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?

I was working with my Internet Provider and in an attempt to solve and issue they had me delete my History, Cache, Cookies, and so on. After doing so, Firefox will no longer remember anything from my History. Every time Firefox closes it erases all of it. I have to login to my email 25 times a day now. I have changed all the settings that Help has listed and they have changed nothing. Please, Help.

I want to enable two-factor authentication for my Firefox account. I did the standard steps at accounts.firefox.com. Everything seems to work except that the codes generated by Google Authenticator aren't accepted by accounts.firefox.com. I then tried Microsoft authenticator, with the same result. Then Authy, again same result.

Here are my steps. > Google Authenticator already installed on phone. It works with my Google account. > I used Mozilla Firefox to log-in at accounts.firefox.com on my laptop Steps at firefox.com: log-in > Click to enable two-step authentication > Click Add account on Google authenticator (on my phone) > Scan the QR code showing on laptop screen > Google Authenticator adds the account and displays a 6-digit code > Enter the code at accounts.firefox.com

Everything works except the last step. Accounts.firefox.com rejects the code every time. Same for every other authenticator app I tried.

Hi,

I'm getting bored with firefox...

Spent 2 hours trying to find on internet or compare the about:config of my laptop/desktop to try to see what the problem.


on desktop on some website: when i click on a link, lets say an ssd deal for instance, i cannot reach the page and a small notification appears on right bottom corner (not below bookmarks like a popup) saying : "redirection canceled" and bring me back to the original page. on laptop same version of firefox (and same general settings) but no such problem, i started to compare each value in about:config but i stoped before becoming crazier.

whatever option i disable (website tracking) its still there, if i open in new private tab, the same.

So bored of spending so much time on some stupid option it seem i cannot have control over it, as i'm sure its just a simple value i have to change somewhere but cant find the info.

So please, if i was clear enough it my description, tell wich command i should change to get rid of it. Alternatively: is there a way to copy the config from one firefox to another? (like this i might copy config from laptop to desktop.

thx in advance for your eventual help

Hi. I'm a user of OpenVPN which uses TAP (a virtual network adapter) to establish VPN connections. Sometimes I need to switch VPN on/off when browsing websites, but I didn't find options like "select a network adapter to use" within Firefox. Currently the only solution is to connect/disconnect OpenVPN to switch VPN on/off, but it's quite inconvenient for me.

I've tried searching for add-ons about this, but a possible one named "FoxyProxy" has dropped this feature recently because of the changes about Firefox API, so I think my problem can be no longer solved by add-ons.

Any solutions to this? Can I have this feature provided by Firefox with updates if there isn't any workaround for now?

Ok so I have an issue with loading web pages via SOCKS5 + VPN in Firefox

I tried disable all the plug-ins also changed **network.proxy.allow\_hijacking\_localhost** from false to true and also changed **network.proxy.socks\_remote\_dns** from false to true.

None of this options helped :( I spent all day to figure out what's the problem but with no result.

I have used instructions on how to set up SOCKS5 from here: https://5socks.net/Manual/browser\_en.html(https://5socks.net/Manual/browser_en.html) but every time I try to acces let's say [google.com](https://google.com) I get the message "Unable to connect" like there is no internet.

I beg you guys to help me out... I did a lot of research but didn't find any proper solution.

Thanks in advance! Hope everyone is healthy and happy!

How to delete "main" sites (like "youtube.com") from automatic suggestions in the address bar

When I type "you" in the address bar, Firefox autofills to "youtube.com". However, I would like it to autofill to "youtube.com/feed/subscriptions" instead.

In other cases, I can use shift+delete to remove suggestions so they no longer are offered; however, this does not appear to work for sites like youtube.com, as pressing shift+delete temporarily removes the suggestion but adding an additional "t" ("yout") causes it to autofill as "youtube.com" again.

Is there a way to delete these suggestion so the subdomain "youtube.com/feed/subscriptions" is automatically suggested when I start typing this?

Замена главной страницы и поискового сервиса по умолчанию без предварительного уведомления и запроса согласия на изменения

Мной в очередной раз обнаружена замена главной страницы и поискового сервиса по умолчанию, сделанная без предварительного уведомления и запроса согласия на эти изменения. Изменения произошли после обновления браузера. Я возмущен и намерен не стесняться в выражениях своего возмущения. За каким хреном собачьим в свою пользу и какой кретин додумался мне навязывать в качестве главного иной поисковый сервис и иную главную страницу, чем те, которые были назначены мной и использовались до автоматического обновления браузера? Каким образом и почему вместо сделанного мной выбора в качестве поиска по умолчанию и в качестве домашней страницы установлен продукт Yandex LLC, который в той реализации, в какой он мне поставлен, по моему субъективному мнению является грязной помойкой новостей, нерелевантных моим интересам, без спроса шпионящим ресурсом, пропагандонским сервисом, трусливо замалчивающим главные с моей точки зрения события, но зато напичканный баннерами с третьесортной рекламой и такого же сорта новостями, заодно с кучей активных ссылок на bloatware, устанавливающихся точно таким же образом, как и этот поисковый по недоразумению сервис и эта ненужная мне домашняя страница браузера по умолчанию? Меня очень интересует, кто с больной головы на здоровую решил, что это можно делать, не спрашивая меня и моего разрешения, исходя даже из самых лучших побуждений облегчить мне задачу выбора поставщика информационных услуг? Кто, каким образом и на каком основании осуществил эту замену настроек? Повторю описание ситуации особо одаренным альтернативно. Устанавливая браузер, я выбрал язык английский и поисковый сервис Google. И он тоже не идеален, но это мой выбор. Я разберусь, чем мне пользоваться - не разработчики сервиса и ПО, не поставщики сервиса должны в этом разбираться и тем более что-то предпринимать слабо приспособленными для этого органами деятельности и даже не господь Б-г, а я. Спрашивается: на основании чего и каким образом поставка обновления браузера оказывается устроенной таким интересным способом, что я, однажды прекрасным утром открывая свой браузер, снова обнаруживаю абсолютно не устраивающие меня предварительные настройки обновленного программного продукта, которые не делал ни я, ни кто либо вместо меня со стороны пользовательского интерфейса? Это что - моль от соседей залетела и занесла? Это тараканы с помойки приползли и притащили инфекцию? Если в доме подметено, то почему бы однажды не отказать себе в привычке заходить, не переобувась в чистое. Тем более - в чужом доме. Почему бы однажды не перестать влезать без спросу, как это бывает в обыкновении определенной категории людей, и взять за хорошее правило ничего не менять в моих настройках приобретенной мной системы, включая настройки приложения, установленные мной, до получения такой просьбы и делать только по получении согласия на действия, после предварительного полного информирования о результатах тех действий, которые будут произведены? Как эта простота вмешательства стала возможной и как оградить себя от девиантного поведения? И третий раз. Кто, каким образом и на основании чего бесцеремонно навязывает мне то, что я не делал и не собирался делать? И, наконец, основной вопрос - как эти девиации исключить в дальнейшем, не затрачивая личное время на перенастройки того что уже один раз настроено мной по моему выбору, не тратя время на скандальные публикации, и не прибегая к отказу от Firefox?

Today I found out that Firefox in 2 systems I have (one Windows and one on Ubuntu) the master password would not work! Although I tried my master pass correctly Firefox would not accept it. I had to reset master password and enter login to Firefox synch, remove my device from the list and resynch again to get all my saved logins!

Did the update to version 79 did something to master password?

I have a Synology NAS which is set up for HTTPS using a certificate from LetsEncrypt (Synology's recommendation) However when I try to access the NAS via my Firefox browser (v79.0) Initially I get an error. The "i" in the URL box advises me "Connection not secure" However, when I press the "try again" button I can access the NAS as normal. Checking the padlock in the URL box it confirms it confirms I have already set an exception to this login. This happens every time I restart my Windows 10 pc. However, if I just close the browser and try again during the same session it connects straight away. It is not a showstopper but I would like to get to the bottom of it with your help... Why will it stop me on first attempt but always give me access when I press Try again?
