Why does Firefox feed so much data to Google?

A while back, I discovered a Google plugin hidden within Firefox. I figured maybe one thing was fine until I realized that Widevine actually did some bad stuff to your OS, since it needs to access the internal OS to block screenshots and screen recordings. Today, I discovered that geolocation also uses Google servers, and in the process of turning it off I also discovered that there is this "Safe Browsing" that also uses Google. Looking even further, even some of the privacy things redirect to Google. I haven't even mentioned that the default search engine is Google. Even if Google paid you to make them the default, you could create a prompt on the first launch asking for search engine, with Google selected by default but another search engine (like DDG) recommended. All of this Google software is likely sucking on our data.

Now while writing this post, I noticed something even worse. Why are Google servers on the filter whitelists? This is uncool. I understand, maybe your website needs to detect Firefox to function correctly, and antifingerprint would break it. But WHY GOOGLE? All of this seems to be going against the goal of privacy. How are you supposed to expect a random person to go directly to about:add-ons, disable Google Widevine, go to about:preferences, disable safe browsing, go to about:config, enter the "danger" zone confidently, and delete Google from the 10,000 times it appears in the config?

Is there a way to quickly hide all extensions?

When I record screencasts, I don't want people to see what extensions I'm using. For one, it's distracting, for second, it's a privacy issue.

In chrome (iron, opera...) I can quickly drag and resize the extensions area so nothing is seen. Fast an easy.

Is there a way to do this in Firefox. I am open to extensions or keyboard shortcuts as well!

(Pinning to overflow menu is not a solution. It takes many clicks and a long time.)

Thank you for any help.

The new base system theme for FireFox is not accessible. I cannot visually tell when one tab shifts to another. Three's not enough contrast. There's no line that marks the shift from one tab to the next. I tried countless contributor themes and they're all lacking the same feature - a physical break between tabs. Fades on text are also not accessible. Please fix this issue!

Thank you, Nanette visual deficits in Minnesota

With Firefox 91, I can no longer disable the hideous Proton changes to tabs. Separating tabs from their content is a really poor user interface decision. It makes it harder to tell which tab is the current tab. With Proton, the active tab is slightly brighter than the inactive tabs. For older folks and color blind folks, this makes it all but impossible to to tell which tab is active.

If you won't come to your senses and revert this bad user interface decision, then at least add an official option to disable it and go back to the old tab style that other browsers use. If you won't do that, then I will just have to use a different browser. Which makes me very sad, because aside from your bad sense in user interface design, I loved Firefox.

I try to clear cookies and site data but it doesn't work and keeps coming back. I've cleared hundreds of times before with no problem but now for some reason the data doesn't clear. I've tried clearing history first, or clearing each item individually but nothing working? What do I do?

In Google Search, there is often a "People Also Ask" section with drop-down answers. In last few weeks they won't open for me, but they do in Safari. There are some other minor things with other sites.

  1. Numbered list item I searched in about:config for "java" and there are no edited settings like that.
  2. Numbered list item I disabled all extensions, restarted Firefox, problem persists.

I don't know what other settings to check.

I'd like to update my mac's firefox, but not to the latest version. I know about the directory of releases, but I can't seem to find advice on what to do once I download the file. I don't want to create a separate profile, or risk messing up the profile/settings I have currently. So, any thoughts? Thank you in advance for the help.

I am getting more & more frustrated and exasperated, as simple browsing has become tortuously slow, with many sites taking forever to load, or only partially load, or have to be refreshed a couple times, to finally get it to load. And videos constantly freezing up, despite lots of free RAM, and a very high-speed internet connection. I assumed whatever was causing this would've been addressed in the last update, or two, but no, it's only getting worse.

Updated to Firefox 91.0 (MacOS 10.13.6 High Sierra) ==> UI issues with fields showing no color, inappropriate color, window transparent/skeletal appearance where under-window is visible / inability to use selection buttons. Normally I could solve this by deselecting graphics acceleration but in 91.0 FFx this doesn't solve the problem. If FFx Team Members are reading: Please fix, thanks.

I'm a web designer, trying to move away from Chrome because of privacy/security issues. I'm also 63 years old. My eyes are old. The text size on the tabs and bookmarks is very difficult to read. I don't want to increase the size of everything else - ***just the tab and bookmark text***. I've tried the fix seen elsewhere in the community for this question, but that doesn't change the size at all. If I increase the size, say by Zoom, that's a problem with my page layout. Can anyone help, please?

I'm on a Mac, but using an LG monitor, so no Retina display.

After the latest MacOS update (Monterey) when my laptop started back up I saw everything in Firefox in a different language. This didn't happen in Chrome or Safari. Not it seems to happen if I can't connect to wifi and then reconnect. It's always on an error page and *sometimes* on other pages too (like the login to this forum just now).

I've tried:

  • Reinstalling Firefox
  • Clearing all of my cache and browsing history
  • Using the Firefox repair tool

Nothing seems to help and Apple support just says its a Firefox issue. Any help would be greatly appreciated!

(for what ever reason I can't upload images to this question so here are two examples):

I keep getting the message 'Access to clipboard denied - please update your browser Preferences'. (Firefox in Windows and Mac).

But Firefox Preferences shows NOTHING about the clipboard.

This seems to be the default in the latest Firefox – before I updated it there was an annoying popup that asked me to select Block/Allow access to clipboard *and I always clicked Allow*. Now it is blocked and I cannot turn off the block.

This has made Firefox unusable.

Hi. I would like to restore my previous session when I open Firefox (last version of the browser installed). The option is turned on, but nothing happens when I close the browser and I open it again. The support says I should see "Restore previous session" after "New Private Window", but this option is not there. In the history, the list of recently closed tabs is always empty, there are juste one or two links in the recently closed windows (it seems to be a random list). Can someone help me ? I don't understand why it doesn't work. Thank you :)

In recent times, after I've been browsing for about 20 or 30 minutes, Firefox becomes very very slow to respond. Simultaneously it coincides with a similar slowdown over the entire computer - in finder and with other open programs. If I close Firefox (which takes several minutes to complete) the slowness of finder and the open programs disappears. The slowness never happens unless Firefox is open. I've tried Chrome and haven't had the same issue.

What might be causing this delayed slowness and how do I solve it?

Firefox crashes whenever I go onto a certain web page such as a few parts of the discord website and some YouTube videos. I have tried nearly everything I can find which is somewhat similar to the issue I am having. I tried disabling WebGL, tweaking security.sandbox.content.level, reinstalling, checking my add-ons, and rebooting my macbook (macOS 10.13.6). The same thing happens on safari, but not chrome.

The crash reason stated is: EXC_BAD_ACCESS / KERN_INVALID_ADDRESS Here are the crash reports: bp-e8779820-e621-4739-a43e-e392a0210505 bp-29a6f662-0f4c-44d4-afbd-5e5900210505 bp-9ce6f8a8-6ddf-4771-824e-f94280210505
