Why does Firefox feed so much data to Google?

A while back, I discovered a Google plugin hidden within Firefox. I figured maybe one thing was fine until I realized that Widevine actually did some bad stuff to your OS, since it needs to access the internal OS to block screenshots and screen recordings. Today, I discovered that geolocation also uses Google servers, and in the process of turning it off I also discovered that there is this "Safe Browsing" that also uses Google. Looking even further, even some of the privacy things redirect to Google. I haven't even mentioned that the default search engine is Google. Even if Google paid you to make them the default, you could create a prompt on the first launch asking for search engine, with Google selected by default but another search engine (like DDG) recommended. All of this Google software is likely sucking on our data.

Now while writing this post, I noticed something even worse. Why are Google servers on the filter whitelists? This is uncool. I understand, maybe your website needs to detect Firefox to function correctly, and antifingerprint would break it. But WHY GOOGLE? All of this seems to be going against the goal of privacy. How are you supposed to expect a random person to go directly to about:add-ons, disable Google Widevine, go to about:preferences, disable safe browsing, go to about:config, enter the "danger" zone confidently, and delete Google from the 10,000 times it appears in the config?

Hi. I'm a user of OpenVPN which uses TAP (a virtual network adapter) to establish VPN connections. Sometimes I need to switch VPN on/off when browsing websites, but I didn't find options like "select a network adapter to use" within Firefox. Currently the only solution is to connect/disconnect OpenVPN to switch VPN on/off, but it's quite inconvenient for me.

I've tried searching for add-ons about this, but a possible one named "FoxyProxy" has dropped this feature recently because of the changes about Firefox API, so I think my problem can be no longer solved by add-ons.

Any solutions to this? Can I have this feature provided by Firefox with updates if there isn't any workaround for now?

Hi,

I'm getting bored with firefox...

Spent 2 hours trying to find on internet or compare the about:config of my laptop/desktop to try to see what the problem.


on desktop on some website: when i click on a link, lets say an ssd deal for instance, i cannot reach the page and a small notification appears on right bottom corner (not below bookmarks like a popup) saying : "redirection canceled" and bring me back to the original page. on laptop same version of firefox (and same general settings) but no such problem, i started to compare each value in about:config but i stoped before becoming crazier.

whatever option i disable (website tracking) its still there, if i open in new private tab, the same.

So bored of spending so much time on some stupid option it seem i cannot have control over it, as i'm sure its just a simple value i have to change somewhere but cant find the info.

So please, if i was clear enough it my description, tell wich command i should change to get rid of it. Alternatively: is there a way to copy the config from one firefox to another? (like this i might copy config from laptop to desktop.

thx in advance for your eventual help

I want to enable two-factor authentication for my Firefox account. I did the standard steps at accounts.firefox.com. Everything seems to work except that the codes generated by Google Authenticator aren't accepted by accounts.firefox.com. I then tried Microsoft authenticator, with the same result. Then Authy, again same result.

Here are my steps. > Google Authenticator already installed on phone. It works with my Google account. > I used Mozilla Firefox to log-in at accounts.firefox.com on my laptop Steps at firefox.com: log-in > Click to enable two-step authentication > Click Add account on Google authenticator (on my phone) > Scan the QR code showing on laptop screen > Google Authenticator adds the account and displays a 6-digit code > Enter the code at accounts.firefox.com

Everything works except the last step. Accounts.firefox.com rejects the code every time. Same for every other authenticator app I tried.

I was working with my Internet Provider and in an attempt to solve and issue they had me delete my History, Cache, Cookies, and so on. After doing so, Firefox will no longer remember anything from my History. Every time Firefox closes it erases all of it. I have to login to my email 25 times a day now. I have changed all the settings that Help has listed and they have changed nothing. Please, Help.

I use a separate container for gmail, so google can't connect my gmail usage to google analytics showing up in other pages. But when I open a link from gmail, I would like it to go to a separate container, either one container per site, or just one big container for all links opened from gmail. For example, someone sends me a link to a nytimes.com article and when I click on it, I want to not have to type in my nytimes login again but I also want it to be separate from my gmail login. This seems not to be possible in vanilla firefox (am I wrong?) but is there an extension that allows this behavior? If my entire question is based on a naive idea of privacy, I'm open to hearing that too. :) Thanks in advance for any help.

I have this continuing request to update passwords and have seen a thread on this but have no duplicate passwords for any account.

The problem has another twist to it. There is a password set in the option that is not the one I have just used to sign in.The password is very long and repeatedly uses the text "padding ****"

Just wonder if anyone else has seen this?

I have problems with multiple sites that claim that third-party cookies are blocked and do not work even though though the Enhanced Tracking Protection is disabled for the site (the shield icon is grey and striked-through). In particular it is teams.microsoft.com and Instapaper (their saving bookmarklet sends me always to a site reading "enable unrestricted third-party cookie access for www.instapaper.com" - though this might be a different issue than Teams).

I have read https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/enhanced-tracking-protection-firefox-desktop?redirectslug=enable-and-disable-cookies-website-preferences&redirectlocale=en-US#w_how-to-tell-when-firefox-is-protecting-you and https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/websites-say-cookies-are-blocked-unblock-them (trying even to "forget" the teams website; not doing the full wipe out of everything).

How to troubleshoot / fix this? I am a technical person so I can dig into it if just somebody points me in the right direction...

Thank you!

When I try to log in to My BT, with correct details, I get a page come up with 'arcot authentication adapter controller'. It stays on this blank page and will not log me in. I am using W10 and FF 79.0.

If I enter the same details on my other PC, which uses Waterfox, it goes straight in.

Any help would be appreciated.

Hello. I am a developer and I'm trying to whitelist a website I'm currently working on from tracking protection in order to prevent blocking of xhr requests. The problem is that, although I have specifically disabled tracking protection for the domain, the resources are still blocked after refreshing tabs. Looking at the exceptions list I can see that it features https://client.enterprise but the intended domain is http, without any encryption. Could that cause the issue?
