The update dialog box needs updating; see Firefox settings icon, ? icon (on bottom), "About Firefox" link

Posted

Please "forward" this to the Firefox development team for consideration!

Proposing the dialog box text should become:

"Firefox is designed by Mozilla, a global community of contributors and developers, all working together to keep the Web open, public, and accessible to all."

The added comma after "public" above, is referred to as an "Oxford comma" (see Rule #1 at http://www.grammarbook.com/punctuation/commas.asp ). It should be used because this section is a three-part adjectival series with "open," "public," and "accessible" each referring back to how "the Web" should be kept for us all!

As with Boolean ANDing, using "public and accessible" without a comma after "public," binds them together to tightly for a three part series of adjectives!

This support webpage cannot upload a screenshot for some reason, but you all know how to see the about dialog in Firefox for yourselves! Someone should please also add what types of images work best for uploading screenshots next to "Add Images:" on this submission webpage too.

Thanks!
