Mozilla question
vanity

Posted on 04/05/2014 6:51:15 PM PDT by airedale

I was wondering which software companies and developers were pushing for the CEO' s scalp. I know Rarebit is one, but I do not use dating websites. I have already deleted Firefox and Thuderbird, but I want to get rid of any software from the petty tyrants that are on a jihad to enforce there point of view. If we do not stop this in the bud what's next? If you agree pro-life, a small government supporter, conservative or libertarian, support Israel, etc do you lose your job or have to wear some other scarlet letter? Some both here and in Britain have called for those who do not support climate change to be fired and jailed.

I am going to ditch Moxilla over its removal of Brendan Eich as CEO.

I like Firefox, but I don't like their politics...so they can kiss my conservative fanny buh-bye.

I already moved all our comps over from Firefox to Opera today. Was a little difficult to get the bookmarks over, but it so far appears faster.

Pale Moon. Almost identical to Firefox.
http://www.palemoon.org/download-ng.shtml
I had it installed, running with all of my bookmarks in less than five minutes. Not a single hiccup.

Also:

From the Pale Moon Facebook page:
“Since several people have been asking about this: Pale Moon is in no way associated or affiliated with the Mozilla Corporation.”
https://www.facebook.com/PaleMoonBrowser

Pale Moon also accepts donations. Let Mozilla see the revenue that they’re standing to lose due to their decisions.

I absolutely LOVE Opera, although I recommend the older Opera 12.x over the latest, because the latest has actually deleted several very nice features.

Opera's note-taking feature was a great tool in the writing of my book. Also, their email client is quite advanced - it uses "tagging" rather than the ancient "folder" paradigm. The built-in IRC is also quite handy if you ever have use for IRC.

I think of Firefox as a "developer's browser" and Opera as a "productivity browser".

I just migrated my Firefox bookmarks to Chrome after uninstalling Firefox. I’ve never tried Opera. What’s so great about it? Does it let you have drop-down search engines like Firefox?

No pull down choices but you can change search engines in settings. It uses the address bar as the search input window.

Mozilla gets money from Google when someone uses Google through Firefox. However, free or commercial, this is a case of it not being about the money, but about the principle of the thing.

Pale Moon’s developer goes by the name Moonchild. Very occultic connotations. Of course it might not mean anything.

After uninstalling Firefox and Chrome (an unnamed individual whom resides in our household installed Chrome after the Firefox debacle), and I installed Pale Moon, I discovered that I can no longer log onto Facebook.

Got any ideas as to why this happened?

Here is a statement from PaleMoon:

“Pale Moon (and Moonchild Productions) is in no way associated or affiliated with the Mozilla Corporation or Mozilla Foundation. Pale Moon nor the developer have any ties with Mozilla, financially or otherwise. Mozilla does not benefit from people using Pale Moon.”

“On a more personal note: I do not agree with Mozilla’s management decisions, recent design decisions or the rather upsetting CEO resignation and controversy around it. Even though I personally don’t agree with the ex-CEO’s views, and understand the resistance against it and dissociation people might feel to a company with someone in a leading position actively opposing gay rights, Mozilla’s response of making him immediately resign was a display of severe lack of tolerance for different views.
I believe in freedom, respect, tolerance and choice. I will always attempt to make Pale Moon and the driving forces behind it reflect that, and will not judge anyone on their personal beliefs, so long as they respect my own.”

Hmm. That didn’t happen to my Wife or myself. I was still logged onto FR, IMDB, Facebook, and all of my other sites. Weird.

Try logging out of FB, checking your email for any FB messages concerning your account, then logging back on.

THAT'S the issue. It's not whether a browser company is pro-gay marriage. It would be very hard to find one that is NOT.

It's the INTOLERANCE and high-tech lynching of people who don't toe the liberal line that is the real issue.

Plus the fact that Eich apologized.

No not good enough for the mob.

He must be ruined forever.

I used to think George Takei was amusing, but he's a big fascist.

My wife likes Modern Family, and I can put up with the silly antics of Cam and Mitch.

But I was so pissed off that this weeks show was ruined for me.

Not funny anymore.

People have the freedom within the framework of the Constitution as well as laws to do what ever they please in this country. Well, this used to be the case.

Individuals are being singled out simply because they hold to a differing view, and these individuals are being forced to resign from their jobs because a group of people didn’t like the way in which they voted, or donated to a cause.

We have the right and liberty to vote with our pocketbooks, and protest by expressing our views and choosing to take our business elsewhere.

Individuals who state such idiotic comments such as, “protests don’t work”, miss the point. It’s not whether or not “it works”. It’s our actions in and of itself that matters. If our decisions should result in a greater understanding, and change of ideas for the good, that’s perfect. If it doesn’t, that’s wasn’t the most important goal in the first place.

I have installed Opera. The Home page features something called “Speed Dial” which I guess is a little like the drop-down search engines of Firefox. However, I am having trouble figuring out bookmarks in Opera. I want to import my Chrome bookmarks (which were imported from Firefox). I don’t even see “Bookmarks” anywhere on the browser. Is “Stash” the Opera version of bookmarks? If not, is there a way to add bookmarks to the toolbar? I’ve tried googling this with no success.

Click the Opera Icon. Choose settings then browser. Down that page is a place to check Toolbar. Then you go to the browser and there is a plus sign to add sites.

I’m using an older version of Opera (12.12) I’ve used it occationally for many years. Click on the Opera button (upper left corner) book marks should be there somewhere. To import bookmarks click the same button then go to settings->import and export. You will have to export bookmarks from Firefox before you can import them into Opera. Hope that helps

Thanks for the suggestions, guys. I never thought to click on the logo. The version of Opera I am using seems to only allow for the Bookmarks toolbar, which I have added. From googling, I gather that the Bookmarks folder was removed, but is coming back in the next version of Opera.

Since deleting Firefox and trying both Chrome and Opera, I am finding that both are much faster. I suspect my Firefox installation may have been corrupted through the years due to various toolbar Search trojans, etc that were installed/deleted.

My thought exactly. I just walk away from such people, quietly -- like how I quietly(*) walked away from Firefox last week.

*-- other than a few posts like this one not using my RL name. I say "quietly" in the sense of "without making a big online show about it," in contrast to the mau-mauing of Eich.

I had Firefox instead of Chrome. Below are the steps I used to move the bookmarks over to Oprah. Its possible Chrome has a similar bookmark export feature. Opera wanted it to be a HTML file if you have that option.

Step 1. In FireFox Open bookmarks up to show all bookmarks. At the top is “import and export;” Export bookmarks to an html file you can find. I did mine on desktop in a folder called Bookmarks.

Then in Opera get Bookmarks Manager extension. Install it. It will ask for bookmarks to import. Locate the HTML file you created and import it. You end up with a option far right top corner that you click on and all your bookmarks are there.

Only one software company mattered.

90% of Mozilla's revenue comes from Google

The ONLY thing that matters is keeping gay-friendly Google happy, and this uproar does not affect Google.

Did a little Googling yesterday, and discovered that the gay dating website that led the witch hunt, “OK Cupid,” is owned by a larger online dating company called “Match.com.” Don’t know who they are owned by, but I suspect following that chain will lead you to all sorts of interesting places in terms of the homosexual power brokers.

Of course Google was also trying to force World Vision to adopt the homosexual agenda. When World Vision reversed course and said no, Google pulled its representative off the board, and presumably dropped financial support.
