    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.

    Since the latest Firefox update allah the colors on FR and AT&T Yahoo mail are all wonky, The background colors have gone to never-neverland, link font colors have gone to a very pale blue, my posts are no longer green with envy, etc. Everybody's screen names are Grape Ape purple. Worst of all, the fundraiser thermometer bar has gone from a rich ruby red worthy of Dorothy's slippers to invisible!!!

    NewsBusters ^ | 7/2/2021 | Joseph Vazquez
    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...

    Mozilla has decided to join the Progressive fascists. I am leaving Mozilla behind as of today. I am writing this while on the Brave browser. It's just a start in the move from Firefox. After sufficient investigation today I will move my Email out of the use of the Thunderbird Email client. I have enjoyed using both Firefox and Thunderbird. But Mozilla has made continuing with them a treasonous act, cow towing to fascist thought and speech control demands. I would ask all Conservatives using Mozilla products to follow me in the move away from them.
  • Mozilla Threatens to Go Beyond Deplatforming in Creepy Statement

    01/10/2021 9:57:19 AM PST · by Lera · 106 replies ^ | January 9, 2021
    The “siege” against the Capitol – which mostly amounted to a group of dressed up LARPers walking around after being let in by police – prompted the failing web browser brand to claim: “Changing these dangerous dynamics requires more than just the temporary silencing or permanent removal of bad actors from social media platforms.” The newly defined goals of the company include exposing who advertisers are; and revealing networks of people who are guilty of wrongthink. Mitchell Baker also wants to make default across his systems the amplification of corporate news voices over third party or entry-level providers. Their full...

    Mozilla, the developer of Firefox browser, says “more must be done” to rid cyberspace of President Trump and other bad actors. Mozilla argues that banning and permanent removal of bad actors is not enough. Mozilla tweeted out that the unrest at the Capitol was the “culmination of a four-year disinformation campaign orchestrated by the President.”
  • Mozilla Says ‘Deplatforming’ Trump Not Enough, Wants to Shield Internet from ‘Bad Actors’ as Users Uninstall Firefox in Disgust

    News Wars ^ | 1-9-21 | Jamie White
    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 Foundation ^ | July 2020 | Mozilla Support
    Dayglored Note: Many Thunderbird users are finding operational issues after updating to Version 78 (including me). This FAQ addresses some of them, in particular the deprecation of TLSv1.1 and earlier, which will cause Thunderbird to be unable to send/receive email from some mail servers. I have copied the FAQ content regarding that particular issue below. The whole page is useful, and is found here: After upgrading to Thunderbird 78, I cannot get or send email messages. One reason why this might happen is when your email provider is using outdated security protocols. Thunderbird takes protecting the privacy and security...

    I’m looking for some computer help. I(n the past, I've used Mozilla Thunderbird as an email vacuum, so that every time I run it it’s soaks up all the email in my regular email account, and then deletes those from my regular web mail account. I’ve done it like this in the past, but I had a system crash, and I’m reinstalling Thunderbird on one of my machines so that I can use it again to soak up email and then delete it from my email account. I’ve got it so that duplicates emails from my account, but can’t seem...

    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...
  • 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...

    Cnet ^ | Jan 2, 2020 | Oscar Gonzalez , Laura Hautala
    Mozilla, maker of the Firefox web browser, says it's giving all users more control of their own data. The change is spurred by the California Consumer Privacy Act, or CCPA, which went into effect Wednesday. The new data privacy law gives California residents the right to know what personal data tech companies collect. It also enables people to ask companies to delete their data and not sell it. Mozilla said changes it's making under the CCPA will apply to every Firefox user, not just those in California. In a blog post Tuesday, Mozilla said it'll give Firefox users the option...

    Ask Internet entrepreneur and Silicon Valley venture capitalist Reid Hoffman how he decides which companies to invest in, and he’ll tell you he has a simple litmus test to determine whether to give the idea a closer look. “I want to invest in companies that play to one or more of the seven deadly sins,” Hoffman said. For those a bit rusty, those sins would be: lust, gluttony, greed, sloth, wrath, envy and pride. Hoffman, best known as co-founder of LinkedIn, says the business-professional networking-platform most embodies the deadly sin of greed. “In the end, LinkedIn is helping someone earn...

    I am not much of a vanity poster. This morning I have noticed that Firefox had disabled my browser extensions for Ghostery and Adblock plus. I tried to install several other adblock anti-trackers and none of them will install. I have tried to re-install them yet I am denied. I hate to wave goodbye to Firefox as I have been onboard since the Netscape days. But, I cannot get these extensions to install no matter what I do and I will dump them if they want to force the issue
