The help page informs the extension that it “violates Mozilla’s policies because the search function provided or loaded by the add-on must not collect search terms or block searches from third-party search providers.

The company went on to say that FVD Speed ​​Dial developers violated the AMO rules in 2020 for the reasons mentioned earlier.
