And what makes you think that Google doesn't have them anyway? BTW, Isn't FF 
shiped with Google as the default search engine? Or does it really make much
of difference changing it to anything else (I must confess I did, I use 
Startpage instead. It gives a kind of a sweet illusion.)

I use uMatrix and it is a very revealing tool. About 90% of websites, if
not more, are simply not usable unless you allow Google sniffing anyway.

Well, it is a sad reality, I agree. But there is not much we can do about
it.
