I am posting this as a diary, because I don’t want my concern to fall by the wayside in a comment.
I use Mozilla Firefox. I just connected to the internet via my provider, and, got a message that I needed to update my “advertising” opt out, which I did through Firefox. For the first time, I got a message that I needed to opt into Taco 3.0 in order to block these 4 sites, I guess that is what you would call them. It listed-
I closed out, and did not opt in. Another page came up when I clicked on Redstate that said-
There are privacy concerns at Redstate. Redstate has 4 tracking sites in use, the ones I listed above.
Then there was a message-
No logins or passwords yet:what personal information they store is unknown. You IP address is ———, and they know you’re close to Lewisbury, PA using Firefox on WinXP. Then there is a box to click for “Block 3rd party tracking of Cookies. There was alot more further down from that, but I was not able to page down from there. What the heck is going on? Am I the only one to get that message. I use Avast for Virus prevention, and it has been very problamatic lately.
I know I am probably paranoid lately with the moves from the FCC, but is there some reason that Mozilla Firefox is putting that message out?
