Please Help Me With Unwanted Tracking and Advertising

Hello! Please give me instructions on how to permanently block / stop FireFox's "Welcome Pages".

I remember asking FireFox to block trackers and suppress as much advertising as possible. I never thought that FireFox would think that it was OK for FireFox itself to track me and send me unsolicited advertising.

I just received a FireFox "Welcome Page". This is something I don't recall ever seeing before. On the "Welcome" page I found a link that informed me that "Welcome Pages" are sent when people reach certain "Milestones". FireFox had to be tracking me in order to decide I'd reached a "Milestone" - although I have no idea what Milestone I reached.

On top of that, the so-called "Welcome Page" is actually an ADVERTISEMENT for an UNSOLICITED product offer to pay FireFox for something. What kind of "welcome" is that ?

All I can say is I'm very shocked that FireFox has taken advantage of making me feel I'm being protected from tracking and ads, which the browser seems to do quite well, EXCEPT for FireFox itself. That is shameful in my opinion.

Thank you in advance for your assistance helping me to go the extra mile and plug the tracking and ad leak I was not aware that I've had all of this time.

What's this infatuation with black everywhere recently. I find black to be good in some respects but not in others. Some webpages just look (read) odd in black and icons (of sports teams for example) look wrong. Though I don't mind my tabs being black (though I prefer blue overall) I don't want the rest of my page to be black, White, as has been in the past and in most web sites is too bright and contrasty at times. Is there a theme whereby the main page (not the tabs) is in a mid or light grey? If so please let me know since the extremes of black/white just don't work for me. Thanks in advance.

Date: 10 May 2022 AusEST

Firefox 100.0 (64-bit) Mac desktop: Apple Silicon Mac mini (M1, 2020) - macOS Monterey v12.3.1 (problem occurred prior years using Intel/iMac 2015; and previous macOS) Extensions: DuckDuckGo Privacy Essentials; HTTPS Everywhere; NoScript Plugins: OpenH264 Video Codec provided by Cisco Systems,Inc. Location: Australia EST


I am wondering if the following is a known problem. If so, I haven’t been able to find the solution online.

I keep copies of home rental online payments as proof of payment should there be a discrepancy with the real estate agency.

This problem can also apply in other situations, for example payment of online purchases, or movement of large amounts of money to varying institutions.

Sometimes the bank payment is delayed and I would like to ensure that not only the date of payment is accurate but also that the time of payment is relatively close. I am finding that the file printed when banking via Firefox is not time dated relatively close to the time of payment. I use Firefox solely for banking as a secure method.

Upon payment I am presented with a bank receipt and an option to print it, all within Firefox’s desktop application. After pressing the PRINT button I choose to print as PDF and save to the computer. The resulting file is what I am referring to.

The pdf receipt is shown with default details at the top and bottom of the page, the bottom being where the date and time of pdf printing occurred. The discrepancy is between that time shown and the actual time of payment. The difference can be sometimes up to 12 hours!

Can someone please assist me to rectify the situation?

Kind regards, Harauld

Why I can't I see this? or where can I find it?

Various Fire Fox sources say I need to set up an Firefox Syn account and that I can make a selection to do this in Firefox preferences. However this is no option for this available. There is a single option labeled sync but it doe does not synchronize my laptop to my account and none of my bookmarks etc are up to date.

I experience the exact same issue as [https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/que.../1311714] since I've updated to Firefox 100 on macOS.

E.g. I get a page not fully loaded.

myheritage.fr works fine in private browsing and on iOS.

I tried to reload the page bypassing the cache and force a fresh retrieval: Mac=Command+Shift+R

It works "fine" for the current page. However, when I go to another page of the website then the new page gets broken.

I also tried to :

  • Clear cache and local storage
  • Deactivate plugins and themes
  • Change the Network.dns.disablePrefetch value
  • Change the dom.storage.next_gen value
  • Use the safe mode
  • Use the recovery option

None of the above work. Not to mention that the website works well in private browsing and on safari.

Thank you in advance for your help.
