The stores of all popular browsers are packed with VPN extensions which allow users to take advantage of some of the best services of this type directly from their favorite browsers without having to rely on system-wide software solutions.

Among them, there’s Private Internet Access, a cross-browser extension that offers its users direct access to one of the world’s best and oldest VPN providers on the market. PIA has a rich and long history of “unblocking” the Internet for users all around the world helping them defeat censorship and various unfair Internet-related georestrictions.

Private Internet Access for Firefox aims to bring all the VPN platform’s functionality at the fingertips of all Mozilla users through a very user-friendly package. It can be installed in a matter of seconds directly from the Firefox Add-ons store, and it’s designed so that even the most novice of users can quickly get to grips with what it has to offer.

Once installed, the extension resides in the browser’s toolbar, one the right side of the address bar from where users can effortlessly turn the service on or off via a straightforward switch.

The extension determines the current region automatically, but users can easily select a new one from the main window. This is one area where Private Internet Access shines since it provides its users with a plethora of other virtual locations around the world.

Additionally, the extension allows users to sort the locations based on either their name or their latency. The most-used locations can be easily added to and later accessed from a typical Favorites list. Users are sure to also appreciate the fact that this little extension boasts a wide range of customization features. They can customize the extension's security, privacy, and tracking prevention features from the dedicated Settings section.

Other noteworthy customization features include two UI themes (Dark and Light), a Debug mode, and various options for UI language including English, German, French, Italian, Polish, Portuguese, and Spanish, to name a few. Besides all the basic features one might expect from a tool such as this (IP cloaking, data encryption, etc.), Private Internet Access for Firefox also boasts a feature called WebRTC blocking.

To conclude, Private Internet Access for Firefox is a minimalist, yet highly efficient extension for all Firefox users looking for a popular VPN service which they can access directly from their favorite browser.
