  • Leaving Mozilla Today

    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.

    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

    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...
  • Thunderbird 78 FAQ (Mozilla Thunderbird email client version 78 issues and resolution)

    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: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/thunderbird-78-faq 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...

    About this Add-on: Moves the toolbar for mails back up above the tabbar. Note that this might cause the design to suffer when using a theme not supporting this extension. So the default theme has issues with aero on windows (and looks as terrible as it looked before the changes in 1.11).

    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...

    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

    I have a question for browser-savvy FReepers. I downloaded Pale Moon, which seems to be a good browser. A lot of FReepers use it, and that is how I first heard of it. It changed the font size on my email to about 350 percent, and I cannot find a way to reduce it back to 100 percent (i.e., normal size.) Can anyone tell me how to do it? Thank you.

    Silicon Valley is in thrall to the cult of diversity. Its measures its employees against racial metrics even as an industry, whose engine is meant to be the intellect, purges any hint of intellectual diversity. It happened at Mozilla with Brendan Eich, the creator of Javascript. It happened at Google with James Damore. Now it happened at Facebook with Palmer Luckey. Luckey's Oculus fueled the race for virtual reality. Facebook bought his company for a fortune. And then it forced him out because he supported Trump and opposed Hillary.

    Google’s security foibles, its “aggregate and advertise” model, its avoidance of price signals, its silos of customer data, and its visions of machine mind are unlikely to survive the root-and-branch revolution of distributed peer-to-peer technology, which I call the “cryptocosm.” Today, all around us, scores of thousands of engineers and entrepreneurs are contriving a new system of the world that transcends the limits and illusions of the Google realm. In the Google era, the prime rule of the Internet is “Communications first.” That means everything is free to be copied, moved, and mutated. While most of us welcome “free” on...

    Today, we are announcing the Mozilla Information Trust Initiative (MITI)—a comprehensive effort to keep the Internet credible and healthy. Mozilla is developing products, research, and communities to battle information pollution and so-called ‘fake news’ online. And we’re seeking partners and allies to help us do so. Here’s why. Imagine this: Two news articles are shared simultaneously online. The first is a deeply reported and thoroughly fact checked story from a credible news-gathering organization. Perhaps Le Monde, the Wall Street Journal, or Süddeutsche Zeitung. The second is a false or misleading story. But the article is designed to mimic content from...

    What’s become abundantly clear over the past few months is that liberals are now jumping on the anti-fake news bandwagon and using it as an excuse to censor political speech that doesn’t align with their radical agenda. This strategy is perhaps most prominent on social media and various websites across the Internet, including Facebook, Twitter and YouTube, and is implemented by teams of leftists and extremists like George Soros who show zero regards for the freedom of speech outlined in the First Amendment. It’s as if the ability to control what information is spread across the Internet and what information...

    Sorry for the vanity but my frustration with Firefox drove me here. I'll look on the internet too. After I get my airline reservations done. I've switched over to Pale Moon but wanted to check here. Over the last few months Firefox goes into process loops that lasts for a minute or two or more. This morning I tried to cross check prices on airline flights using several tabs and Firefox just like dies looping. I don't want to do a reset 'cause I lose settings. Did a reset a couple of months back and lost all my Reminder entries....
