Firefox now has better tracking protection that doesn’t block logging in to websites using Facebook as it used to

Firefox 90 was released this week, and one of the novelties that came with it is better support for logging in using a Facebook username and password when the browser is in “strict” mode or a private window.

SmartBlock first appeared in Firefox 87 which was released in March this year, as a built-in tracking protection feature. What didn’t work well with SmartBlock at the time was support for logging in to websites using Facebook, which the updated SmartBlock, version 2.0, should fix.

Many people like to use the ability to log in to sites using Facebook.

Before Firefox 90, if you used Private Browsing, when you clicked the “Continue with Facebook” button to sign in, logging in would fail because Firefox blocked the Facebook script by default, because a Mozilla Disconnect partner also put Facebook domains on their list. famous trackers. When Facebook scripts are blocked, it is logical that logging in to websites using Facebook will not work either.

“SmartBlock 2.0 in Firefox 90 now eliminates this login issue. Initially, all Facebook scripts are blocked, just like before, which ensures the protection of your privacy. But when you click on the “Continue with Facebook” button to log in, SmartBlock responds quickly by unblocking the Facebook login script just in time for the login to continue unhindered. Mozilla explained.

Mozilla said that Firefox will continue to block Facebook trackers on all websites where the user has not logged in.

For Windows users, Firefox will now update in the background, as Firefox 90 checks for a new version every 7 hours. To enable background updates, users should allow automatic installation of updates and check the “When Firefox is not running” box.
