Do Not Track from Abine.com is a free utility that does a wonderful job blocking trackers. Abine has other fee-based apps that are very interesting and priced decently. However, DNT (Do Not Track) is FREE.

Additionally, Rapport from Trusteer is an outstanding utility used particularly by banks. It too is FREE.

Sometimes FREE can actually BE worthwhile. These two apps certainly are.

re: Firefox Promises Privacy Patch Against Tab Spying
I really dislike this new browser feature, aside from the security issues. Thanks for the tip on turning it off. However, the description is a bit confusing.

"Users can also switch back to using blank new tab screens by clicking the square icon in the top right corner of the browser," she said.

This icon is on the screen that shows you the most visited pages. It's a little icon that looks like a checkerboard. At first I was searching at the top of the browser itself, in the toolbar area. It's not there. It's directly under the toolbar when you open a new tab.
