DUMP FIREFOX... or at Least Hit 'em Where it Hurts!


If disposing of a CEO for donating to an unfashionable political cause didn't repulse you enough to keep from using the (overrated imho) Firefox web browser, perhaps their online POLITICAL censorship will...
or maybe you don't mind being told what you can read, either.


Mozilla Firefox users this week were finding articles pertaining to imploding 'progressive' WH causes/initiatives ('gender equality', 'war on women') 
blocked and substituted by leftist propaganda.
..


Nanny Firefox posted a political opinion on my screen before allowing me to proceed to read the article. This message didn’t appear when I accessed a second article which met with Firefox’s political commissar’s approval. 

Here’s what Firefox said:

Careful Now! (shouldn’t they have said “Achtung! or “Verboten!” or something similar?).

This website could not be displayed by Firefox because it is 
not consistent with Mozilla’s corporate values. 
May we suggest visiting another site instead?

Here is the digital photo I took of Firefox’s insertion of their political views into my morning browsing:



Notice that there is the implication in the “This website” sentence that one cannot access this Red State article under Firefox before, indeed, allowing one to go to that Red State piece by following the instructions in the last sentence.

This is a totalitarian move on the part of Mozilla Firefox but with a smiling facing – and a plausible deniability of censorship, nudging people to not access the site and also discouraging those readers who didn’t fully understand the written message from even attempting to click on the page...



I myself haven't used Firefox in years, and Safari is more than fine with me. But if you really must keep this browser, behold... it's easy to stay with Firefox yet still cost most of the (Google referral) revenue the product earns for Mozilla...

To really send the message to Google as well, make some other search provider, such as https://duckduckgo.com/ your Firefox search provider by building a bookmark and using it. As good as Google is, they are the main source of Mozilla income, and so you want to cease using them while using Firefox until the message has been sent.
For those of you who love Google as I do for the quality of its search results, I suggest that you install an alternate browser just for Google searches, so no possible revenue stream reaches Mr. Eich’s tormentors that way. 
I'm using Midori — which is based on the Webkit engine rather than Mozilla’s Gecko engine. This lets me search Google without sending a dime to Mozilla. In addition, having a separate browser aids you in avoiding Google-itis, in which your gmail account becomes a nexus for knowing your habits...
It's about time patriots cut off doing business with major threats to our freedom like the PC Nazis at Mozilla-- the Techie Left is a great place to start in general, even California hippies are sick of them.

And its not just the left we should boycott:
Chamber of Commerce/Rove donors, you're next...
