@kate It's easily disabled. I'm not a fan of it, but they have to make money somehow.

And at this point they're vastly losing, so there might come a time in the near future where we don't have a choice and can't disable this stuff.

So I still appreciate the Firefox team for all the hardwork and keeping the browser free and allowing easy ways to disable this stuff.

@ozoned @kate Mozilla also had huge layoffs in 2020, so I'm not surprised.

@trueneutralocto @kate

That's scary. I seriously don't want to think of a world without someone like @mozilla there to try to keep the internet open and free.


Free Software isn't free (as beer) to produce, but do Mozilla really need to pay million-dollars salaries to its top executives ?

Maybe if they stopped doing that they'll find themselves with enough money to maintain a good web browser...


@Iutech @kate

I don't know what they NEED to do, because I don't work there. But it seems like you have the solution to their problems. Have you attempted to get a job there? Have you attempted to contribute to the code base to help make it a good web browser? I'm sure they'd be happy to hear your suggestions that you can solve their money problems.

@Iutech @ozoned @kate

technically firefox may still be the "best" browser, but it's due to browsers degrading generally... at most i would say firefox has a "barely passing" score.

its ui is largely uncustomizable. and they continue to make unconfigurable bad ui decisions. i feel very sad about this.
