Include websites in Protections Dashboard

The Protections Dashboard is great, but I feel it could be improved by telling users which sites the trackers were on. It would make the information actionable, so users can block websites depending on the type/amount of trackers. In addition, I think it would be great to have an option to receive a notification if Firefox blocks certain trackers, especially Cryptominers, on a website.

Add iCloud Private Relay Support to Firefox iOS/macOS (if possible)

as the title said, iCloud Private Relay could be a massive jump for privacy for a lot of iOS users without the need for a VPN/Proxy. To quote Apple "Normally when you browse the web, information contained in your web traffic, such as your DNS records and IP address, can be seen by your network provider and the websites you visit. This information could be used to determine your identity and build a profile of your location and browsing history over time. iCloud Private Relay is...

floating tabs

Floating tabs are a major security issue and flaw in Firefox. Normally ads would be bypassed by the user but when these floaters detach they activate the contents of the tab automatically. That can activate malicious code or virus. You HAVE to make it possible to disable these automatic floating and only be used when used in a safe enviroment. There are more and more ads services and malicious sites and manipulators that are starting to catch on.

Junk mail - all time high

Greetings First, just want to acknowledge the quantum leap in ad-blocking starting 'long about v. 94 of Firefox - well done However, since v. 94, my email "junk" mailbox has taken a quantum leap in the number of spam emails I'm receiving - my browsing habits remain about same and in previous times I might get 20-30 junk emails PER MONTH - now its exceeding 100 PER DAY. Considering Firefox has been my primary browsers, I'm thinking there's something amiss with Firefox's current "safe and...

Disabling Telemetry

I understand why Firefox collects some data but why does it have to take so long to disable all of it by accessing preferences and about:config? It would make sense to introduce more visible settings in preferences to disable all data collection/telemetry. Some don't mind this data collection, some do, but ultimate, Firefox is also meant to be a  private web browser. You rather are a private browser, or not a private browser.

Disconnect is not enough

I understand this may be an idea that doesn't seem relevant at this particular time and a bit outdated, however I do believe it's worth discussing. Simply, Disconnect is not enough for ad and tracker blocking. Most users who want an enhanced experience need to install uBlock Origin, questioning the very concept of what is supposedly called Enhanced Tracking Protection. So unless Mozilla add more filters lists to improve their current tracking protecion it should simply be renamed to...

Disallow website who restrict password managers

Almost all the websites now suggest users to use a strong passwords while registering or changing passwords. But in the name of security many of them don't allow user to paste a password in the password box, due to which most of the password managers don't work and user has to write down the strong password he has generated and then manually type the password, even though user has invested in password managers. Mozilla and other browser developers can work with W3C  to make sure that...

Container tabs should work in private/incognito mode

Safari, the default browser for Apple computers, isolates each tab in its private mode for years now.This is very convenient when having to access multiple Slack accounts, or diagnosing a website by being logged in as test use and admin at the same time. Once tab is closed, associated history and cookies go with it. One of the reasons for having container tabs is to isolate their content from each other. As the container tabs documentation page (...
