Prevent Facebook from tracking you around the web using the Facebook Container Firefox extension

Facebook Container Extension by Mozilla,Prevents Facebook from tracking you around the web,This extension for Firefox helps you take control and isolate your web activity from Facebook,It works by isolating your Facebook identity into a separate container that makes it harder for Facebook to track your visits to other websites with third-party cookies,To help Firefox users have more control of their data on Facebook, Mozilla has created the Facebook Container Extension.


This extension helps you control more of your web activity from Facebook,Should you click on any Facebook Share buttons on other browser tabs it will load them within the Facebook container, You should know that when you’re using these buttons information will be sent to Facebook about the website that you shared from.

When you install The Facebook container it will delete your Facebook cookies and log you out of Facebook, The next time you visit Facebook it will open in a new blue-colored browser tab (aka “container tab”), In that tab you can login to Facebook and use it like you normally would,If you click on a non-Facebook link or navigate to a non-Facebook website in the URL bar, these pages will load outside of the container.

If you use your Facebook credentials to create an account or log in using your Facebook credentials, it may not work properly and you may not be able to login. Also, because you’re logged into Facebook in the container tab, embedded Facebook comments and Like buttons in tabs outside the Facebook container tab will not work, This prevents Facebook from associating information about your activity on websites outside of Facebook to your Facebook identity, So it may look a bit different than what you are used to seeing.
