If websites don't have to comply, as the article states, then what's the point? What does the feature do?

The point is that most sites will comply and even if they don't just use adblock to block ads that will leave tracking cookies or just clear your cookies more often.

I downloaded it, open it up on my favorite sites and then find out, that it does not support flash on my phone, a htc desire. What is it with all these browsers that cannot play flash content or do it badly. How comes the stock browser on my phone can do it. it may not be as fancy as firefox, but it just works. Also, like i really expect sites to comply with me asking them not to track me. Most of us would not know about opting out anyway.

Mozilla 5 uses up ALL my system resources! They really need to start working on the amount of memory their browser uses.
