    I went to check out the “Black Menu for Google” extension and saw this:

    Permissions, this add-on can:
    – Access your data for sites in the google.com domain
    – Access your data for sites in the googleapis.com domain
    – Access your data for sites in the googleusercontent.com domain
    – Access your data for sites in the gstatic.com domain
    – Read and modify bookmarks
    – Access your location
    – Monitor extension usage and manage themes
    – Display notifications to you
    – Access browsing history

    And I became deeply suspicious because the permissions did not match the description of what the extension does.

      I beleive some of those are required for google services to function.
      You should be able to block firfox from accessing your location in system preferences.
