These days, my Firefox is allowing extraneous trackers, etc., through: like yandex.ru, doubleclick, etc. These are things I kept out w/ my firewall, but also with my browser add-ons, like Ghostery, Ad-Block, and Privacy Badger. Some months ago, Firefox removed all my add-ons, and so these drags are getting through. And - I can no longer access new add-ons to download. At all. Is this happening to you?
Even as Firefox boasts that it is more privacy-robust than ever, it is pulling this crap. ALSO, it no longer allows people to run RSS feeds, unless they get an add-on for it - but wait, how can I do that if I can no longer get add-ons? Many RSS feeds serve alternative websites, like alt-left and alt-right sites, or sites that offer alternative health ideas than those of Big Pharma, and so on. This is not by accident. FF has joined the Corporate Internet fad of controlling more and more content, or thought. It began with FB and YT droppign Alex Jones, and now it is everywhere. Just wait until you read my post about Google's interference in the 2016 elections.
This is not by accident. Here is more...
From ORGANIC CONSUMERS -
"Over the past year or so, we’ve experienced some disturbing trends. Fewer and fewer of our emails are reaching our subscribers. Fewer of our articles are turning up in Google searches. At times, our web traffic is far slower than normal.
Are we doing something wrong? Or is something more sinister at work?
Natural health websites, Mercola.com and GreenMedInfo, both recently reported that their content has been virtually scrubbed from Google search engines. GreenMedInfo also reports that its email service provider doesn’t appear to be delivering all the site's emails anymore.
It seems that industries like Big Pharma don’t like to be criticized. And they’re using their power (and obscene profits) to keep you in the dark as much as possible."
