Wrong.

Firefox runs your website searches through Google's blacklist service. Go back to where you came from, Reddit.

Set the google strings to null (or "") if you want.

Though yes you should refer to the web browsers section of this suckless.org/rocks if you want something that isn't a pile of shit.

Damn, I knew FF was shady a while back when I saw how much they got from Google in '15, and was scared away when it was showed that FF leaked data to some site on purpose, but this is even bigger. This begs the question, which browsers don't listen to Google's blacklist/whitelist and malwarelist unconditionaly? I've been using the FF port IceCat, which is audited by FDroid as okay (they said FF wasn't), but what about their *lists.
