Firefox connects to Google even with Telemetry disabled.
In browser settings i've disabled telemetry and data sharing with "mozilla". Why do put mozilla in quotes? Because the data is actually going to google. I'm monitoring my computers connections and i see firefox connecting to google immediately after opening the browser, that's without connecting to any website. Firefox used to be a great privacy browser, these times are long gone and it's a shame. Mozilla, you have lost all honor.
Plus, libraries of firefox are proprietary? Which part exactly? Forks of firefox are most likely affected by the sroprietary libraries aren't they...

As far i'm concerned, when using a browser theres zero need for any connections expect updates. What does mozilla renting servers from google and amazon have to do with me, why is my browser connecting to these servers, there is no need for that. Besides any connection to google or amazon isn't trustworthy anyways no matter what people here will try to make you believe.
Right i forgot mozilla is funded by google, no point even registering here.
I would not suggest or recommend using Waterfox.
Google Cloud and AWS connections are necessary for the updates you mention and for other interactions as openly described in the Firefox privacy notice at:
