Facebook Container isolates your Facebook activity from the rest of your web activity in order to prevent Facebook from tracking you outside of the Facebook website via third party cookies.

Sometimes you need to allow sites to access Facebook domains - like when they have "Login with Facebook" functionality. Or maybe you'd like to read a news article that includes some images from Instagram. This modification of Mozilla's original Facebook Container adds the ability to whitelist domains from within the extension's toolbar icon, and remove them from the whitelist once you're done.
User reviews
Works as intended. So far so good.

Seit der facebook container bei mir aktiviert ist funktioniert mein Zugang zu facebook nicht mehr, d. h. meine eMail wurde maskiert. zusätzlich funktionieren weitere Web Adressen bzw. -zugänge nicht mehr. Ich kann keine Einstellung finden, um diesen facebbok container wieder zu deaktivieren. ich bin akkreditierter Fachjournalist und benötige meine "saubere" und nicht maskierte eMailadresse wieder. Bitte teilen Sie mir mit, wie ich diese fehlkonstruktion von facebook container zeitnah wieder loswerde. MFG Dr. Werner Ratnikow,

Risk impact

Better Facebook Container requires a number of risky permissions that can potentially harm your browser and steal your data. Exercise caution when installing this add-on. Review carefully before installing. We recommend that you only install Better Facebook Container if you trust the publisher.

Risk impact measures the level of extra permissions an extension has access to. A low risk impact extension cannot do much harms, whereas a high risk impact extension can do a lot of damage like stealing your password, bypass your security settings, and access your personal data. High risk impact extensions are not necessarily malicious. However, if they do turn malicious, they can be very harmful.

Risk likelihood

Better Facebook Container has earned a fairly good reputation and likely can be trusted.

Risk likelihood measures the probability that a Firefox add-on may turn malicious. This is determined by the publisher and the Firefox add-on reputation on Firefox Browser Add-ons, the amount of time the Firefox add-on has been around, and other signals about the Firefox add-on. Our algorithms are not perfect, and are subject to change as we discover new ways to detect malicious extensions. We recommend that you always exercise caution when installing a Firefox add-on, especially ones with higher risk impact and/or higher risk likelihood.
