This is very scary

I was watching a couple PS5 game play videos on Youtube so I open a new tab because I was going to type " When will PS5 be cheaper " well I typed when will and the first suggestion that came down was " When will PS5 be cheaper "

Hello there. I assume It's not Firefox. Whenever you visit a website, they usually want you to accept their cookies & track your activity. Hence the ads. And it's not only you, others also might've searched "When will PS5 be cheaper" so it becomes the Prioritized suggestion.
