Facebook has recently begun injecting a fbclid parameter into all outgoing URLs. This is, imo, a bit of a dick move. So this addon strips that param from all url requests.

What is nofbclid?

nofbclid is a Firefox add-on that eliminates the fbclid parameter injected by Facebook into outgoing URLs. It provides a simple solution to strip this unwanted parameter and enhance your browsing experience.

Doesn't work in FF 76.0.1 - fbclid is still there in the requested URL

Glad I found this! The Privacy Browser by Soren Stoutner has this as a built-in feature, so I'm glad you're providing it as an addon for FF. In the Privacy Browser, it not only offers the option to remove "&fbclid=" and "?fbclid=", but also "&fbadid=" and "?fbadid=". Then there is Google Analytics ("&utm_" and "?utm_"), and Twitter's AMP redirection ("?amp=1"). Maybe you can extend this your addon to one mighty ulr-cleaner… :D

Works as stated. I sometimes have to manually remove them when I wasn't to share a link as I don't want this tracking id in it. GREAT JOB DEV!!! :-)
