Well, I wanted to provide PRIVATE feedback to the developers, but it appears that they are intent on avoiding that at all costs, continually steering me into posting on the public forum instead by not providing any other alternative. So be it. Remember, this was not my choice.

I was shocked to see the following results from Firefox's own presearch for the simple term "mom" (I was typing a longer word, but the presearch came out during my typing). I think your curation algorithms need some hard tweaking.

If you turn off the browsing history option in the Firefox Suggest settings, do these recommendations not appear?

If so, looking at your browsing history around the time your laptop was being repaired, do you see any abnormal entries?

Hi

What sources do you have turned in for Firefox Suggest? This support article will help - https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/firefox-suggest-faq#w_how-do-i-manage-my-firefox-suggest-settings

Do you use Firefox Sync to sync browsing history between that copy of Firefox and Firefox on another device?

I don't use Firefox Sync. Firefox Suggest is set to the default as I've never played with it. And before you ask, there's nothing in my browsing history even remotely related. In fact, there's barely anything in my browsing history, because I use Firefox only on rare occasion when another browser is having problems.

Before I go back to our developers, is there anyone else with access to your computer?

Besides the Apple Repair Depot in Houston last month, no.

Heavens, that's it. I thought when I clicked "Show All History" I was seeing all the history, but I see now there is more, older history you have to click again to see. And if I go back to that time frame, it looks like someone was having a party of one in Houston. Sorry to trouble you guys.
