    Mozilla plans to push the built-in Tracking Protection feature of the organization's Firefox web browser in the coming releases.

    Firefox will display Tracking Protection options in the browser's user interface more prominently, and Mozilla plans to rename the feature to Smart Blocking eventually as it will block other potentially unwanted content in the future as well.

    The organization launched Tracking Protection in 2014 in development versions of Firefox for desktop operating systems and Android, and integrated Tracking Protection in Firefox 39 Stable for the first time in a release version of the browser but in disabled state.

    Work continued on Tracking Protection and several new features landed: first the ability to select Tracking Protection lists, and then a Firefox Test Pilot experiment to gather additional date.

    It took until Firefox 57 to extend Tracking Protection to all browsing and not private browsing sessions.
