Update Plug-ins


It is important to update your plug-ins regularly. Hackers usually take advantage of vulnerabilities in the plug-ins. Common plug-ins such as Adobe Flash Player, Java are often targeted.


The best thing you can do is update all the plug-ins on a regular basis. Plug-in manufacturers publish new updates to improve security, fix bugs and vulnerabilities.Periodically check plug-in websites for new updates and patches. Mozilla itself offers Plug-in Checker to update the plug-ins whenever required.


Do Not Track Technology


Firefox is moving ahead with the “Do not track technology”. This technology blocks the most common forms of Internet tracking.


Ad selling groups spark hot debates and shed light on the importance of tracking. These advertising groups made intense resistance because they are delivering targeted ads by tracking web behavior of the users. The development team is working on tools to limit access of the cookies.


Bottomline
