Adblock solve this problem by just blocking these third parties. another danger of these third parties is FoxAcid codes! Facebook button is the best place for FoxAcid calls. please insert adblock by default on TBB package, if not explain why?

AdBlock doesn't actually block ads from loading in the browser, it only
blocks the browser from showing them to you. So, there could be some
small page rendering speed increase from using AdBlock, but no gain in
anonymity AFAIU.
