Mozilla, a company whose literal goal is to keep the internet free for public use, ironically makes it virtually impossible to contact them

There is literally not a more appropriate place to post this in a 2 hour online search quest to find such a place. So, to sum it up, Mozilla does not include a, "Contact" link on most of their public facing pages. Only a select few have them. Mozilla offers absolutely no way to provide feedback from what I couldn't find. Any page with the feedback box "Did this help" thumbs up and thumbs down literally results in nothing except the box disappearing when I click thumbs down. Mozilla's emails to their email list recipients have no second form of contact information on them beyond a mysterious unnamed physical address (which is illegal btw and lololol, I am disgusted about this for a company that is supposedly all about legal transparency online). Then, Mozilla's "Contact page" (https://www.mozilla.org/en-US/contact/) contains a completely broken map that shows literally nothing but appears to be intended to show geographical regions to contact. They link to a Facebook page without a contact option. There is an extremely limited support menu that looks like it was developed by a teenage web developer and which offers NO link to a Mozilla foundation support option. The dinky little "Get Help" link at the very bottom is the only thing that could even remotely be related to getting general Mozilla foundation help/offering feedback. Clicking on that routes to the help forum homepage which has zero options for Mozilla Foundation or Mozilla pages reporting broken features and etc. The Mozilla Github seems to only be tailored towards the various Mozilla coding projects but seems to be completely absent of actual Mozilla applications such as Firefox. Doing an extremely thorough Google search for the email address of Mozilla or any of its public facing representatives resulted me with absolutely zero results. Mozilla doesn't even openly provide a mailing address to the public on its website from what I could find (this is scary to think about in a scenario where I would need to mail legal documents to Mozilla). Mozilla has no publicly listed phone number anywhere on Google. I could not even find any leaked email addresses to anyone whatsoever within the Mozilla foundation, almost as if they actively scrub them from search results. This seeming lack of connection with Mozilla's actual users is quite concerning to me. Lol, if I were writing one of Mozilla's privacy review articles on Mozilla themselves, I would give a warning sign due to a designed communication-killing wall between them and their end users.

Please reroute this concern to the correct area. I know it is not posted in the right place but Mozilla literally left me with no option on a more appropriate place to leave it.

You send me to pages in a foreign language. For example,I clicked LinkedIn, and it's in a foreign language.

When I click to go to a page often it's in a foreign language that I can't understand. I speak English. My only language setting is English.

Sometimes you send me that "Prove you're not a robot" that's all in characters like Chinese. I cannot understand it at all. I like Mozilla, but may have to use Google to get some work done.

Sometimes I use a VPN (Virtual Private Network) because I handle bills and finances online. Both myself and the IP address of the VPN are in the United States. I never do anything that involves foreign countries.

I am tired of your relentless, a;most daily update notices which can't be turned off. This is an obvious Control Issue with you.

HOW DARE YOU VIOLATE MY RIGHTS AND TELL ME WHAT TO DO!

If your service is so flawed that you have to consistently update, them your users need to find another browser/ This is my plan.

Effective now, I will not use your site because of your controlling attitude, lack of support and forced actions. I suggest that other users consider doing this until Moz://a stops this controlling bull shit!

In this environment, we do NOT need someone like you telling us what to do.

You're wrong, you're stupid and you're going to loose in the long run as your users are not going to put u p with this relentless BS!

Now I am not able to send a new email. It always assumes an ongoing conversation, I do not want that at all. My email provider is WOW, they seem to be changed also. What I miss most is that when I enter a name the email address no longer appears. That ruins it totally. That is/was the very best email function but now it is gone.

I use that address to start a new conversation with a friend, and now that function is no longer found.. When I open an email the sender address is not shown, I need that address always. The sender address is vital, it is how I report scams, but more important it is how I can send a new email to the sender, I do not always want to do a reply. The size of the email is not shown, that is how I detect spam and hidden malware.

Has Mozilla been taken over by microsoft? That is what this change looks like. (Sorry, I know that sounds rather nasty, but it looks that way)

I use several different computers but I am the only user, I have not yet tried the other computers to see if the old version is still available. So far this computer is the only one updated. I need to assure that no automatic updates ever are done, EVER!!!

I read that Firefox will using the Snap version by default on Ubuntu 21.10 and beyond. Will the non-Snap version still be available in lets say Ubuntu 22.04 and beyond? The reason I ask is because I use Firejail to sandbox Firefox and Firejail doesn't work with Snaps and yes I know that Snaps and Flatpacks both sandbox apps but I prefer Firejail because of the Private Home profile (nothing is saved in this profile settings, bookmarks, add-ons etc) its way more secure than the sandbox offered by a Snap.
