Mozilla plans on adding a new dedicated social tracking protection component to their tracker protection system. This feature is currently under development, but is targeted for the Firefox 70 release.

According to a Mozilla bug report, a tracker protection for social sites will be moved into its own category named "Social media trackers". Based on mockups found by BleepingComputer, social tracking protection will be enabled by default in the Standard setting, but Firefox will not aggressively block all trackers that could break the functionality of a site.
