Is Firefox moving in the same direction as Microsoft?

Posted

I have been a huge fan of Firefox for many years. I donate money to the company because I believe in the product. The development team has done a very good job growing the products.

I am slowly seeing little annoyances pop in the browser product that is reminding me more of IE. I am loosing my control over the product. I realize the annoyances I am seeing are to protect me but as a seasoned technical person I know where to go on the internet and what links not to click on. After Firefox update 62 you can no longer disable update notifications. I totally get there are more less technical users of Firefox out there then there are IT experts. You are trying to protect the less techy folks for the greater good.

I ask the dev team to please remember us Tech Savvy individuals and if you hide settings in the preferences container to please please leave them in the other container.

Thanks, your biggest fan!
