Why did you sell out and start censoring using the fake news spin , so many will leave you for this decision. We believe in free speach.

Hi peacedreamer, I don't think anyone is "looking into censoring" pages you can view in Firefox.

As you may know, Firefox currently has two filtering features that you can enable/disable:

Otherwise, Firefox shows websites as they are sent by the servers.

You can keep an eye on the sites I mentioned before to follow news of changes in Firefox. I can guarantee you anything important won't escape notice.

Who told you Firefox is censoring what you see in the browser??

There is not a "fake news" filter in Firefox 61. Maybe there will be an add-on or feature for that some day, once everyone can agree on what should be filtered. Ha ha, good luck with that.

To keep up with major changes in Firefox, my reply in the following thread from last August lists good sites to monitor Firefox developments:

Ok so they are not yet censoring but are looking into it. My issue is Facebook , twitter and You Tube have already taken down many good sites covering gardening , especially organic , many health channels and pages with natural and very effective remedies and independent news channels whom are creditable and factual in the name of so called 'fake news'. As Mozilla is looking at the methods of filtering that Soros is using , this means without doubt heavy censoring of truths in the name of 'fake news ' will be filtered out. This move by mozilla undermines the reason many use firefox like myself and my family. Privacy is very important but censoring does not belong on the internet. How does anyone know the truth , many truths take years to surface , what can seem like ridiculous often can become very much the opposite. Will we be informed when they begin to tamper with our free flow of information is my main concern as then without doubt I will leave. Thanks for replying.
