    In Firefox Options Privacy & Security Browsing Privacy Content Blocking

    Choose what to block, if I choose trackers does that mean I can’t be seen by sites.

    No – the site you visit will always ‘see’ you. If you want that sort of obscurity then you would have to use a VPN.

    According to recent evidence most sites ignore ‘please do not track’ notices. GDPR theoretically helps stop that, but some sites act as amalgamators for multiple sites and make opt-out very difficult. I’m not sure these comply with the law, as they certainly do not comply with its spirit.
