I have probably logged more time into Firefox than any human. I have remained loyal through countless let downs. I have proven quite patient. Until you fired your CEO for a very reasonable, mainstream political view? Since I strongly share his political views, I will be leaving. In fact, I already have. This entry is being sent via Google Chrome.

There are only three reasons for marriage--complying with God's law, giving women assurance that they will not be left high and dry when a man gets bored, and protecting children. Outside of these three things, marriage kind of sucks. Of course, gays want to add a fourth reason--societal acceptance. We have all been holding our nose for a century over heterosexuals who have been using marriage as a smokescreen for societal acceptance, while they marry, cavort, divorce, remarry, and so forth, and so on, pretending to conform to this ancient law. The term 'marriage' has become so polluted that it is are meaningless anyway.

This is what I'm talking about: the only Mozilla channel available for discussing this in the community is the support forums, and you unilaterally close out the one ticket I opened. You characterize Eich's resignation as voluntary, when it's clear it wasn't. Just read Mitch's also-locked-out-from-comment editorial, where she actually apologizes for not pushing Eich out sooner! CLEARLY There was no way the though police would let him stay unless he apologized for holding a perfectly legitimate personal opinion AND RECANTED.

I'm part of the mozilla community. You are locking me out. You are seizing the organization and destroying individuals. You have demolished the work of one of the largest contributors to our community.

This is evil. That is why Mozilla is locking out discussion. Because those of us with an opposing view don't deserve free speech in your eyes. "Free speech for me, but not for the."

Until you reinstate the man you sacked I will NEVER use Firefox again!


edit: Please do not sign this pledge as it was created under false misconception that he was forced out by Mozilla board. See https://blog.mozilla.org/blog/2014/04/05/faq-on-ceo-resignation/

I understand that Mozilla purports to be a company founded upon ideals of tolerance and freedom of expression. I understand that those values existed when it was founded by Eich or have developed over the years he's been a key figure in it. He held a view and chose to express it. He expressed it by doing what Americans all over the country do, by donating to a political cause, one that our own President, the former Sec. of State, and the majority of Californians held (clearly, his wasn't a radical or extremist belief). For exercising his freedom of expression, the same freedom Mozilla purports to hold as a core value, he was unceremoniously fired. That, ladies and gentlemen, is hypocrisy at best and Orwellian at worst.

I need a browser that's as good as Firefox, as committed to open source development as Firefox, and does everything Firefox does, but doesn't come from a company that's run by the thought police. I don't wish to support the NSA with Chrome or support my friendly neighborhood Russian botnet with IE. Please help.

Also, an email contact for the people who actually need to hear this complaint would be helpful, rather than forcing me to waste moderator time on an otherwise helpful support forum.

I am unable to locate the "feedback to Mozilla" form during uninstall of the Firefox browser. I would like to voice my disapproval of their disrespect of basic human rights, when they sacked their CEO for his personal views, which he never actively voiced. I have supported this project for 15 years and been extremly fond of the values of this open and free project. Unfortunately, it seems this has changed. I am alarmed by the fascist practice of ousting someone, who might be of a different political, ethical or whatever opinion. It seems, tolerance only goes one way. Diversity of opinions is not at all bad. Discrimination (i.e. abusing a stronger position and enforcing one's beliefs onto someone else) is bad. And unfortunately Mr. Eich has been a victim of severe discrimination as not any of his actions was deemed punishable, but the sheer belief that he might secretly hold an opinion, which a minority political group decided to fight. I am quite disappointed by the weak backbone of the Mozilla board and am just sorry for Mr. Eichs' shares in the company, which will also take a hit now, due to the stupidity of his leaders.

because of Mozilla's actions this week of releasing the CEO because he had an opinion about social issues I am going to remove Firefox as my browser. How do I communicate that to Mozilla? About 6 months ago I switched over from Google because of their privacy policies and the pushing of their agendas. And now Mozilla is in the same boat. Maybe there's a company that just wants to provide a service without pushing their social dogma .

@Developers: WTF are you doing to firefox?

I have been a faithful FF user for over 10 years. I own many sites (50+) which I use to make my living. So we've established that I'm not some new to the web kid. Got it? Good..

I have updated to latest version 29,521 are whatever it is this month. Who can keep up? When it's finished installing the update I have Chrome. Really? I mean it says it's FF but it looks like chrome, it acts like chrome (except for the stability) must be chrome. If I wanted chrome I would have installed it. Did Google buy you out? If not they really should sue you..

Here's just a few of my complaints: You have never been able to get FF stable and un-cpu-hoggish since like version 5. So why move on to something new when you cant seem to make the old version work worth a flip? Cant move the back button. I don't want it permanently attached to the address bar. Forward button is MIA??? Refresh button is MIA??? I know it's in the address drop down. Who's stupid idea was that? I don't want to search from the address bar. Another stupid idea... More then like 2 extensions and there goes the memory. Don't even try to use web developer... Just dont do it... Really I could go on and on....

Mozilla members don't bother trying to answer my questions. There is no answer other than 'we know it sux and were gonna fix it.' Really just want the developers to know what I and bet many others think of the latest update.... and yes I know there an option to make it look/work like the previous versions. Ever heard the saying.. ' "You can put lipstick on a pig, but it's still a pig," that applies here...

So I guess since you've tried so hard to make it Chrome, I will just use Chrome... I'll check back in a few months (next update or 2) and see if you have come to your senses..

Thanks for making my mind up for me....

As the kids say, EPIC FAIL!!!

I got an error to do with one of the adobe programs. (I doubt it was flash). Which then made my chrome suddenly crash and I was unable to turn it back on as it quickly popped up and crashed. I've tried to reinstall chrome but the uninstaller kept on crashing. Somehow I managed to click the uninstall button before it crashed and uninstalled my chrome. I've tried running the install again but it kept crashing again. ( starting it in administrator mode took longer for it to crash but still the same effect ) This is when I tried to get other browsers like opera but still the same thing happens the install crashes almoast instantaniously and Firefox seems to be the only one working.

I know this is in the wrong forums but I couldint get much help from the others..

Any ideas how to fix this?

I guess since I can't disable the security warnings in Firefox 30, I mean Chromefox, yes that's exactly what it is now, I am going to can Firefox until they decide to get with the program! This message pops up with just about everything so no point in asking stupid questions back like what sites, or coming up with some dumb fix that must be enabled on every site in the world! Mozilla really dropped the ball lately and should be ashamed of them selves! Firefox used to be my favorite browser because they were different! Now I see no point in having it at all! May as well just use Google Chrome! I mean after all why use a cheap substitute when you can have the real thing? Mozilla has become a joke now! Lets see what type of dumb answers come up with this post! Bet they will be " You don't want to do that" " What sites are you having problems with" This is a clean computer with clean OS and fresh install of Chromefox! You know what they say, if it looks like a duck, sound like a duck and acts like a duck, then it must be a duck! :{
