Feels like heavy censorship this was closed right away shortly after creating the thread... https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1390467

Why was this closed? Why would Dropa recommend private browsing mode / incognito mode? This mode has nothing to do with being private, google safe browsing, do i have to say more? Google and privacy don't fit !!! Besides, there are SO MANY youtube videos where people explain why incognito mode IS NOT private, so to be honest that is a really lame response to what i have said in the original post.

Incognito mode refers to not saving session data to the profile folder and has nothing to do with what you seems to think about privacy. Google Safe Browsing is about using a Google database to check if a website is safe or has been reported, see also the about:url-classifier page. This doesn't mean that your visits are shared with Google as this service only uses the first 32 bits of hashed URLs and it this matches then a full list is requested and compared with the full hash.

You can find on the "Help -> More Troubleshooting Information" (about:support) page what keys are present in your Firefox version like the Google Safebrowsing Key.
