It seems interesting that “Clear URLs” might clean URLs of tracking pieces on the URLs. Is that something covered by other extensions, particularly by uBlock Origin?
For LibreWolf + uBlockOrigin users might seem unnecessary, but when sharing URLs with others, who one is not aware what browsers they use, then perhaps it’s useful. What do you think?
Welcome to the official community for LibreWolf.
LibreWolf is designed to increase protection against tracking and fingerprinting techniques, while also including a few security improvements. LibreWolf also aims to remove all the telemetry, data collection and annoyances, as well as disabling anti-freedom features like DRM.

it’s covered, yes. we enable a built-in list that strips some query params and we also add an extra one that strips more stuff (courtesy of the great https://github.com/DandelionSprout).
btw Firefox also has native query stripping now, so there’s one extra layer of protection! see https://privacytests.org/
Great to know, the test in the referenced URL:
I was sure Librewolf was protecting me, :) Now, the question goes in the sense of “Clear URLs” for copying URLs, not from the address bar, which I guessed Librewolf would have cleared for me, but from any URL referenced in web pages. I was sure if I just opened that URL from Librewolf, I’d be safe. Now, if instead I just copy the URL from any web page, and paste it in an email, a chat, etc, would Librewolf have cleared the URL copied as well? If so, then definitely “Clear URLs wouldn’t be necessary”.
Thanks a lot !
I have to try it,good idea…
