This is important because i want to see if i buy a made in china produt so that i can boycott it. If we keep buying made in china, privacy, freedom, and democracy are in great danger.

I did the test at https://test.amiunique.org/?consent=1 and as a result got this: 16 potentially detected lists (over 292) - These filter lists will be used to generate an unique identifier. -see attached screenshot

Also, if any website of your choice creates a unique identifer on me by using the filter list, as long as i use the exact same filters as another person, could it be that the uniqure identififer is the same for me and the other person or a group of many persons/devices using this exact filter list? I mean.. if my list is the same as someone else they will be identically which means it doesn't matter i am unique identifyed because after all im not unique but only in a list of devices using a specific filter?

And i must say that now, if you go to https://test.amiunique.org and do the test, then klick the shield icon, how pathethic is that amount of trackers, social media trackers, and even cryptominers!?!?

Any? I dont trust google when they call something save. Are there extensions or third party addons any sort of plugins, is there any other company on earth offering save-browsing?

I read multiple articles that claim google faces a lawsuit 5bn$ for tracking users while using privat/incognito mode. If thats true, which propably is how can i still use "google save browsing" without feeling as if someone is watching over my shoulder?

Hellow,

Since updating the latest firefox version 91.01 it has considerably slowed down browsing speed to an impossible crawl. The task manager shows the update as permanently on, sucking 100% resources. There´s something not right when it does this, and is becoming a bad habit of constantly refreshing firefox to get sensible operation.

It started by installing a clear cache which helped as firefox also hangs when connecting to the internet as a result it goes off-line at random times. Barely ideal. 

Is it worth rolling back to an earlier version that is more stable ? Any other users got debugging suggestions ?

Once again, Mozilla has changed a good thing. I like searching from the middle of the page because I can actually see it and never use the address bar to search. Now with the latest downgrade, I can no longer use the search bar in the center of the page, it sits there with no use or purpose. I can only search from the address bar. I tried the fix of going to about:config, then handoff, then browser.newtabpage,activity............followed the directions exactly. IT DID NOT WORK. Someone needs to help fix this or I will dump mozilla as they continue to ignore functions that are PERFECT and change them to accommodate a group of people that live on their phones and make all changes preferential to that genre. I use a desk top to access the internet. Do not forget about PC users when you make these asinine changes!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Please, please, please, stop changing things that were working just fine. Every time you make one of these pointless UI changes it pushes me towards Chrome. I really prefer Firefox and have used it almost exclusively for over a decade. But how am I supposed to be able to use it when I literally can't read the interface? With every update I am sent to google various solutions posted by other users trying to remedy problems caused by the latest update. I shouldn't have to dive into about:config every time the FF developers decide to play with the source code. I shouldn't have to install UI addons to maintain intuitive workflow. I shouldn't have to append userChrome.css with code copy-pasted from some forum. And this is to say nothing of the users that are inexperienced enough or unwilling to make such changes. Most just switch to Chrome. Sure, some of it is personal preference. "Do you like large tabs or small tabs? Do you like square tabs or rounded tabs?" But when I LITERALLY CANT READ THEM, that's not something ANY user should have to google or fix on their end. That is the developers dropping the ball. Fix this. Firefox developers, YOU fix this. Because I am DONE with midnight scrambles to repair what someone else broke.

Is there even a single website left on this planet left that does not have a deal with google or facebook? I mean im here at firefox support to push my privacy and while i do that im being tracked by google. Ironic right?! What even is the reason "mozilla org - non profit organisation" allowed google to install their trackers here, money? Source: https://pagexray.fouanalytics.com/q/support.mozilla.org

support.mozilla.org static-media-prod-cdn.itsre-sumo.mozilla.net user-media-prod-cdn.itsre-sumo.mozilla.net stats.g.doubleclick.net www.google-analytics.com www.googletagmanager.com location.services.mozilla.com

The last four urls appear to be trackers..

Dont get me wrong. Mozilla Firefox is great browser but some things dont seem well. What is the logic using a "privacy browser" that comes with google as search engine? That is privacy one the left hand and tracking on the right hand. Ofcourse it's very easy to change the search engine and you mozilla does this because of money, i get it... but still you get my point? Basically... google is tracking when, where, and whoever they can to collect, analyse and sell data of individual human beings. And basically... Mozilla takes that bloody money from google to create a privacy seach engine, ironic right?! Anyone got any toughts on this?

And honestly, while i have been using Firefox for years, i feel that firefox has changed alot and i am not sure if i can trust mozilla anymore. There are multiple reasons for that. 1 - The partnership with google (ok i get it, its the money) 2 - Telemetry active by default... 3 - Pushing pocket and sync... 4 - New cringe modern style that looks similar to bigtech like google or instagram. I man look at the firefox logo, what the hell happened? This doesn't even look like firefox anymore... Honestly! Look at it! The old Fox was amazing, now it just looks like garbage, and after all this is not just my opinion but it is the very truth.

Take a look at this: https://reports.exodus-privacy.eu.org/en/reports/org.mozilla.firefox/latest/

                               https://reports.exodus-privacy.eu.org/en/reports/com.brave.browser/latest/

This i firefox VS brave in terms of privacy. brave appears to have zero trackers while firefox has 3... Those are only the mobile app/apk versions, i dont know if that also goes for the desktop installer, do you? If firefox desktop also has those trackers i would like to know how to block them.

My Firefox bookmark menus are often taller than my screen.

When I select a bookmark well down in the current menu by typing a letter, for example "T", the menu display scrolls down to the first matching choice, but that choice can be mostly covered by the down-caret indicating more choices further down. I can see the top of the highlight for the current choice, but I can't read the text of the choice.

Not a big deal, but I'm hoping it's an easy fix. Thank you!

Couldnt get it to work with about:config general.useragent.override accessibility.AOM.enabled When i richtklick, nothing happens.

Im not looking for an addon to change my user-agent, pretty sure it is somehow possible within firefox. There are browsers like opera and other applications like aurora store which by default allow it easly to use a custom user-agent. This is great privacy feature, since firefox is a privacy browser how hard can it be?
