Firefox Alleged Privacy & Other Apps

My browsing-history on Firefox was read by another app... I will list specifics to give a little potential context:

A couple nights ago, I decided to order food from Cheesecake Factory THROUGH the Firefox browser. At this time, I did not even open any food-app, not even in my recently used apps. The following day, I get a notification from DoorDash saying, ‘Try the cheesecake factory AGAIN and get 20% off,’ etc... Granted, I am also using a VPN, so all my internet traffic / web-browsing is encrypted leaving and coming into the phone.

It increasingly seems like companies touting ‘Privacy’ is just a gimic. It's extremely frustrating.

Hi, I have a problem with remembering the login details on the account - the point is that everything works fine on the browser on the computer, while on the browser on the phone (android) it sees the login details, but after selecting it, it does not complete the login fields as if there were no such data and they are, after checking the tab "saved login details" and finding the login, I manually copy the data and paste it on the page, then I log in ok. Why does the login not work with saved logins? Has anyone had or has the same problems? P.S Synchronization is done, the browser is reinstalled, it's the same on another phone

Remove unwanted URL from recommended/autocomplete address list

I am unable to find a way to remove a single unwanted URL from the suggestions list on Firefox for Android. If the website I want to go to (and that I go to regularly) is called abcxyz, and I went to website abcdef once, Firefox will always try to autocomplete the URL to abcdef even though I do not want to go there again. I have found instructions for how to accomplish this on PC, but they can't be followed on a mobile device. I have tried deleting the cookies, etc. for the unwanted website and removing it from my history, but without completely clearing out all browsing data for all websites (which I do not want to do), I haven't been able to figure out how to remove a single unwanted URL.

I gotta ask... why isn't there a setting to remove private browsing on firefox? Now yeah sure it's free security but we got add ons for that. I've always felt like private browsing and incognito stuff is just a way to go to pornhub feeling secured from criticism. That's why I quit Chrome (+ being able to watch YouTube with ads for free) so I gotta ask again... why isn't there a setting to remove private browsing on firefox?

How do we permanently block and keep a website from being able to return bk into a person's life after the site was the cause of an immense amount of financial and emotional hardship. By having something that does this, like the Duck browser does, our clients, friends and family will feel more safe, right?

As I was changing my password I believe someone else who is already hacked into my device, changed it before I could get it typed in completely. I know what I changed it to or was going to change it to but I received a notification before I completed typing it in. This is the reason I switched to the Firefox browser for the security that it has for it's accounts. Thank you in advance, any help would be greatly appreciated.
