I dont care what you are going to say to make it sound okay, it is NOT OKAY AT ALL. Mozilla Firefox supposed to be a Privacy Browser is not making business with Meta -> Facebook, lately i really question the mental health of Mozilla, first a unique identifier, now a partnership with zucking facebook, what's next? Let me tell you something, if you are a privacy company then get the zuck away from companies who don't give a damn zuck about privacy -> facebook, mozilla can NOT simply make a deal with facebook and claim "oh dont worry it's ok your privacy is secure, bullsh!t.

You know what, i have been using Firefox since i first accessed the internet with a webbrowser, now hear this -> one more negative thing from mozilla and that's it, bye mozilla you have lost your way.

While this is only me speaking here, MANY people have already quit firefox because of what mozilla has been doing recently. Continue what you are doing now, and soon your greatest product -> firefox will be dead. When privacy partners with tracking & spyware this is the definition of suicidal behaviour. I really worry about Mozillas Mental Health lately.

I will copy paste this post to a few other mozilla releated forums, let's see how long it stays on before censorship happens.


Here a few comments from reddit users on this topic:

The article says what it says, but we all have a long memory of Facebook/ Rebranded Facebook being a company that is horrible, and not to be trusted when they put out a press release. -Nailed it

I’ve been using Firefox since like 2002. I never stopped. I really hope I don’t have to soon. I will give them the benefit of the doubt. -Nailed it

Facebook is one company you should keep away as far as possible. -Nailed it

Then read the article, and see that this is a case of Mozilla working with Meta to maintain privacy. -This person must have mental issues, time to see a doctor asap!

Our website The Last Price is based in Qatar that have different category products like iPhone Mobile Phones, Tablets & Earbuds, Home Appliances, Accessories (Mobile Covers & Cases, Keyboards & Controllers, etc.) and many other eCommerce products.

As I mention above that we have different ecommerce products which we only want to sell in Qatar but we are getting some other countries traffic like USA, Pakistan, Germany, Brazil, Argentina, so how we can block these countries or anything in Google Search Console which help to keep the website with country specific?

Is there any specific Mozilla Firefox extension that you recommend or any HTML code help to block other country traffic?

Thanks John The Last Price : https://www.the-lastprice.com/

Hello,

this topic is about two things.

1. How do I reset the data of the built-in Protections Dashboard without resetting all of Firefox?

2. and probably more complicated, how do I stop Firefox from checking for "Login breach information"?

I do already have and always had "Show alerts about passwords for breached web sites" in options disabled. Still the Dashboard shows that "1 password stored securely.".

Mozilla says "[i]Firefox Monitor warns you if your online accounts were involved in a known data breach. For more information, see Firefox Password Manager - Alerts for breached websites. To get the latest login breach information and more, Firefox connects to firefox.settings.services.mozilla.com/i"

So now I've gone as far as blocking "firefox.settings.services.mozilla.com" through HOSTS. Still the Dashboard shows that "1 password stored securely.".

Why is it still checking? How is it still checking? How do I stop this?

edit: Screenshots added

Call it paranoia or a hunch but I cannot get beyond the notion that I am PERSONALLY being spied upon on my telephone and this spying transcends all features of my Samsung Galaxy S21 5G FE and anything I use it for, Firefox is only one feature concerning me. There was a time not too long ago where I ran for a City position in my local government and during this period of running for office I spent months learning the matrixes of operations necessary to understand IF someone (myself) was to run for and accept a seat in government tasked with the management of these complexities and challenges. I took this on myself as a civilian who wanted to make a difference in the community where I reside. Unbeknownst to me, when one from the outside enters the arena whether it's blatantly stated or left for your personal discovery, suddenly you've set yourself up as a target for Media persons and all sorts of other clandestine characters who might and absolutely do, walk into your life from this air; in and out, in and out. As I was saying, I became close with many facets and fixtures within the community and at a particular point I realized they were so diligent about manipulating every aspect of this community, myself included, I suddenly realized I was surrounded by people who couldn't believe what I was saying was true: I was being investigated by the "Movers and Shakers" of the small town where I reside. They went so far as to insulate my attic and place cameras and wire taps inside and out I have aerial photos of strange automobiles in my driveway and neighbors informing me that people where entering my house while I was away from it. The Mayor at the time had a relative on the Board of Directors at AT&T and they illegally tapped my computer, car, phone, etc. The question is, now that everyone is aware that they do this, how can I prove it to anyone who can make it stop? How can I effectively prove this typesetting isn't being broadcast to some remote location where they continue to disrupt my personal life?

Please say there is a way. This is a big HUGE dilemma in society. They don't care. I do.

Thank you

How deep is Google's anti-privacy impact on Mozilla going?

If i remember correctly Mozilla earns around 80% of their income from Google. I have said it before and i will say it again, Mozilla claims to stand for Privacy (maybe that was true in the past at some point) while Google is tracking Billions of Human beings 24/7 as they use Google as their Android Operating System, that can be considered very much anti-privacy. (Sadly majority of people either don't care or are to silly to install a different OS on their Phone).

Clearly this looks like a conflict of interest, one company want's privacy while the other one makes their money with tracking human beings and selling their data and then giving a part of that money to mozilla for using google as the default search engine in firefox.

If knownledge is power then how much power does google have? How much do they know about you? Your contacts, location, online searches and history, and so on... I seriously think people should quit google immediately, what this company is doing is literally criminal, unless ofcourse people are once again silly enough to let it happen.

Firefox says on it's website "At Mozilla, we believe that privacy is fundamental to a healthy internet." If true why do you BY DEFAULT have telemetry ENABLED and why do you BY DEFAULT use GOOGLE as search engine?? Something is obviously not right here. What is also very interesting is that this site support.mozilla.org is connected to www.google-analytics.com and to www.googletagmanager.com Im guessing this basically means when i use the mozilla support site or login with my account, google is also gathering data about me.

Google has become the cancer of the internet, way to many sites have it embed aswell as facebook. Shame on all those greedy people who allow this massive privacy invasion just for their own profit. But honestly at the same time, can you really blame them? After all the people who allow this to happen are responsible aswell, this is just disgusting. I woonder if the whole world would like to end up like china, because if not then what in the universe is wrong with people? Wakeup! Delete Google Delete Facebook Delete Tiktok and eventually your brain might be able to function again, install a privacy operatingsystem like lineageos or grapheneos and don't touch any anti privacy app ever again, is it so hard?? Was totally simple for me.

   Interaction data: Firefox sends data about your interactions with Firefox to us (such as number of open tabs and windows; number of webpages visited; number and type of installed Firefox Add-ons; and session length) and Firefox features offered by Mozilla or our partners (such as interaction with Firefox search features and search partner referrals).
   Technical data: Firefox sends data about your Firefox version and language; device operating system and hardware configuration; memory, basic information about crashes and errors; outcome of automated processes like updates, safebrowsing, and activation to us. When Firefox sends data to us, your IP address is temporarily collected as part of our server logs.

=

As a final notice, i don't beleve that this is everything mozilla collects, surely your tight parnership with google analytics is able to identify every single firefox profile and connect it to the person using it.

Judging from the screenshots how likely that my phones are also contaminated, and what actions should i take to minimize the risks. The reason i saw this was that my e.bank wasn't working correctly, always trying to send money via international transfer, even though transfer was domestic.

I ve uninstalled the browser by now but i think my PCs are still contaminated.

I use/like the randomly-generated 'strong' password feature, but is there a setting/option to have it include one or more special character(s)? So many sites nowadays require one, and VERY few *prohibit* them. I know I can 'substitute' one in there, but I'm VERY lazy! Thanks.
