encrypted, (i.e., if it’s a good idea to enter your credit number on a shopping site).
  • Firefox is offering something new to keep you safe: <a href="%(monitor)s">Firefox Monitor</a>. It’s a free service that will alert you if there are any public hacks on your accounts and let you know if your accounts got hacked in the past. Another neat feature is the Green Lock. It looks like a small green icon at the top left side of the browser window. If you’re on Firefox and see the green lock, it means the website is encrypted and secure. If the lock is grey, you might want to think twice about entering any sensitive information.
  • We visit hundreds or even thousands of websites each day, and you can’t expect users to make security and privacy decisions for each of these sites. That is why a browser that gives you more control is so important - because it offers real, meaningful protection.
  • A browser that minds its business.
  • Privacy on the web is a hot button issue. If privacy is number one on your list of priorities, you want to look for a browser that takes that seriously. When choosing the best private browser for you, look at the tracking policy and how a browser handles your data. These seem like technical questions, but they’re the reason some browsers are more private than others.
  • Trackers are all those annoying “cookies” messages you get on airline sites. These third-party trackers know where you click and can be used to analyze your behavior. A private browser should give users the option to turn off third-party trackers, but ideally, turn them off by default.
  • Another way to stop trackers from tracking is using private mode to browse. Any browser that claims to be private should offer browsing in private mode.
  • One easy way to check is to visit a browser’s content setting page and privacy policy. The privacy webpage should outline if your data is shared and why. It’s why the <a href="%(privacy)s">Firefox privacy notice</a> is easy to read and easy to find.
  • Choosing the best browser for you is a lot like choosing a home. You want to explore your options, do some research and make a decision based on what’s important to you.

  • The Internet owes much of its success to openness: its open, shared structure has made it easy for everyone to build, surf, and thrive on it. But a few big companies are closing in, closing doors, and creating walled gardens that concentrate their ownership and control of the Web. Together, we can fight to make sure no one limits our Internet access, experience, or creation.
  • We rely on network providers – telcos and cable companies – for access to the Internet. Which puts them in a position to restrict that access for their own business objectives, favoring their own products, blocking sites or brands, or charging different prices and offering different speeds depending on content type. Net neutrality prohibits network providers from discriminating based on content, so everyone has equal access.
  • The fight for net neutrality continues all over the world. The rules that have been adopted in the US and Europe need to be defended and enforced. Reach out to your government official wherever you live, and express your support.
  • Working directly with legislative bodies to craft policy frameworks for and meaningful enforcement of net neutrality in the <a href="%(usa)s">United States</a>, <a href="%(europe)s">Europe</a>, <a href="%(india)s">India</a>, and all over the world.
  • The Web should remain open and interoperable, so we can keep our experience consistent, transparent, and full of possibility.
  • Interoperability is a big word with a simple result: your Web experience is basically the same across browsers, hardware, and operating systems because it was designed that way – and built with the open standards to support it. Open standards also allow anyone to invent new ways to make your Web experience better. But interoperability is losing ground to closed systems – and we’re losing transparency, participation, and innovation along with it.
  • 73% of Internet users have seen someone harassed online and 40% have personally experienced it.
  • Innovation can still come from anywhere – especially if we support it. Try out apps and products from companies you don’t already know.
  • Working with and even leading open standards bodies, like <a href="%(ietf)s">IETF</a> and <a href="%(w3c)s">W3C</a>.
  • Walking the talk
  • The Internet should continue to foster healthy competition among companies, opportunity for entrepreneurs, and meaningful choices for users.
  • A personalized Internet is an exciting prospect. But more and more, that means opting into a single company’s ecosystem – which streamlines your experience right now, but may seriously limit your choices in the future. Competitors will be reduced to those few companies who can offer the whole enchilada, thus consolidating the power of existing tech giants and making it much harder for entrepreneurs to disrupt the market with great ideas.
  • In most EU member countries, Google controls more than 90 percent of the search market. In some countries, it controls as much as 97%.
  • Make sure you understand the tradeoffs of that seamless online experience before you opt into a single ecosystem. Support the companies and services that best reflect your needs – and your values.
  • Opposing gatekeeper power
  • We should all be able to contribute to the Web, so it reflects and serves all of its users.
  • Today 3 billion people all over the world use the Internet to learn, work, play, and connect. But not everyone is able to contribute to it equally. Which means the Web doesn’t reflect the full diversity of its users, doesn’t work as well for some people as others, and can even marginalize certain communities and individuals.
  • Chinese, Spanish, Arabic and Portuguese speaking internet users make up 37.5% of the total online population, but only 11% of the Web is in their language.
  • Try your hand at creating Web content you care about, in your language. <a href="%(thimble)s">Thimble</a> is a great way to start.

  • The more voices, perspective, languages, and people contributing to the Web, the richer the experience for everyone. But the whole Internet is not yet accessible, welcoming, and safe for all. Together, we have the power to shape the Web, and our world along with it.
  • For the Internet to fulfill its greatest promise, it must reflect the diversity and experience of all people, everywhere.
  • As inclusive as the Web can seem, it’s not yet an equal playing field. More than half the world is still without it; emerging economies and marginalized communities are often the last to gain access. Far fewer women are using the Internet than men. And without diversity among its creators, the Web itself will reflect unconscious biases, while personalizing algorithms can reinforce our own.
  • In nine developing countries, women are still nearly 50% less likely to access the Internet than men.
  • Support a resource like <a href="%(wiki_support)s">Wikipedia</a> that drastically lowers the barriers to knowledge – or better yet, <a href="%(wiki_contribute)s">help build it</a>. Wikipedia needs more, and more diverse, contributors.

  • We’ve all seen our share of nasty comments sections. At times, the Web can feel like a very unfriendly place – particularly for women, minorities, and members of marginalized communities. By discouraging people from getting online, cyberbullying and cyber violence threaten not just individuals, but the Internet itself.

  • We should all have affordable, high-quality, unrestricted access to the whole Web, so the whole world can benefit.
  • To participate online, you have to be able to get online. Programs have emerged that offer free or subsidized Internet access, but it is often slow or restricted, creating a ‘poor Internet for poor people.’ At its most extreme, governments worldwide are turning off all or parts of the Internet to serve their own agendas, which can threaten human rights and even the health of the global economy.
  • In 2016, there were 51 intentional Internet shutdowns in 18 countries.

  • The Internet was built on the promise that any one of us might create the next big thing. But in order to keep creating, imagining, and reinventing our future online, the building blocks of the Web must be open to all. And together, we need to make sure the policies and laws that govern those building blocks are fair and functional.
  • Open source software – technology built with code that is open for view, use, and modification – is the engine that powers a huge amount of the Internet, from servers to operating systems to the bots that fetch your search results. It’s the infrastructure that makes the Web a truly public resource: transparent, trustworthy, and collaborative, so that anyone with an idea can contribute. But much like our IRL infrastructure, we have to commit the attention and resources to maintain it.
  • Patents were designed to create incentive for innovation. But the patent system and software development don’t always get along so well. Software patents are often written so broadly that they’re open to misinterpretation, and exclusive rights can far outlive the shelf life of the software itself. All of which creates obstacles and uncertainty for innovators, and leaves the door open for patent trolls and endless litigation.

  • We should all be able to choose – with clarity and confidence – what information we share with what companies, understanding the tradeoffs we’re making when we do.

  • Many people hear the term Web literacy and think it means learning to code, or <abbr>STEM</abbr> (science, technology, engineering, math) education. But Web literacy is much broader than that – it should include all the skills to be confident and competent online.

  • It can be tricky for people to know what to expect of any software or services they use today. The technology that powers our lives is complex and people don’t have the time to dig into the details. That is still true for Firefox, where we find that people have many different ideas of what is happening under the hood in their browser.

  • We only collect the data we need to make the best products.
  • We put people in control of their data and online experiences.
  • We adhere to “no surprises” principle, meaning we work hard to ensure people’s understanding of Firefox matches reality.

  • I use Firefox for almost everything on the Web. You folks at Mozilla must know a ton of stuff about me, right?
  • Firefox, the web browser that runs on your device or computer, is your gateway to the internet. Your browser will manage a lot of information about the websites you visit, but that information stays on your device. Mozilla, the company that makes Firefox, doesn’t collect it (unless you ask us to).
  • Really, you don’t collect my browsing history?
  • Mozilla doesn’t know as much as you’d expect about how people browse the web. As a browser maker, that’s actually a big challenge for us. That is why we’ve built opt-in tools, such as <a href="%(link)s">Firefox Pioneer</a>, which allows interested users to give us insight into their web browsing. If you sync your browsing history across Firefox installations, we don’t know what that history is - because it’s encrypted by your device.
  • It seems like every company on the web is buying and selling my data. You’re probably no different.
  • Mozilla doesn’t sell data about you, and we don’t buy data about you.
  • Mozilla is not your average organization. Founded as a community open source project in 1998, Mozilla is a mission-driven organization working towards a more healthy internet. The majority of Mozilla Corporation’s revenue is from royalties earned through Firefox web browser search partnerships and distribution deals around the world. You can learn more about how we make money in our <a href="%(link)s">annual financial report</a>.
  • Okay, those first few were softballs. What data do you collect?
  • Mozilla does collect a limited set of data by default from Firefox that helps us to understand how people use the browser. That data is tied to a random identifier, rather than your name or email address. You can read more about that on our <a href="%(privacy)s">privacy notice</a> and you can read the <a href="%(data)s">full documentation for that data collection</a>.
  • We make our documentation public so that anyone can verify what we say is true, tell us if we need to improve, and have confidence that we aren’t hiding anything.
  • That documentation is gobbledygook to me! Can you give it to me in plain English?
  • There are two categories of data that we collect by default in our release version of Firefox.
  • The first is what we call "technical data." This is data about the browser itself, such as the operating system it is running on and information about errors or crashes.
  • The second is what we call "interaction data." This is data about an individual's engagement with Firefox, such as the number of tabs that were open, the status of user preferences, or number of times certain browser features were used, such as screenshots or containers. For example, we collect this data in terms of the back button, that arrow in the upper left corner of your browser that lets you navigate back to a previous webpage in a way that shows us someone used the back button, but doesn’t tell what specific webpages are accessed.
  • Do you collect more data in pre-release versions of Firefox?
  • Sort-of. In addition to the data described above, we receive crash and error reports by default in pre-release version of Firefox.
  • We may also collect additional data in pre-release for one of our <a href="%(link)s">studies</a>. For example, some studies require what we call “web activity data” data, which may include URLs and other information about certain websites. This helps us answer specific questions to improve Firefox, for example, how to better integrate popular websites in specific locales.
  • Mozilla’s pre-release versions of Firefox are development platforms, frequently updated with experimental features. We collect more data in pre-release than what we do after release in order to understand how these experimental features are working. You can opt out of having this data collected in preferences.
  • But why do you collect any data at all?
  • If we don’t know how the browser is performing or which features people use, we can’t make it better and deliver the great product you want. We’ve invested in building data collection and analysis tools that allow us to make smart decisions about our product while respecting people's privacy.
  • Data collection still bugs me. Can I turn it off?
  • Yes. User control is one of our data privacy principles. We put that into practice in Firefox on our <a href="%(settings)s">privacy settings page</a>, which serves as a one-stop shop for anyone looking to take control of their privacy in Firefox. You can <a href="%(data)s">turn off data collection</a> there.
  • We are big believers of data minimization and not asking for things we don't need.
  • You don't need an account to use Firefox. <a href="%(accounts)s">Accounts</a> are required to sync data across devices, but we only ask you for an email address. We don't want to know things like your name, address, birthday and phone number.

  • You use digital advertising as part of your marketing mix. Do you buy people's data to better target your online ads?
  • No, we do not buy people's data to target advertising.
  • We do ask our advertising partners to use only first party data that websites and publishers know about all users, such as the browser you are using and the device you are on.
  • Well, it seems like you really have my back on this privacy stuff.
