Obviously Firefox/Mozilla makes ~80% of their incomse $ by shipping the browser with google as default search engine, which is a privacy nightmare but who cares, it's for the money... So my best bet would be that's also the reason the default mailto suggested by firefox is google, is that correct? Does that mean something of google ins injected into Firefox? Look i have no idea to be honest, i do hate google and now im woondering where is the gmail logo comming from, is it stored somewhere inside of firefox? Is it just the logo or might there be more google crap injected to firefox behind the scenes?

Not sure what you mean by "locales". I have noticed yahoo was removed as default search engine in firefox, Anyways if mozilla would replace google with yahoo i would not be happy about that, yahoo has a dark history with google aswell as microsoft/bing, the search engine cannot be trusted at all, it's the same anti privacy crap as google is.

Firefox is not only available as say en-US, en-GB, en-CA as there is a long list of other language locales and many can have their own more local search engine defaults. https://www.mozilla.org/firefox/all/#product-desktop-release

There is a very slim chance of Yahoo being added as one of the search engine options again, let alone the default due to the legal battle Mozilla has had with Yahoo as mentioned in the thread I linked to /forums/contributors/712925

Yahoo was the default in many locales from Nov 2015 till Firefox 57.0 Release. https://blog.mozilla.org/en/uncategorized/a-new-yahoo-search-experience-for-firefox-users-in-u-s/ https://blog.mozilla.org/en/uncategorized/firefox-features-google-as-default-search-provider-in-the-u-s-canada-hong-kong-and-taiwan/

Any search engine they add as one of the options is due to things like contracts and not just because Mozilla thought it would be a good option to have in list.

From the looks of it - it's using the browser to login to gmail to send out emails that is associated with gmail account. So what is the problem here? Firefox isn't gmail.

I was just woondering why whenever i see this popup it's gmail. Literally, not a single other email provider ever showed up within this popup, why is that?

I do not know for sure, but given that Gmail is a popular email provider it makes sense to make it available.

Firefox used to have built-in mailto handlers for both Gmail and Yahoo, but earlier this year Yahoo fell by the wayside for some reason. Probably Outlook/Live/Hotmail should be in there, too. Of course, it's all for the convenience of people who have accounts on those sites and irrelevant for everyone else. If you want to suggest more mail sites to include, Mozilla recently started up a new "Ideas" site at https://connect.mozilla.org/. You can post your pitch and other users will vote on it.

Interesting, i would suggest to add tutanota and protonmail. Actually, i dont care about this setting at all, if there is no tutanota and no protonmail that is totally fine, but then gmail should also be removed. "Convenience" is the modern term for lazyness, i can only speak for myself telling you my opinion, google is a cancer and it's a dangerous cancer, i am sick of seeing google and facebook logins on 80% of websites that have a login/register option. These companies have no respect for privacy, they steal your personal information and sell it, infact i would call these companies stalkers because the amount of data and knownledge they have about most of today's society is far beyond what you could call "normal". I do not use a single google service and yet google has third party cookies/trackers/logins on some services i use, enough of this bullsh!t... That's why i also hate seeing gmail being pushed within firefox. Gmail is Google, Google has your data forever and they share it even with governments. Tracking one's smartphone 24/7 is what i call criminal.

Mozilla actually tried to get more away from Google as a default search engine in many of the locals and went with Yahoo for the locales that had Google as default. However Yahoo was a bust and ended up in legal battle back in late 2017 on. /forums/contributors/712925

Not sure what you mean by "locales". I have noticed yahoo was removed as default search engine in firefox, these days the default one is always google but even amazon, ebay, etc, are preinstalled without user consent. I know that firefox dev edition allows users to uninstall search engines, however i fear using the dev edition will most likely make me more identifiable on the internet as majority of firefox users use the standard browser version. Anyways if mozilla would replace google with yahoo i would not be happy about that, yahoo has a dark history with google aswell as microsoft/bing, the search engine cannot be trusted at all, it's the same anti privacy crap as google is.

Would be great to see one of those as default search engine in firefox: https://www.ecosia.org/ https://www.qwant.com/ https://searx.space/ https://search.mdosch.de/ https://swisscows.com/ https://metager.org/ https://search.brave.com/ https://www.mojeek.com/

Sadly duckduckgo can no longer be trusted as a search engine after having a "secret tracking agreement" with microsoft. Same with startpage, the search engine has been acquired by system1 which is an adversting company, startpage can no longer be trusted.

Hi

If you wish to add these to Firefox for your own use, this support article should help:

Rather than adding a search engine i would argue to get rid of google as default search engine. Mozilla must be aware of the fact that their default search engine google, is killing privacy. While at the same time mozilla offer's a "privacy" browsers called firefox, that simply doesn't fit together if you ask me... Anyways i think this disgusion is headed nowhere...
