I have been using MOZILLA / Netscape/ Firefox Since 1996/7. Periodically I have a problem . LIKE RIGHT NOW I have to use Chrome to contact you because your latest version is seriously corrupted and under attack from ; "attachappstreams.best You already know that because you've got a web page warning us of it. But you don't have a way to fix it. No matter how many times I delete it. Reboot my Windows 7 desktop. Or open and close the latest version of Firefox. That damn phony update keeps popping up with bells and blue screens and I can't use your browser until YOU GUYS figure out how you screwed up and gave them access. ADD ons and Ad blockers are equally dangerous and I limit them to only 2 for the past 5 years. Get a handle on the is , guys/gals . Or sadly, because I really don't like Chrome. But what choice do I have. FIX IT. IT Quickly. Or you're going to lose serious market share. Just like you did to Internet Explorer 20 years ago.

There is no shortage of privacy protection plugins, which I consider to be a good thing However, Firefox also has tracking protection on board itself. This leaves me wondering if and how much overlap there is between these privacy protection plugins and Firefox tracking protection and if having both or multiple of these enabled, isn't simply overkill?

To illustrate, I have tracking protection set to strict. In addition, I use EFF Privacy Badger, uBlock Origin, NoScript and DuckDuckGo Privacy Essentials.

If I have Firefox tracking protection set to strict, do I still need Privacy Badger, uBlock Origin and DuckDuckGo Privacy Essentials? These seem to cover the same functionality but one may be better than the other. How do I know which to choose? (NoScript is more a security feature, so that's another matter).

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?

A while ago I asked a question about data collection (telemetry). It was referenced to what chrome was doing, but what I found disturbed me. When you turn off telemetry, Firefox still collects this data and archives it. The answer was to alter a preference to fix it.

Well now I have done that thanks to contributors cor-el & RobertJ.

So now my expectation is that Firefox does not collect Telemetry data at all. It does not send it to Firefox. It does not store or archive it locally.

Good.

I got a popup with recommendations for extensions features. There is an option to turn both off.

But how does it know what recommendations to make and how often? Well you see Firefox collects data about this. Where I have been and the sorts of data my browser has encountered.

I have specifically told Firefox not to collect Telemetry data. I had to tell Firefox not to archive it.

I have now told Firefox not to make recommendations.

SO.....

HOW DO I STOP FIREFOX COLLECTING THIS DATA IN THE FIRST PLACE?

I shouldn't have to. Shouldn't Firefox stop collecting data either remotely or locally if I turned off these recommendations?

I love Firefox but this sort of back door, sneaking is starting to turn me off.

I expect it from Google or Microsoft, given their absolute lack of integrity, not from Firefox.

Dear all,

how can I tell whether my version of Firefox already has received the shipment of Enhanced Tracking Protection 2.0? Is there any notation somewhere? (I searched for it, but did not find anything, neither in the ETP settings or in the Protections Dashboard, nor in about:config.)

Please advice how to find out. Thank you!

I have problems with multiple sites that claim that third-party cookies are blocked and do not work even though though the Enhanced Tracking Protection is disabled for the site (the shield icon is grey and striked-through). In particular it is teams.microsoft.com and Instapaper (their saving bookmarklet sends me always to a site reading "enable unrestricted third-party cookie access for www.instapaper.com" - though this might be a different issue than Teams).

I have read https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/enhanced-tracking-protection-firefox-desktop?redirectslug=enable-and-disable-cookies-website-preferences&redirectlocale=en-US#w_how-to-tell-when-firefox-is-protecting-you and https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/websites-say-cookies-are-blocked-unblock-them (trying even to "forget" the teams website; not doing the full wipe out of everything).

How to troubleshoot / fix this? I am a technical person so I can dig into it if just somebody points me in the right direction...

Thank you!
