To enable or disable the Do Not Track feature in Firefox, follow these steps:

  1. Open Firefox on your computer.
  2. Click on the menu button (three horizontal lines) located in the top-right corner of the browser window.
  3. From the drop-down menu, select "Preferences" (on macOS) or "Options" (on Windows).
  4. In the preferences/options tab, navigate to the "Privacy & Security" section on the left side.
  5. Scroll down to the "Enhanced Tracking Protection" section.
  6. Under "Enhanced Tracking Protection," you will find three options: "Standard," "Strict," and "Custom." By default, it is usually set to "Standard."
  7. Click on the drop-down menu next to "Content Blocking" and select "Custom."
  8. Once you choose "Custom," you will see a checkbox labeled "Send websites a 'Do Not Track' signal that you don't want to be tracked." Check this box to enable the Do Not Track feature. If you uncheck it, the feature will be disabled.
  9. Close the preferences/options tab, and the changes will automatically take effect.

Note: "Standard" and "Strict" modes of Enhanced Tracking Protection offer additional privacy features but do not explicitly send a Do Not Track signal to websites. However, enabling Do Not Track in the Custom mode will activate the same feature.

Keep in mind that while enabling Do Not Track may request websites not to track your online activity, it doesn't guarantee that all websites will honor this request. It depends on individual website policies and practices.
