    Firefox popped up with an update and having OK'd a couple of 'em in the past, I OK'd THIS one. ALL of my shortcuts are gone, I can't figure out how to input new ones (I had to type in FR to get HERE).

    I see The Lord picking up a gem and brushing it off then he breathes into it and it comes alive as he laughs and smiles so many colors of light shine forth from it in all directions . He holds it up high and then let's go of it as it rises out of his hand pulsating with delightful colors of the rainbow . I hear him saying " Rise up oh well , Rise up even higher for The Voice of many waters is calling to you for His Glory ! And this Gem is you . Revelation...
  • Google Chrome 100 Trips Up Websites That Can't Count That High...Version 100 problems are rare but also affect Mozilla Firefox and Microsoft Edge.

    03/31/2022 7:05:25 AM PDT · by Red Badger · 14 replies ^ | March 30, 2022 3:12 p.m. PT | Stephen Shankland
    Google on Tuesday released Chrome 100, an iteration of the popular browser that can trip up websites that weren't written to handle three-digit version numbers. It's a problem that, though rare, also affects people using Mozilla Firefox and Microsoft Edge. The problem crops up because developers sometimes try to adapt their websites for particular browser versions. Browsers share their version number through a short text description called the user agent string, but website scripts sometimes extract just two of the three digits in the version number. Problems can include websites not working at all or showing a popup erroneously saying...

    Greetings: Can anybody here point me to a non-PC web browser that can post images as wallpaper? I have both Microsoft Edge and Gab Dissenter, but neither appears to be capable of posting images as wallpaper. I was thinking of downloading Firefox again, as I've had it before, and it can create wallpapers from images. Unfortunately, I have no idea whether that lunatic who wanted to squash Trumpian internet thought is still in charge of Mozilla. (FD: I do use Firefox on my work laptop, and it's fine for that purpose and used by lots of us at work, along...

    The Mozilla Foundation, the entity that oversees the Mozilla Firefox internet browser, is now accepting donations in cryptocurrency. One of the browser's founders is not happy about it. The company tweeted on Dec. 31: "Dabble in @dogecoin? HODLing some #Bitcoin & Ethereum? We're using @BitPay to accept donations in #cryptocurrency." Jamie "jwz" Zawinski, who helped build the Mozilla Project that was released in 2002, tweeted in response that he's "here to say f.. you and f... this."... ...He wasn't the only one to level criticism at Mozilla's move on Twitter this week.

    In the address bar, Mozilla is now displaying ads disguised as Firefox contextual suggestions for US users. The company claims it introduced the feature to “fund development and optimization.” “Beginning in Firefox version 92, you will also receive new, relevant suggestions from our trusted partners based on what you’re searching for. No new data is collected, stored, or shared to make these new recommendations,” Mozilla said.
  • Quit Google Chrome For One Of These 3 Privacy-Friendly Alternatives

    Forbes ^ | Sep 11, 2021 | Kate O'Flaherty Senior Contributor Cybersecurity
    There has long been a movement to ditch Google Chrome, but many people end up going back to the browser, simply because it functions well and many apps are optimised for it. But recent moves by Google—such as the delayed but widely believed to be privacy-infringing FLoC update—are pushing people to say it: Enough is enough, it’s time to quit Chrome. *** Firefox is the number one alternative if you want to ditch Chrome, and that’s because of its privacy ethos. Firefox is owned by Mozilla, a non-profit, so it doesn’t need to perform tracking to serve you ads. ***...

    The U.S. Supreme Court handed a stunning defeat to the enemies of the First Amendment by invalidating a California law forcing nonprofits to disclose their largest donors — and liberals are losing it. Chief Justice John Roberts wrote the opinion of the Court in Americans for Prosperity Foundation v. Bonta, Attorney General of California. The syllabus for the opinion reasoned that “California’s disclosure requirement imposes a widespread burden on donors’ associational rights.” It continued: “[T]his burden cannot be justified on the ground that the regime is narrowly tailored to investigating charitable wrongdoing, or that the State’s interest in administrative convenience...

  • Microsoft announces retirement of Internet Explorer

    Microsoft said it is retiring Internet Explorer, the browser it created more than 25 years and which is now largely abandoned as people instead use competitors like Google's Chrome or Apple's Safari. "We are announcing that the future of Internet Explorer on Windows 10 is in Microsoft Edge," the company said in a blog post Wednesday, referring to its other browser. "Not only is Microsoft Edge a faster, more secure and more modern browsing experience than Internet Explorer, but it is also able to address a key concern: compatibility for older, legacy websites and applications," Microsoft said. People ribbed Internet...

  • We need more than deplatforming ............ [Mozilla]

    01/11/2021 5:22:16 AM PST · by Red Badger · 36 replies ^ | Mitchell Baker | January 8, 2021
    There is no question that social media played a role in the siege and take-over of the US Capitol on January 6. Since then there has been significant focus on the deplatforming of President Donald Trump. By all means the question of when to deplatform a head of state is a critical one, among many that must be addressed. When should platforms make these decisions? Is that decision-making power theirs alone? But as reprehensible as the actions of Donald Trump are, the rampant use of the internet to foment violence and hate, and reinforce white supremacy is about more than...

    Mozilla, developer of the Firefox internet browser, has argued that more must be done to keep Donald Trump and other “bad actors” out of cyberspace, prompting many to vow to never use the group’s services again. In a blog post titled ‘We need more than deplatforming’, the open-source software community said that Twitter’s decision to permanently ban Trump from its platform didn’t go far enough in weeding out “hate” on the internet. While blaming Trump for the “siege and take-over” of the US Capitol on January 6, the non-profit tech group argued that “white supremacy is about more than any...

    Mozilla has been watching the user share of its flagship Firefox web browser shrink for a while, so it was hardly a surprise last week when the company announced it was doing some belt tightening that would result in another round of layoffs. What was a surprise were the numbers involved: The company is laying off about 250 employees, for a staff reduction of 25%, and is completely closing its operations in Taipei, Taiwan. In addition, 60 employees will be shifted to new jobs, and the company will reduce spending on such things as developer tools, internal tooling and platform...

    This rusty ol’ internet of ours sure has a lot to offer, but man, oh man, can it be annoying to use. From ad-infested websites to autoplaying videos and an endless array of pop-up provocations, it’s a wonder anyone makes it through the day without going completely berserk. It doesn’t have to be that way, though. With a little fine-tuning and some carefully considered additions, surfing the web can actually become—dare I say it—almost pleasant. All it takes is about 10 minutes of your time, and your desktop browser will be loaded up, tricked out, and ready to give you...
  • Firefox turns controversial new encryption on by default in the US

    02/27/2020 2:16:36 PM PST · by ransomnote · 14 replies ^ | Feb 25, 2020 | Jon Porter
    Starting today, Mozilla will turn on by default DNS over HTTPS (DoH) for Firefox users in the US, the company has announced. DoH is a new standard that encrypts a part of your internet traffic that’s typically sent over an unencrypted plain text connection, and which could allow others to see what websites you’re visiting, even when your communication with the website itself is encrypted using HTTPS. Mozilla says it is the first browser to support the new standard by default, and will be rolling it out gradually over the coming weeks in order to address any unforeseen issues.Whenever you...
