Unlike security software (using user data to improve vulnerability detection rates), Mozilla plans to gather performance data to learn more about how it works. dynamic of Firefox browser in real environment.

Unlike security software, Telemetrt is a system reporting option. So, Mozilla does not collect data without the user's permission. Sid Stamm, a security technology engineer, emphasized security on the blog site. However, with this version of Firefox, Mozilla showed its clarity about the data collected and why they collected that data compared to other rivals such as Apple, Google and Microsoft. Currently, Telemetry evaluates on 4 main aspects: internal memory usage, startup time, collection cycle time, CPU core count. Those who are interested can install add-on about: telemetry to see the personal parameters that Firefox is collecting.

If Telemetry is enabled and you want to turn it off, users can access Options -> Advanced , and uncheck the Submit Performance Data dialog box at the bottom of the General tab.
