Every time Firefox updates it keeps re-enabling settings on its own.

Specifically 2 settings on the general tab keep enabling themselves in the "browsing" section, "Recommend extensions as you browse" and "Recommend features as you browse"

I have disabled these settings dozens of times now, and every time Firefox updates it keeps re-enabling these 2 settings on its own.

Just now I updated to v128.0 and these 2 settings turned themselves on again.

Why is Firefox not respecting my settings? Why is Firefox allowed to modify my settings without my permission?

I have deleted and reinstalled Firefox already. I don't use profiles and am not signed into the browser, so no settings are getting carried over that way.

After stupidly updatig Firefox, I found it DID NOT save my preferences and former settings. I went through Settings and set everything to what I think I had before, but now every, and I mean EVERY website is displaying ads that were not there before. I am uninstalling Firefox as soon as this page is exited and will be using Edge from now on. At least with MS, I know they are going to do their level best to annoy me. I expected better from Firefox. Bye!

I have created a firefox plugin, whose job is to get the cookie from the server and set it for a particular website. I have plugin with same logic for chrome as well. For firefox, I need to sometimes toggle the permissions to make it work, but suddenly the plugin has stopped working. Its not even working even with toggling the permissions, earlier this plugin was working fine. The similar plugin for chrome works perfectly well, and for that I dont need to change or toggle any permissions. I am not able to identify the issue. It would be great if someone could help me with this.

Occasionally, and typically only after a reboot, Firefox starts consuming a significant amount of CPU time. This typically goes on for several minutes, and if I close and reopen Firefox, the process begins again. It's enough CPU that the fans kick on high through most of the process, and considering I'm only opening the browser (not even switching tabs to actively load any other pages), I don't know why it would do this. Similarly, if it were related to typical startup behavior, why doesn't it do this every time?

While I generally trust that this is intentional and is unlikely the result of malware, I'd still like to know why Firefox does this at all and what it's doing. I'm not sure if I can collect any logs or get any other info about this. From process monitors, it appears to be the main executable that's consuming the additional CPU and not any of the isolated instances.

I collected the troubleshooting information, and saved it, but I am hesitant to share without knowing what type of information is contained (and I can see some sensitive stuff like file paths)

OS: Ubuntu 24.04 LTS (Linux 6.8.0-36-generic) Firefox Version: 127.0.2 (deb) Build ID: 20240624183754

My userid and password are pre-populated, thank you Firefox! So far so good.

But when I press the Login button, the page blinks to the Logout page, blinks again, and settles on the Logout page https://proofing.statefarm.com/login-ui/logout

Tried the same thing in Chrome, but this doesn't happen, and I am able to log in normally.
