    Telemetry disabled by default for me. Maybe because I didn’t want to contribute to Mozilla Firefox after I installed it.

    Just because they might share the usage stats that doesnt mean it is not anonymous.

    Anoymous:

    1-without any name acknowledged, as that of author, contributor, or
    the like: an anonymous letter to the editor; an anonymous donation.

    2.Of unknown name; whose name is withheld: an anonymous author.

    and for me the telemetry is turned off by default.

    Go to about:telemetry to see what Firefox will send in Telemetry. Nothing personal there. And for sure nothing that identify me as me.
