Why i am suddenly getting Google log-in requests when I first open some websites in my Firefox browser on Mac OS Monterey? This was not happening before; it has started in the past couple of weeks and is extremely annoying. I do everything possible to stop providing Google with any information about me. One of the ways I thought I was doing that was by using the Firefox browser. But apparently not, since Google is able to infiltrate the browser and ask for a sign-in. It is not possible that Google is doing this without Firefox/Mozilla awareness of it.

I noticed it on eBay sometime ago and it even happens in Safari.

If you have a Google account, you can choose not to receive the prompt. If you don't but have a content blocker you can use its annoyances lists to stop receiving the prompt. In the case of uBlock Origin, the lists are AdGuard Annoyances and uBlock filters - Annoyances.
