@kate It's easily disabled. I'm not a fan of it, but they have to make money somehow.
And at this point they're vastly losing, so there might come a time in the near future where we don't have a choice and can't disable this stuff.
So I still appreciate the Firefox team for all the hardwork and keeping the browser free and allowing easy ways to disable this stuff.
I don't know what they NEED to do, because I don't work there. But it seems like you have the solution to their problems. Have you attempted to get a job there? Have you attempted to contribute to the code base to help make it a good web browser? I'm sure they'd be happy to hear your suggestions that you can solve their money problems.
