Turning on Tracking Protection is just a button toggle away. There are some really good privacy-protecting add-ons like uMatrix, Privacy Badger, uBlock Origin etc. available for Firefox.
I feel like every time I install Firefox, it asks me if I want to allow telemetry. I always disable it, but with a little twinge of guilt... I mean, they collect it because it's useful, right? Presumably it has helped them build and improve a great and popular browser. I'm glad some people leave it on, and I don't think it's a hidden option.

@bob @njoseph @dbuntinx @aral thanks for this heads-up. I honestly git to know about the not tracking feature from Firefox itself and since then it has been on. Nevertheless does this means I'm clear from any data collection? Or are they still collecting something and for what purpose? I honestly like and support Mozilla due to projects like Firefox but also other things they do to help standards; internet privacy; education..
