Firefox is great, I had no idea about this:
This is opt-in #security.
That is: I give you an unsafe computing environment by default, but give you a little of settings to give you a little choice.
Yes, I know these settings.
And I know that people tunneling into your private network through your browser "is the Web functioning as designed": https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=1487081#c16
I know it.
Most people don't.
You raised a useful point by telling people about the communication with Google, in case it wasn't already obvious by seeing the search results appear, and in case someone would be concerned about that.
But instead of telling people how to be in control and change that behavior if they want to, you only groused and made a sarcastic comment as if FF was a piece of crap they should throw out altogether (then what would they do? Use Chrome?).

Do you really think it is obvious to non-techie?
> telling people how to be

> that behavior if they
> want to
Do you think non-techies have the understanding required to take an informed decision?
> sarcastic comment as if

Crap or not, they should throw it out: it belongs to #Google.
> Use Chrome?
Use #NetSurf. 😉
