Why did Mozilla add bing, google, twitter. amazon, eBay and wikipedia extensions without permission and without showing them in the add-on manager for removal? I found them in my profile, but could not disable them there. Fortunately I was able to disable them in CCleaner. I have not found any explanation in version update blogs, privacy policy notices, etc. If they were added to Firefox by the websites, there was no notice that this would happen that I could find. Is the extension the new data collection technology for these websites to replace cookies?

Those two are not bundled with Firefox. Defaults are included in the omni.ja file, so they can't really be removed. And last time I checked it, they couldn't collect any data. This search engine file contains only manifest with an URL to the search engine, list of parameters and translations.

These are not extensions but search engines. A number of search engines has been in Firefox since almost beginning. Now the only change is that they are listed on the about:support page.

கேள்வியின் உரிமையாளர்

Two questions: Not all search engines are listed as extensions, e.g. IMDB and wiktionary. Maybe these two were not defaults? When I remove search engines on Options Search page, they still show up as "true" in profile list, even after restarting Firefox. CCleaner still shows them as "disabled" plugins, but they returned as "true" in profiles after a restart , so there is no way to remove them from there now either. So can they actually be removed or would that negatively impact operation? And do these extensions collect data even when not in use? Thanks.
