The browser comes with some changes and privacy enhancements that you can access from the Settings page and that are configured so that the browser can control the type of data it shares with Mozilla and sends to Mozilla servers.

Start Firefox Quantum, select’Menu’ (3 items) and select Options. Then go to the’Privacy and Security’ section on the’Settings’ page. Here you can specify that Firefox can send technical data and interaction data, among other things. But even after setting these options, Firefox continues to collect and send data to the servers.
