Mozilla releases new Firefox extension to stop Facebook from tracking you

A new browser extension called the "Facebook Container" lets Firefox users isolate their activity on Facebook to Facebook.com, making it more difficult to track users' actions elsewhere on the web. The hope is that someone searching for and booking a trip wouldn't then cause related ads to appear on your Facebook feed, for example, without having to go ahead and delete Facebook altogether.

The extension is far from a perfect solution. Mozilla noted in the blog post that websites that allowed a user to create an account and log-in through Facebook will not work properly within the Facebook Container (well actually that proves it is working correctly!!).
