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!

Hello

Is it somehow possible to lock my settings by a password or to make a login necessary to open the settings. I run my firefox on different devices and everyone who uses it can easely see all the saved password, change all my settings and so on. I don't want to log off every time I quit the browser.

Thank you for your quick response.

Greetings

Chris

The description is "The extension can read the content of any webpage you visit as well as the data you enter there, e.g. B. Usernames and Passwords." Does this mean e.g. if I type in my bank account in a firefox browser window or a password for any other pge that this extension has access to this input/password??? Martin

Hello,

I am running FF 79 with W10 OS.

I do a lot of browsing related to ancestry. After several hours of working thing get very sluggish. What I then do is bookmark the tabs I am working on and then shutdown and restart FF. I have the history set to Remember History it and then clear it when FF closes.

I want FF to remember my sign-in information so that is why I have FF Remember History.

Is there a way to set up FF to remember the sign-in information but not remember the other browsing history so it 'fills up' my machine and slows it down? I really hope that there is but it is not obvious to me.

Thanks in advance for your help!

Firefox just started asking for a "master password", which I never established. When I try to uncheck "Use Master Password" it asks me to enter my non-existent password. Yes, I know it's now called "primary password" but I don't have one of those either. Running Windows 10, no AVG installed.

I followed the instructions on the help site. Went to preferences. Went to Privacy and Security.

But when I try to scroll down to find the Delete Cache/Cookies (or whatever it says -- I don't know because I can't get to it!), my laptop scrolls down to Sync, the next category below Privacy & Security.

I turned off the Mac laptop and turned it back on. nothing. Help.

I'm sure I'm doing something incredibly stupid and it's a quick fix. If only there were a phone number to call . . .

I am using containers, and have made every setting I can think of to keep my log-ins private. Instead, every time I go to ProtonMail I get shown every email login I have used lately, including a gmail login I only use in a gmail container! ProtonMail advise they do not store this data.

The passwords are not stored, thank goodness.

HOW is Firefox saving it? WHERE? This is actually the creepy and intrusive tracking I came to Firefox to get away from - now they seem more like the perpetrator and I have to go right out of my way to protect myself from Firefox itself. Now I guess gmail knows all my protonmail logins.

Any solutions? I hope my tone is not too exasperated, but if there was another browser option out there right now I'd be gone in minutes.

Thank you!

Firefox for Windows 10, I believe the latest version
