Is there even a single website left on this planet left that does not have a deal with google or facebook? I mean im here at firefox support to push my privacy and while i do that im being tracked by google. Ironic right?! What even is the reason "mozilla org - non profit organisation" allowed google to install their trackers here, money? Source: https://pagexray.fouanalytics.com/q/support.mozilla.org

support.mozilla.org static-media-prod-cdn.itsre-sumo.mozilla.net user-media-prod-cdn.itsre-sumo.mozilla.net stats.g.doubleclick.net www.google-analytics.com www.googletagmanager.com location.services.mozilla.com

The last four urls appear to be trackers..

Dont get me wrong. Mozilla Firefox is great browser but some things dont seem well. What is the logic using a "privacy browser" that comes with google as search engine? That is privacy one the left hand and tracking on the right hand. Ofcourse it's very easy to change the search engine and you mozilla does this because of money, i get it... but still you get my point? Basically... google is tracking when, where, and whoever they can to collect, analyse and sell data of individual human beings. And basically... Mozilla takes that bloody money from google to create a privacy seach engine, ironic right?! Anyone got any toughts on this?

And honestly, while i have been using Firefox for years, i feel that firefox has changed alot and i am not sure if i can trust mozilla anymore. There are multiple reasons for that. 1 - The partnership with google (ok i get it, its the money) 2 - Telemetry active by default... 3 - Pushing pocket and sync... 4 - New cringe modern style that looks similar to bigtech like google or instagram. I man look at the firefox logo, what the hell happened? This doesn't even look like firefox anymore... Honestly! Look at it! The old Fox was amazing, now it just looks like garbage, and after all this is not just my opinion but it is the very truth.

Take a look at this: https://reports.exodus-privacy.eu.org/en/reports/org.mozilla.firefox/latest/

                               https://reports.exodus-privacy.eu.org/en/reports/com.brave.browser/latest/

This i firefox VS brave in terms of privacy. brave appears to have zero trackers while firefox has 3... Those are only the mobile app/apk versions, i dont know if that also goes for the desktop installer, do you? If firefox desktop also has those trackers i would like to know how to block them.

I mean look at the screenshots i attached... The edit option is missing for the original question but it is available for my comment, why is that? Is that a bug or what? Can any admin correct the miss-spelling or will it remain a blame?
