Here are some things you can do to keep Firefox from sending too much information to Google. Break the tie between Firefox and Google.

While watching my computer and how it connects to the internet, I have noticed that my computer is usually connected to a Google server. I don’t want my computer connected to anything unless I direct it to. So, I am blocking Google from accessing the web with my computer. Here is how I did it using Vista’s firewall:
I have been watching my computer lately to see what it’s doing on the internet. I want to make sure I haven’t been hacked. I’m surprised how many different IP addresses my computer connects to without my consent. GoogleToolbarNotifier.exe is one of them.
