Mozilla Embraces Private Browsing with Tracking Protection in Firefox 42
by Chris Brook November 5, 2015 , 1:13 pm

Mozilla has pushed a feature in Firefox live that allows users to block certain page elements while browsing privately. The feature, Private Browsing with Tracking Protection, previously available to beta users, blocks third party page elements, such as ads, social network buttons, analytics, and other bits of information that could record a users’ browsing activity and profile users across multiple sites when its loaded by pages.

To turn on type 'about:config' in address bar; type 'trackingprotection' in search box; set 'privacy.trackingprotection.enabled' to true (double click on it.

Coming in Firefox 43 (now beta) tracking block list choice - basic or strict.
