STOP forcing browser/plugin/extensions to run: Google, Bing, Amazon, DuckDuckGo, eBay, Wikipedia, and whatever else you are forcing down our throats

Several people have complained and NOBODY is listening. I specifically switched to FF so I don't have to deal with intrusive sites. FF I thought claimed to be UNLIKE GOOGLE and was more "private," so why are you putting in a Google browser/plugin/extension and forcing it to run on our PC's? I have enough crap on it taking up MEMORY and slowing it down, don't force anything people do NOT want. Just because these might be popular with many does NOT mean everybody wants it. Get rid of Google, Bing, Amazon, DuckDuckGo, eBay, Wikipedia, and WHATEVER else you are forcing us to run on FF.

Does FF have an agreement or partnering with these companies to TRACK US where ever we go on the internet? Looks like it. Per Wikipedia: DuckDuckGo earns revenue by serving ads from the Yahoo-Bing search alliance network and through affiliate relationships with Amazon and eBay. OK, so we have 4 of those And this at https://www.comparitech.com/blog/vpn-privacy/best-private-search-engine: DuckDuckGo displays ads for affiliate sites in the right sidebar, which is a little less aggressive than Google which presents ads at the top of search results. It earns additional profits from commissions from sites like Amazon and eBay, so you may want to be wary if those pop up a lot in search results. Also: As DuckDuckGo’s CEO, Gabriel Weinberg, explains in a Quora answer, the search engine does use your IP address to serve local results.

Why is FF pushing these sites when many of us do NOT use them nor want them? Why don't you add them as extensions where you can CHOOSE it if you wish? I found instructions on how to delete them in the FF File Explorer folder because merely deleting them in Settings does NOT remove them permanently as FF has them "hidden," however, they just come back and it messed up other add-ons. ALSO, these add-on's you are forcing on us is TAKING SPACE on my PC and I resent that.

I do NOT want to HIDE THEM, I want them REMOVED PERMANENTLY.

My computer crashed and I'm trying to start installing my old bookmarks on the new computer. I can't list bookmarks in the left margin as I did with my old computer. It used to give you that option but no longer. Further, I can't list any more then a few bookmarks on the upper horizontal toolbar. What am I missing?

I'm having a continuing problem w/ my auto-fill preference for logins and passwords not being saved. The checked box for auto-fill logins and passwords doesn't stay checked. I ALREADY RESET FIREFOX, BUT THIS DIDN'T FIX THE PROBLEM. I don't want to reset again as I think it created problems with one of my accounts. Are there other solutions I can try?

Just reinstalled my pc, never used a sync from file I always do it that way.

1. download ff 2. login 3. synced

it fails at step 3, it just doesn't do anything at all, all I can see is my profile picture but nothing else, no bookmarks, no history, no addons, anything

I tried to sync on with my mobile, but there is literally nothing to sync.. I never used a backup file or anything

what should I do to get my addons and bookmarks back?

thanks

Windows 10 Pro 20H2, Firefox 91.0.1

In a specific webpage, Horizontal scrollbar shows up and extends or shrink how I move my cursor. On the infinite scroll, As long as I keep moving my cursor, The page goes forever. It supposed to end.

I've tried it with Safe mode and no change. Same behavior. Other browsers are working fine.

I'm not sure if this is a page specific issue or not. Most webpages are fine except for that. Here's the page source in case you need to test:

Is anything going to be done about the compatibility issues with Big Sur? I cannot control website preferences, all color has been lost from buttons and menus, regular controls in this browser do not function appropriately. Shall anything be done? How will users know if a fix has been completed? And I saw no answers to the other three submissions requesting help with these Big Sur issues.

And there is no confirming color or check mark when I check the request to receive an email if there IS a response, so how am I to know if it has been effective. (I noticed this same issue on other websites.)

Starting about a month ago, Firefox will not play most videos, I just get the eternal spinning circle. I had made no changes to my Windows 10/Firefox set up either. Sometimes, for just the blink of an eye, an error message will appear at the top of the video, but so fast I can't read it, something about can't play image. I have gone into Troubleshoot Mode, to no effect. I "refreshed" Firefox, no difference. However, when I switched to Google Chrome and tried to play the same video (an MSN video, sb a piece of cake), it worked. Well, that kinda informs me the problem is with You, not Me. Here's the web site of which I speak (though there are countless others): https://www.msn.com/en-us/video/tunedin/climate-change-scientists-say-the-gulf-stream-may-collapse-sooner-than-thought/vi-AANjTwK Knock yerself out.

It's difficult for me to describe, but you can check in the picture I attached. There is a slight shadow from other apps/tabs I have open.

At first I thought it was a problem on my laptop screen but apparently it only happened on my dark theme Firefox. When I change my windows background to solid black, I don't have this problem.

How to solve this problem? my firefox version 91.0 (64-bit) Windows 10
