I use both firefox and firefox-bin to have a fallback if a just-installed version doesn’t work well.

Perfect Gentleman: could you elaborate on what this ebuild changes and share where it is maintained?

It turn off telemetry and data reporting (or tries at least), applies opensuse-kde patches, also extra patches from fedora and debian, disables spying system extensions and disables some options.
It is maintained in my overlay.
