Greetings everyone,

I know this may sound like a strange question, but I'm very serious.

I just read an article that says Firefox is in danger of being shut down

I've always seen Firefox as the most trustworthy web browser and so I was planning on using Firefox as my main web browser for the long term. However, after reading this article I've become very anxious.

Article link: https://news.slashdot.org/story/20/08/15/1955237/can-firefox-be-saved

I'd really appreciate any advice.

I have to keep reinstalling everything and losing most of my files in the process. I'm tired of trying to talk to Microsoft because they don't care. Is Windows going to be better or should I just get rid on my computer? I have lost all of my Architectural Specifications and closed down my business. Microsoft doesn't care and tells me to go someplace else if I don't like their Programs. I would someone to show me how to fix this mess.

I deleted all bookmarks & several unused apps to create space, but I have now lost Excel and Word! Does anyone know if it possible to get them back? I feel like I have chopped a finger off! Thank you.

I received a few pop up messages saying 86% of memory was in use, so I thought I would look and see if I could remove any memory-guzzling content to free up some space. I… (read more)

I received a few pop up messages saying 86% of memory was in use, so I thought I would look and see if I could remove any memory-guzzling content to free up some space. I deleted all my bookmarks and then deleted a few apps for things I never use (games, Skype, Zoom etc...). I have now discovered that Excel and Word, amongst others that I also did not delete, have disappeared too! Is there any way that I can get these back, or undo all the deletions? I am not very tech savvy as you can probably tell. Thank you.

I dont care what you are going to say to make it sound okay, it is NOT OKAY AT ALL. Mozilla Firefox supposed to be a Privacy Browser is not making business with Meta -> Facebook, lately i really question the mental health of Mozilla, first a unique identifier, now a partnership with zucking facebook, what's next? Let me tell you something, if you are a privacy company then get the zuck away from companies who don't give a damn zuck about privacy -> facebook, mozilla can NOT simply make a deal with facebook and claim "oh dont worry it's ok your privacy is secure, bullsh!t.

You know what, i have been using Firefox since i first accessed the internet with a webbrowser, now hear this -> one more negative thing from mozilla and that's it, bye mozilla you have lost your way.

While this is only me speaking here, MANY people have already quit firefox because of what mozilla has been doing recently. Continue what you are doing now, and soon your greatest product -> firefox will be dead. When privacy partners with tracking & spyware this is the definition of suicidal behaviour. I really worry about Mozillas Mental Health lately.

I will copy paste this post to a few other mozilla releated forums, let's see how long it stays on before censorship happens.


Here a few comments from reddit users on this topic:

The article says what it says, but we all have a long memory of Facebook/ Rebranded Facebook being a company that is horrible, and not to be trusted when they put out a press release. -Nailed it

I’ve been using Firefox since like 2002. I never stopped. I really hope I don’t have to soon. I will give them the benefit of the doubt. -Nailed it

Facebook is one company you should keep away as far as possible. -Nailed it

Then read the article, and see that this is a case of Mozilla working with Meta to maintain privacy. -This person must have mental issues, time to see a doctor asap!
