Reddit users accuse Microsoft Edge of importing data from Firefox without their permission. The war of browsers holds well.
Microsoft started the automatic release of the new Microsoft Edge browser based on Chromium on Windows 10 devices and apparently not everyone likes this approach.
In the case of Firefox users, some have found that the new default Windows 10 browser, which is shipped to their devices through Windows Update, sometimes imports data into the Mozilla application, even if they have not authorized it. .
Some Firefox users who have decided to stop the initial Microsoft Edge installation process have found that despite the driver being terminated prematurely, the browser still copies data stored by the Mozilla browser.
And the funny thing is that on Reddit which is owned by Microsoft, several users have confirmed that this behavior occurred on their computers as well.
Microsoft has not yet commented on these complaints, so it is not yet known why Edge imports data from Firefox, despite users ending the original installation wizard.
