Really unsure where else to put this, mozilla's faq and searching the issue didn't give me anything.
Starting today, whenever I use google services, firefox downloads files like 'init', 'app', 'proxy.html', 'post3.html', and copies upon copies of them. I am not doing anything that would warrant this, I am just using google drive as always. The files themselves contain some java code that I am not nearly tech savvy enough to understand. Merely using DDG search gives similar results as well.
Before this started, firefox informed me of a new security feature, so I suspect it's the cause of it. Unfortunately, I only skimmed the explanation and don't remember what it was called so I can't turn it off. Something about redirecting the traffic source? Please help.
