Good day,

Everytime, since a few weeks, when I start a new session I have to accept cookies again with many websites. e.g. Google or De Telegraaf. Normally with the Telegraaf I have to log in just once, but since a few weeks I have to log in every time. In firefox settings I have "remember history" on.

Please Help Me With Unwanted Tracking and Advertising

Hello! Please give me instructions on how to permanently block / stop FireFox's "Welcome Pages".

I remember asking FireFox to block trackers and suppress as much advertising as possible. I never thought that FireFox would think that it was OK for FireFox itself to track me and send me unsolicited advertising.

I just received a FireFox "Welcome Page". This is something I don't recall ever seeing before. On the "Welcome" page I found a link that informed me that "Welcome Pages" are sent when people reach certain "Milestones". FireFox had to be tracking me in order to decide I'd reached a "Milestone" - although I have no idea what Milestone I reached.

On top of that, the so-called "Welcome Page" is actually an ADVERTISEMENT for an UNSOLICITED product offer to pay FireFox for something. What kind of "welcome" is that ?

All I can say is I'm very shocked that FireFox has taken advantage of making me feel I'm being protected from tracking and ads, which the browser seems to do quite well, EXCEPT for FireFox itself. That is shameful in my opinion.

Thank you in advance for your assistance helping me to go the extra mile and plug the tracking and ad leak I was not aware that I've had all of this time.

Was using my browser firefox, watching a yt vid and clicked to watch another vid and it stopped having network access. Confirmed firewall isn't blocking anything (even disabled it) and no proxy being used. Reinstalled 96.0 (was on like 95.X) no change --- update option in settings has no network access so I just downloaded it on another browser & installed (left the temp files alone) same issue.

This is a software issue with Firefox, not a computer issue. Nothing was updated or change on the computer either and it just stopped working while on youtube. Restarted PC, no change. Disabled a few exts like adblocker & no change.

PC is running macos 11.6, 96.0 firefox.

Thank you for any help.

I sign into FF. I have "Never remember History" selected in my settings, and I'm running is Strict Privacy mode, but every time I open a tab and the Pocket page appears - at the top of the page are icons of some sites I have visited in the past. How can that be disabled so History is not remembered ?
