I've used Google as my preferred search engine since Google became available...

Now, I get asked repeatedly if I want to sign in to my Google account, too many Sponsored websites, location location location, and type in once, my search results need streamlined, but I cant see what I wrote the first time!

Don't waste my time please with a technical response asking me did I control + alt+ no I didn't I don't operate like that.

Give e a simple fix... I'm growing tired of the constant updates to Fire Fox... never had these issue when the browser came out... supposedly a more user friendly private browser.

Hi

This is not an issue with Firefox but a service from Google that websites use to make it easier to sign into them using a Google account.

I understand that the add-on uBlock Origin may be able to block them. You can find and install it from:

You can get rid of Google sign-in prompts by installing uBlock Origin and enabling the Annoyances filters.

Why on Earth do I have to add anything on?

Settings

Search

Default Search Engine

"Google"

This is your default search engine in the address bar and search bar. You can switch it at any time.

There are no other choices, except "Bing"... not if I use this one I mine as well use the MS browser. of DuckDuck... I have always used Google, supposedly when it first came it the same "Privacy" capabilities "Fire Fox" advertises were in place!

I'm tired of adding and subtracting... the math is giving me a headache!

Google provides a range of products. Search is one, but they also offer an access control product. That Firefox has Google as the default search is different to websites using the access product.
