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?

How do i go about restoring my old firefox data? Firefox suggested restarting the browser and once it opened back up it deleted all my extentions etc. and placed an 'old firefox data' folder on my desktop. I tried finding solutions but nothing worked. I typed in about:profile. Went to default profile. I clicked on Local Directory - Show in folder. And then pasted everything from my old firefox data folder into that. And nothing worked. Any help????

I am developing a website. I have uploaded the files to my webhost server. When I visit the page I get the following error.

The page isn’t redirecting properly

An error occurred during a connection to www.themindcreative.net.

This problem can sometimes be caused by disabling or refusing to accept cookies.

Never seen this before, been using this webhost for over a decade and numerous websites. This only started with the new website and after the latest Firefox update. I have a support ticket in with Dreamhost but have not heard back.

Obviuosly I cant just allow all cookies - thats ridiculous. Every other website I visit displays just fine and I have most cookies turned off with the strict/strong tracking protection turned on in Firefox preferences.

Any idea what this 'redirect' error message means? And how to fix it?

Cheers Adam

I tried opening my outlook email which was supposed to redirected me to my school outlook site. Usually It worked when I do that but for some reason now it doesn't work. I tried opening it in my other browsers and it works. Only Firefox couldn't open it.

I found this site https://support.mozilla.org/bm/questions/1028755 and i tried to do the steps on how to fix it, but it still didn't work. I still couldn't go in the site. Is there any way for me to be able to access it again? what should I do?

This is the 3rd time trying to post my question. When I open some of your automated replies which do not help, and try to go back, my question disappears. The latest update was irrelevant to my usage, so I resisted uploading it. In trying to get rid of the frequent reminder to update, I apparently did load the update. Now it takes longer to load my email, or switch to my wife's email. She is not happy, which makes me unhappy. Can that update be reversed?

I am just wondering why FireFox occasionally becomes slow to load web pages. On these occasions, restarting Firefox fixes the problem immediately.

Example, I was just loading the same page repeatedly because of some work I am doing. After about 15 minutes of slow response times, I restarted FireFox and immediately, the page loaded very quickly as usual.

You can see the page where this was occurring at this url: https://legacy-systems.biz/demo/demo.html

Any information etc. would be appreciated immensely.
