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?

I am using Firefox on a 2013 Macbook Pro running Yosemite 10.10.5. Every week or so Firefox closes on its own. I will be using Firefox all week and then return to find that Firefox has closed and I can't restore my session. There is no crash report. Does anyone have an idea of what might be causing this to happen and what to do to prevent it? Is there a setting that I don't know about that limits session lengths? This does seem to happen at pretty regular intervals. It doesn't happen with other browsers or applications. Thanks.

My old Firefox lost the fox icon and gave the "page with crossed sticks" icon. I deleted Firefox, thinking I could just download a new copy. But when I did that, I was confronted with "Sync". I do not want to use Firefox on other devices, just my iMac. I want to click on the Firefox icon on my dock, type in what I want to find out about, and that's that. Instead, I get confronted with all kinds of gobblity-gook about Sync and can't even browse. Help!!!

Hello,

eg. at these websites: https://www.zetor-forum.de or https://www.hobby-gartenteich.de

I and also all other FireFox using members can't logout from and when we load the site, we mostly see older content instead of the new one. The behavoir come up wit FireFox v77 and we can reproduce at the above named sites eg.

The FF Dev-consol gives me no hint what kind of problem FF with this site has.

Other Browsers, like Chrome or Edge render the site with actual content and login/logout is without trouble possible.

So I come to my question: What can be the problem, that FF not render the newest content at this sites and let me not logout eg? I have no right idea, what we can do, that FF will be happy with our sites as bevor v77. What can I do to found the problem and what to fix it?

Both sites uses Xenforo 1.5.28 (latest), PHP 7.3.x, MariaDB 10.x, Redis Cache server side

I hope anybody can give me a hint, so I can do my best to solve it.

Best regards, Joachim

Hey, I'm using Firefox as my PDF reader and I need to do a lot of searching throughout documents. When I use CTRL+F to search for and highlight text, the found text is highlighted in a very light green color that does not contrast well with the white background of the page. Is there a way to manually change this color to make it contrast better so it is more noticeable? Thanks!

I have owned my Mac Book Pro since 2014 and I inadvertently re-installed Firefox without knowing a new profile would be created. I am not able to load my old profile into the new one. I can see the "old Firefox data" folder and have tried everything Firefox has to fix this but nothing is working. I have lost 6 years of bookmarks!

Anything other tricks to fix this? Thanks!

Hello All,

My browser does not seem to want to fill the screen on startup.

I do not want it to go into "full screen" mode, just to fill the whole screen so I do not have to drag the edges every time. The browser does not seem to remember that it was expanded to fill the whole screen when it closed down.

Does anyone know how to fix this?

Screenshot attached.

After using messenger with no problems for years, yesterday I tried to make calls (audio/video) in messenger and keep getting an error message that my "brower" doen't support them now. I have the latest verion of Firefox 78.02. Anyone else experiencing this?

It asks me to use either Firefox (which I obviously have, or chrome).

I switched to chrome and got the same error message when trying to make a call as well.

Thanks for any help.
