Firefox 86 Gains Total Cookie Protection and Multiple Picture-in-Picture Views

Mozilla today released Firefox 86 for Macs, Windows, and Linux machines, introducing a new feature called Total Cookie Protection.

firefox total cookie protection
Total Cookie Protection is designed to stop cookies from tracking users across the web by introducing a "separate cookie jar for every website."

Total Cookie Protection is available as part of Firefox's Enhanced Tracking Protection functionality, and can be enabled when the browser is set to ETP Strict Mode. Mozilla says that Firefox now offers "strong, comprehensive protection" to combat cookie tracking.


The update also adds support for multiple picture-in-picture views, plus keyboard controls for fast forward and rewind. Firefox 86 is available now from the Mozilla website.

It'd be sweet for MR to do a feature comparing the privacy features of Safari, FF, Brave, Chrome (for example).

It's really an indictment of the web development industry that this wasn't how cookies were set up to operate from the start.
