What is Firefox Suggest?
Firefox Suggest is a new feature that serves as a trustworthy guide to the better web, surfacing relevant information and sites to help you accomplish your goals.
Firefox Suggest provides website suggestions in the address bar. When contextual suggestions are enabled Firefox Suggest uses your city location and search keywords to make contextual suggestions from Firefox and our partners, while keeping your privacy in mind.
You can customize your Firefox Suggest experience by managing the types of suggestions you receive, and the data used to serve them up, in your Settings.
What’s On by default
Beginning in Firefox 92, you will receive suggestions from things like history, bookmarks, and open tabs (which have always been on by default), as well as new, relevant suggestions from our trusted partners based on what you’re searching for. No new data is collected, stored, or shared to make these new recommendations. Examples of Firefox Suggest results — includes traditional suggestions like browsing history and open tabs, as well as new suggestions from our partners
We are rolling out a new type of even smarter suggestions. You might notice a message inviting you to enable these new suggestions the next time you install or update Firefox.
These suggestions — which aim to enhance and speed up your searching experience — are only enabled when you provide access to new data types. We source and partner with trusted providers to serve up contextual suggestions related to your query from across the web.
To enable these enhanced suggestions, simply click on Allow suggestions when you receive our notification prompt or Customize in settings to choose the experience you want and the types of suggestions that will show in the address bar.
What data is shared if you enable contextual suggestions?
To help you find information faster, Firefox Suggest uses a service provided by us to offer relevant suggestions to the text you are typing. When contextual suggestions are enabled, Mozilla receives your search queries. When you see or click on a Firefox Suggest result, Mozilla collects and sends your search queries and the result you click on to our partners through a Mozilla-owned proxy service. The data we share with partners does not include personally identifying information and is only shared when you see or click on a suggestion. To learn more about how Mozilla handles data, click here.
Who Are Mozilla’s partners?
Privacy is fundamental to Mozilla's mission and we only work with partners that meet our privacy standards for Firefox. For sponsored results, our prefered partner is adMarketplace. We also provide results from Wikipedia. Results from Wikipedia are not sponsored.
