Even if not sent to Mozilla, it's accessible to the advertisers. I
could spend a long time explaining the various means, that web
advertisers track their users, ranging from crafting URL's and
metadata about the particular requests to 'web bugs', those little one
pixel transparent gifs so ubiquitous on the plethora of
websites with fake names used to collect the data.
The tiles are coming from Mozilla. So yes please explain how the
advertisers can track me through them if I don't click them.
