Firefox 67.0.1 offers enhanced tracking protection

Mozilla has released a security update for its browser blocking third-party trackers.

Firefox 67.0.1 is the first minor update to version 67 available for all platforms. This security update improves tracking protection. The Firefox Enhanced Tracking Protection (EPT) blocks third-party tracking cookies that are on their blocking list. Plus, it offers updates for Facebook Container, Firefox Monitor and Lockwise.

The ETP is now enabled by default with a fresh installation of Firefox 67.0.1. In earlier versions the tracking protection was not activated by default and had to be turned on manually by the user.

Those users who have already installed Firefox 67 and now get the update will have to activate the EPT manually. In later version updates is should get activated by default.
