Or use Waterfox where telemetry is disabled by default.

install waterfox tarball

Step 1 :download the .tar file and then move it to the directory where you want to install it.

sudo mv waterfox-G4.0.5.en-US.linux-x86_64.tar.bz2 /opt

cd /opt/

sudo tar -xjvf waterfox-G4.0.2.1.en-US.linux-x86_64.tar.bz2

sudo chown -R $USER /opt/waterfox

pluma ~/.local/share/applications/waterfox.desktop

it’ll open pluma text editor where you need to insert the specifications of the desktop entry.
paste the following in the editor and save.

[Desktop Entry]
Exec=/opt/waterfox/waterfox %u

chmod +x ~/.local/share/applications/waterfox.desktop

finally you can remove the .tar file using the following command

sudo rm -rf waterfox*.tar.bz2
