Facebook Container version 2.0 expands functionality to prevent Facebook from tracking you on other websites that embed Facebook Likes, Shares and comments in their pages, greatly limiting Facebook’s ability to track your activities across the web.

hi @Maurice Naggar

this new feature is enabled by default or should I look at the Firefox setting to enable it?

Pretty cool, but I already block Facebook and all of its embedded entries across websites via my HOSTS file :P

Useful for people who actually use Facebook and don't want them tracking them I suppose.

Hello @Gt-truth:

It is not a Firefox feature.  If you select the first hotlink in Maurice's post, you will see this is a Firefox browser extension that must be downloaded/installed if you want its additional security protections.  If installed in Firefox, this Mozilla authored extension installs in an enabled mode.
