Firefox 69 launches with third-party cookies blocked

Firefox 69 launches with third-party cookies blocked. Mozilla launched Firefox 69 for Windows, Mac, Linux, and Android today. Continuing its push toward enhanced user data privacy, Firefox’s Enhanced Tracking Protection now blocks by default - users don’t have to turn it on after downloading the latest version - third-party tracking cookies from over 2,500 tracking domains (e.g. social, shopping, analytics, and many other sites). This feature was introduced back in June with some of its early sub-components finding their way into the product as early as Firefox 57 all the way back in November 2017. Note that the feature does not block first-party cookies, which are used, for example, to track site logins. Firefox claims 250 million active users. Venture Beat
