I had just noticed this earlier today.


Apparently it's a tool, not a plug-in.


It's still in testing, hence the Beta designation.



Firefox Hello Beta is a communication tool that lets you share tabs you’re browsing in Firefox with others and chat over video or text, free and without needing an account or login. Firefox Hello Beta in Windows, Mac and Linux helps you discuss and make decisions about anything online by sharing the website you’re browsing in your conversation. This makes it easier and faster to do things like to shop online together with friends, plan a vacation with the family or collaborate on work with a colleague.




I do remember something being mentioned about it from a few FFx upgrades ago, but didn't realise it had automatically been installed.


Will need to read more about it, although I doubt I'll be using it anytime soon.



If you go to the hamburger menu and select '+ Customise' you will see a smiley face icon for it that you can drag to the toolbar (if it's not on the tool bar already).

Worried about 'Tracking Files'? Worried about why some files come back after cleaning? See this link:
