I'm trying to install Firefox for Chromebook using Flatpak (article https://mzl.la/3pbybGW)

But I am faced with choosing a ref. See attached image. I have no idea how to choose, or what this even means.

Can anyone provide me with guidance on this?

My device is a Google Pixelbook with the latest ChromeOS.

Thanks

I get this error message when I try to open an email from WWJ 950 radio Detroit: "This site isn't currently available in the EU"

I'm not sure why I get this message: "This site isn't currently available in the EU", but only on my Windows 11 laptop. I don't get the message on my cell phone; instead it goes right to the website. They both use Mozilla/Firefox. here's an example: "https://mail.yahoo.com/d/folders/1/messages/AN6WxktugKP1Zo6E-gXQSGxZLg4." Connection button shows that the site is secure. I have not cleared the cookies. When I select any one of the subjects in the email which are usually local news items I get this response: "This site isn't currently available in the EU." Here's an example of one of the items: "https://www.audacy.com/wwjnewsradio/news/local/michigan-man-guilty-of-making-threat-of-msu-stage-act-2?utm_source=WWJ-AM&utm_medium=email&utm_campaign=WWJ-AM%20NEWSLETTER&utm_content=WWJ%20Daily%20Recurring%20Newsletter&mi_u=1655089&mi_ecmp=WWJ%20Daily%20Recurring%20Newsletter."

The problem is I'm not in the EU and it appears that I might be dealing with a tracker but when I scan the computer there is no evidence of that. Is there something else that might be going on?

I recently got seriously worried when I became aware about the new AI firewalls these days, which monitors or inspect SSL encrypted packets, before the packets reach to the main website. These new AI firewall systems are installed in some countries by their governments to suppress free speech, or just spy on its people. These firewalls, as you may already know, uses DPI-SSL system, which decrypts packets traveling from user to the main website. To decrypt the HTTPS packets, these firewalls uses its own self signed CA certificates. So I am asking the firefox developers, that why you guys allow this privacy issue? Does the packets sent from a firefoxe browser to other websites are also decrypted, by these firewalls? If yes, then why you guys allow this? Firefox must ONLY allow a specific CA certificate made for firefox browser only. Firefox browser must never let other third party softwares, or any software, to decrypt its encrypted packets. This is a serious privacy issue. With these firewalls, they can see what users write in chats, or posts, they can see witch content we are watching on a website, they can see who we follow on social media platforms, they can see which content or posts we like and etc. Even passwords are not safe anymore, which e use for any website of platform. When passwords are not safe, so does our accounts of various websites. This is a serious privacy breach.

These firewalls is a weapon for those countries which want to suppress free speech or suppress opposition sides in a government or spy on its own people.

Please let me know if I am mistaken or my concerns are genuine.

I'm having a problem and need your help. Every time I try to go to Gmail (gmail.com) or Google Earth (earth.google.com), I get redirected to this site called grandid.com which is the website my school uses to log in to school accounts. This is my home cumputer so i am not intrestend in that and would like to completly block grandid.com from ever redirecting me. It's blocking me from logging into my accounts and using these services.

I've cleared my cache and cookies and even tried blocking grandid.com with extensions, but nothing is working. This is really frustrating and messing up my ability to check my emails and use Google Earth.

Can you please help me fix this?
