Enable IE9 Like Tracking Protection in Firefox With Do Not Track Plus Add-on

A key security feature of Microsoft’s newest browser Internet Explorer 9 (IE9) is Tracking Protection, which is designed to prevent third-party sites from tracking your web activity to monitor your behavior and target you with ads, spam emails, etc. The latest Firefox 4 has also similar feature called Do Not Track to protect your privacy.
However, as in IE9, Firefox 4 (RC) has no option to add individual tracking protection list (TPL) online (I am not sure that Firefox 4 requires additional individual tracking list).


[IE9 Tracking List]

 However, the Firefox add-on Do Not Track Plus can implement the same IE9 Tracking Protection in Firefox. It is very easy to implement in Firefox and can add individual TPL list from third parties.

Just install the add-on from here. From the Do Not Track Plus option, click TPL list status (at bottom) to add individual tracking lists from http://ie.microsoft.com/testdrive/Browser/TrackingProtectionLists/.


From the option menu, you can also manually add websites that you do not want to track your activities (black lists) and that you are OK to track (white list).

Tracking protection list tells websites and companies who run them that ‘you don’t want to be tracked as you browse their sites’. Do Not Track Plus can be install from here.
