firefox automatically sends some data to mozilla so that we can improve your experience.

Posted

i tried asking this in a similar topic and got no response and marked as answered so ill ask it again. i already had 'Enable Telemetry' and 'Enable Crash Reporter' disabled but i still got the popup. i'm not sure why firefox is saying it's automatically sending mozilla data when both options are disabled.

it used to say

will you help improve mozilla firefox by sending information about performance, hardware, usage and customizations to mozilla?

but that was changed to

firefox automatically sends some data to mozilla so that we can improve your experience.

this makes me think firefox is still sending data regardless. so as long as both of those options are disabled firefox is not sending ANY info about me? if that's the case mozilla really needs to update the message. privacy policies are usually so vague and shadily written by lawyers that they are just about useless.

Firefox 20 has a new message to prompt you to check your settings. This is in preparation for a future feature called health reporting, but currently the only categories are the same old ones: telemetry and crash data.

I just got this message popup at the bottom of the screen, and both options are disabled. If it's in preparation for a future message then why does it say SOME data IS sent to mozilla and not some data will be send to mozilla in the future? Do I have to blacklist *.mozilla.* to ensure no data is sent or what?

Did you check the settings?

Yes and they were already disabled when the message came up from the original post.

Hi nothanks2u, you have already turned off the only two kinds of data sharing that exist in Firefox 20. My guess would be that when health reporting finally get into a release version of Firefox, you'll see that reminder bar again.
