[GOT7 - You Are] Comeback Stage - M COUNTDOWN 171019 EP.545
Facebook Container works by isolating your Facebook identity into a separate container that makes it harder for Facebook to track your visits to other websites with third-party cookies.
How does it work?
Prompt to install enhanced extension is the first thing you'll see
Installing this extension closes your Facebook tabs, deletes your Facebook cookies, and logs you out of Facebook. You can log in and use Facebook normally when in the Facebook Container. If you click on a non-Facebook link or navigate to a non-Facebook website in the URL bar, these pages will load outside of the container. Clicking Facebook Share buttons on other browser tabs will load them within the Facebook Container.
You should know that using these buttons passes information to Facebook about the website that you shared from. Which website features will not function? Because you will be logged into Facebook only in the Container, embedded Facebook comments and Like buttons in tabs outside the Facebook Container will not work.
This prevents Facebook from associating information about your activity on websites outside of Facebook to your Facebook identity. In addition, websites that allow you to create an account or log in using your Facebook credentials will generally not work properly.
Because this extension is designed to separate Facebook use from use of other websites, this behavior is expected. Facebook still will have access to everything that you do while you are on facebook.
Rather than stop using a service you find valuable, we think you should have tools to limit what data others can obtain. This extension focuses on limiting Facebook tracking, but other ad networks may try to correlate your Facebook activities with your regular browsing.
What data does Mozilla receive from this extension? Mozilla does not collect data from your use of the Facebook Container extension. We do receive the number of times the extension is installed or removed.
Learn more about Containers on our support site. Known Issues When Facebook is open and you navigate to another website using the same tab by entering an address, doing a search, or clicking a bookmarkthe new website will be loaded outside of the Container and you will not be able to navigate back to Facebook using the back button in the browser. In an effort to preserve your existing Container set up and logins, this add-on will not include the additional protection to keep other sites out of your Facebook Container.
If you would like this additional protection, first unassign facebook. What version of Firefox do I need for this? This extension works with Firefox 57 and higher on Desktop. Note that it does not work on other browsers and it does not work on Firefox for mobile. This may be occurring because you have set a preference or installed an extension that causes your browser to obscure its user agent for privacy or other reasons.
How does this compare to the Firefox Multi-Account Containers extension?
Fix problems with Facebook games, chat and more
Facebook Container specifically isolates Facebook and works automatically. Firefox Multi-Account Containers is a more general extension that allows you to create containers and determine which sites open in each container.
You can use Multi-Account Containers to create a container for Facebook and assign facebook. Multi-Account Containers will then make sure to only open facebook. So users of Multi-Account Containers need to take a bit extra care to make sure they leave the Facebook Container when navigating to other sites. With Multi-Account Containers, you will have to assign these in addition to facebook. Facebook Container also deletes Facebook cookies from your other containers on install and when you restart the browser, to clean up any potential Facebook trackers.
Multi-Account Containers does not do that for you.
