Mozilla Firefox 102 is released with a new privacy feature that strips parameters from URLs that are used to track you around the web. Many companies utilize custom URL query parameters technique to track clicks on links.

With the release of Firefox 102, Mozilla has added the new Query Parameter Stripping feature that automatically strips various query parameters used for tracking from URLs when you open them, whether that be by clicking on a link or simply pasting the URL into the address bar.

How to enable the new privacy feature

To enable Query Parameter Stripping, go into the Firefox Settings, click on Privacy & Security and then change Enhanced Tracking Protection to Strict. If you enable this feature and find that sites are not working correctly, just set it back to Standard (disable this feature).
