I've been using Firefox basically ever since it came out after Netscape died. It was a simple and flexible browser that promoted itself on the basis of respecting users and working hard to meet their expectations.
Now, as if it weren't enough, Firefox is keeping my browsing history when I'm in a private window! Not only the URLs get saved on the address bar but the sites are also prominently displayed in the Highlights whenever a new window is opened! Congratulations on potentially ruining a bunch of marriages and causing all sorts of other problems to people who naively trusted Firefox to keep their private browsing... private!
Goodbye, Firefox, I'm leaving to Opera until you guys get your shit together (hint: It starts by listening to users) if you ever do. I advise everyone to do the same both to get rid of this train wreck of a browser and to protect your privacy. Unfortunately, the likely reaction from the developers will be that they are stubbornly right because they know what is best for us, even if everyone tells them otherwise. Enjoy the view from your ivory tower before it crumbles to the ground, suckers!
PS.: The image upload thingy won't stop spinning and there's no indication the file was received despite my traffic monitor indicating the upload is done, once again showing how Mozilla systems are going downhill fast. So I changed the screenshot I was going to send to illustrate the privacy snafu to one that more closely reflects my feelings. I do hope it gets there and is seem by all developers.
