Google Plus Mozilla - Whether You Want It or Not (updated)

[UPDATE (SLIGHTLY) 2017-12-05] The latest edition of Mozilla's FireFox browser is now pre-rigged to aggressively force the use of the Google search engine by default. This is nothing new, though it may be to you, and now it is getting worse. For a history lesson about this relationship and what most people don't know, see the SlashDot article about when it started in 2011.

For those who prefer a [much] more privacy secure search engine, see this article on how to force FireFox to use or (not ".com"). Soon as we have time, we will add these instructions to our Resources > Internet section.

While Firefox is the most privacy secure but convenient browser, Google is not privacy secure... from Google itself. The above references will inform and assist you in returning Firefox to what it should be.
