It would be worlds less than Chrome and Edge.

There are 2 programs you can use that block hundreds of telemetry addresses that Win10 connects to https://www.safer-networking.org/spybot-anti-beacon/ https://www.oo-software.com/en/shutup10

Not even going to touch Google and Chrome together it would be worse than the above as Google makes it's money by selling it all.

Firefox also depends where live as Firefox Europe goes by standards set by the EU. : Below are US. https://www.mozilla.org/en-US/privacy/ https://www.mozilla.org/en-US/privacy/principles/ https://wiki.mozilla.org/Firefox/Data_Collection And a page from Google search comparing Firefox vs Chrome : https://www.google.com/search?client=firefox-b&q=firefox+privacy+vs+chrome&sa=X&ved=0ahUKEwjfy7ac-aHcAhVozVQKHeBhAoIQ1QIImAEoBQ&biw=1874&bih=866
