Why 3 browser and disabled IPv6?
I don't exactly have an answer why do I have 3 browsers...I use chrome for my day-to-day operations and for watching my subscribed youtube videos, but when I do want to search for some videos on youtube I does that on Firefox, so that Google does not show related content based on my search on my subscribed account. The other browser ( ms edge) I don't use at all...it was there in 20h2, so kept it that way. My ISP don't support ipv6, hence it's disabled.

Firefox, so that Google does not show related content based on my search on my subscribed account.
That's not how it works. They know your IP which is enough.
My ISP don't support ipv6, hence it's disabled.
Okay but you will forget your setting if they provide it on their side and you don't have any disadvantage if you let it enabled.
