6.3 Tracking Protection - privacy.donottrackheader.enabled


These settings instruct the browser to communicate the preference not to be tracked to websites to which it connects, and additionally attempt to block tracking.
Enabling Do Not Track instructs the browser to send an optional header in HTTP requests made from the app that indicates a preference not to be tracked by websites. This optional header is voluntary in nature, having no method to enforce adherence and providing no guarantee that web sites will honor the preference. However, a large number of websites do honor it so there is privacy benefit in enabling it.


Perform the following procedure:

* Open the mozilla.cfg file in the installation directory with a text editor

* Add the following lines to mozilla.cfg:

lockPref("privacy.donottrackheader.enabled", true);
lockPref("privacy.donottrackheader.value", 1);
lockPref("privacy.trackingprotection.enabled ", true);
lockPref("privacy.trackingprotection.pbmode", true);
