    Full agreemant for Telemetry and Heath Report, these are badly missing here.

    Regarding Crash Report: Per https://www.mozilla.org/en-US/legal/privacy/firefox.html#crash-reporter I would say that this is not automatic, it asks the user for permission.

    So strictly speaking it does not belong into this article. However I would suggest to add a section 'other data transmissions' and make a short mention there, because it probably is relevant for many of the people who read this article.

    Diagnostics Health Report Telemetry Crash Reports

    If we do update this article then we can link to Advanced panel - Accessibility, browsing, network, updates, and other advanced settings in Firefox (Health Report, Telemetry, and Crash Reports are all listed, along with "more info" links, under the "Data Choices Tab" section).
