At this time, Firefox is making itself popular as being a privacy alternative to the data swallowing Chrome browser of Google, but this thing is coming out that the browser was having a very big privacy flaw which was fixed by its competitors many years ago, such as Chrome, Opera, Edge and more.
This thing is coming out that at the same time as rest of the browsers disabled extensions in Private Browsing mode by default, Firefox is not doing that, enabling the Amazon extension, for instance, to keep a track of your private shopping at times when you wished very much that the retail giant was not doing that.
As a bug report on Mozilla.org says, finally the company is dealing with the problem with a change which is also supposed to be backported to Firefox 66.
By default, the company is supposed to disable extensions and enable the users to choose whether they wish to still have the extensions on condition that the users trust them enough.
Firefox is also going to give a warning message to the users regarding the coming change and it is to give them the choice to manage their extensions.
Obviously it is a great step which Mozilla has finally taken to address this problem, but we are wondering why they took such a long time to do it.
