Rick - I've never know anyone to post such cryptic posts as you.

Would you like to explain what you are talking about because I doubt any of us are mind readers and certainly not me.

Open Firefox "Options" > "Advanced" > "Data Choices" and uncheck all the boxes.

And/ Or,  enter "about:config" in the address bar (without the "s), and set the following as below:

toolkit.telemetry.archive.enabled to false
toolkit.telemetry.enabled to false
toolkit.telemetry.unified to false

Or in a similar vein to Julian' suggestion, Pale Moon and Sandboxie work well, and that is on a super low spec machine.

Hi, I have checked the link and also saw some of the posts.
                i did as you say in the options, advanced menu. The second toolkit.telemetry is by default in false position and so left it as it is . But on completing the commands , suddenly i experienced black screen , with no monitor, no browsing .. etc.
                  i just saw the monitor blue light just staying for some minutes. I just force close the computer by power off and then rebooted . The first boot was not success , but second success. Is that anything to do with disabling this telemetry entries

Very, very unlikely that changing browser settings would affect PC boot.

Hi, Rick, would you give some more lines. Which file i have to delete. You mean the firefox application? If a word is added to your crisp reply, the exact thing would be known.

So, did you uninstall Firefox or Windows OS?

I would have thought that in China there are far greater powers keeping a closer eye on your online activity than Mozilla  :wink:
