Is it possible to send me non targeted ads meaning not based on my searches.

Posted

The main reason is that I only get info data and suggestions on things I already know.

Forgive my my tone and language for what comes next.

Holy mother of pearl, I have alladins lamp in my hands and all you can send me is targeted ads for crap you think I might want to throw a few shekels at!!! WHAT THE FLYING COITIS!

Can't somebody make an opt in button where you can send me the m ohust rand random stuff imaginable.

It's not like the sum total of all of our collective knowledge is in the palm of my hand and all I'm doing is anesthatising myself with porn.

Somebody please do something original even if it's only by accident.

Are you getting those ads from us (mozilla)? Can you explain the problem somehow easier to understand, without referencing to the Holy Mother of Pearl?

Question owner

Pardon me the hyperbole I was be being over dramatic.

It seem that most browsers have some form of tracking of my web movement so based on that they make educated guess about what to show me next. Yes? So you are showing me more of what I already know. I personally am both a chef and an insurance agent, I know this stuff well so why send me more data about that? I was asking if it was possible to have a button or a link that would lead me to something totally random. Because I can't go and watch for a new topic if I don't know it exists. You must have a vast sea of dat at you disposal I don't I have books tv daily life and poor use of punctuation. I read the news paper China Daily from China just for a different perspective it illustrates much. Imagine what the Firefox browser could teach me? Instead of passively waiting for me to ask it a poorly word and mis punctuated dumb question. Firefox teach me something new.

Please and Thank You

That would be magical

See Content blocking and Private Browsing - Use Firefox without saving history. Not logging to google would also help you.

  1. To block trackers for all browsing sessions, change the All Detected Trackers setting from Only in private windows to Always.
  2. Select the Third-Party Cookies checkbox to block third-party tracking cookies. To block all third-party cookies, change the setting from Trackers (recommended) to All third-party cookies (may cause websites to break). For more information, see Disable third-party cookies in Firefox to stop some types of tracking by advertisers.

Firefox is not responsible for the advertisements you see online. They are bought and sold by ad networks that track what you are interested in. You will need to opt out of targeted advertising to get random ads. See
