Firefox recommends reading articles while driving.
I received an email from Mozilla and the very first sentence reads "Ever come across an article that would pair nicely with your morning commute? Wish you could get it on your phone without the fuss of sending yourself an email?"
I am appalled that Mozilla is recommending people be on their phones while driving. I like Mozilla, but if this is the culture they promote, I may have to be done with them.
I wanted to post this on Mozilla's page before I put it on facebook or any other social media. I want to make sure I'm not over re-acting.
I agree with the poster and understand how they could read it like that.Read this answer in context 👍 0

In my opinion this wording applies to the public transport :).

What a stretch of your imagination! Accusing Mozilla of promoting use of a handheld device while operating a motor vehicle.
I have seen many reasons for users deciding to quit using Firefox over perceived "faults" with Firefox or with Mozilla, but yours takes the cake as far as being the most asinine reason so far in 2018.
Thank you for that feedback, it serves to promote my premise that Mozilla should be more careful who they let use Firefox. It can be dangerous in the wrong hands.
I also read "...with your morning commute?" as something to do while travelling on a train, subway, bus, taxi, uber, or any other case where you are not driving.
I agree with the poster and understand how they could read it like that.
Yes, if they suffer from a rectal - cranial inversion.
You are definitely assuming that everyone commutes while driving a car. There are many other ways to commute to work. Obviously Mozilla doesn't want people to text and drive, but if your morning commute is in a bus, a train, a ferry, plane, or carriage ride, than you are safe to be reading all the articles you want.
Also, you're using a pretty old version of Firefox (58). You should update to 61.0.1 ASAP. Update Firefox to the latest release
