Ditch Firefox and go to any other browser.

Posted on 04/05/2014 7:08:16 PM PDT by RoosterRedux

As long as Firefox/Mozilla is willing to can their conservative CEO...shouldn't we cast our vote by canning Firefox/Mozilla.

You could try Comodo Dragon Chromium-based or Comodo IceDragon
Based on Mozilla technology

Pale Moon. Almost identical to Firefox.
http://www.palemoon.org/download-ng.shtml
I had it installed, running with all of my bookmarks in less than five minutes. Not a single hiccup.

Also:

From the Pale Moon Facebook page:
“Since several people have been asking about this: Pale Moon is in no way associated or affiliated with the Mozilla Corporation.”

I uninstalled Firefox yesterday. I wasn’t using it anyhow, inasmuch as all the pages I want to visit can be accessed from Chrome or Opera.

I first got onto the internet with a Beta version of Mosaic, version 0.9 or so. Later it became Netscape. But I’ve been using Internet Explorer most of the time since then. I never tried Firefox, and now I never will.

All the apps for FF I installed unto Opera but the self destructing cookies extension I really like as it kills 3rd party cookies by the second.

But the rest of FF extensions such as DONOT TRACK ME and ADBLOCK PLUS is available on Opera...

Hated to do it but installed Chrome until I had the time to understand Opera and some others better. However - I wonder - because Mozilla is a non profit but also know they get alot of revenue from Google - what impact will this really have? Where else is their revenue derived from besides donations?

Accomplished that yesterday. Chrome imports all the firefox settings.

Additionally I went to help->contact mozilla and lectured them about the pitfalls getting into politics.

All good options in lieu of using the browser from the authoritarian goons at Mozilla.

I already did. I am not anti gay at all but I am against anyone who would deprive another of freedom of speech or political freedom. The donation this man made was both a form of expression and his political choice.

Not one action of mine will go in support of these narrow minded anti-American bigots.

I wonder if they can tell when someone deletes the browser. I had it, but only used it for some websites that were IE friendly and didn’t support Safari.

I haven’t had a need for it in years so I deleted it the other day. F’ em.

There were (are) a lot of pro-gay comments on that Mozilla commentary section that read something like this:
“Attitudes and actions like Mozilla’s are shining the light on the gay community, and showing us that we are about to become the intolerant things we hate. Shame on Mozilla, bye-bye Firefox.”

Ghostery is also available for chrome.

I was using Firefox for very specific extensions that I use, but I've removed Firefox and I'll look for those extensions/add-on's for Chrome or IE.

I'm not going to support a company that bends over to the gay mafia.

Not to hijack the thread but I have XP on my desk and laptop. Got any suggestion as to what I can switch to that is similar to XP and which is good to use with another browser such as are being suggested in this thread? Thanks to any and all for suggestions.

One good thing about FireFox is their uninstall program. It worked fine.

Try Pale Moon’s browser. If their current version won’t work with your XP operating system, there’s links to older versions on their site.

The likelihood of any of these tech companies NOT being far left Obamaphiles is slim to none. Since the browser is not for profit and makes no money, it won’t hurt them at all if a few thousand people stop using it.

I really like their browser. I’m used to their developer tools and like the way Firefox displays XML if that is what I need to look at.

I wonder though about an institution which caves so easily to a small number of people. What else have they kept from me because of their weird phobias?

I like it and will use it. I tried Opera and a couple of others and I didn’t like them.

Pale Moon is almost a Firefox clone.

Everything (bookmarks, themes, and extensions) was imported using the import tool download and are all working.

Thank You!

I’m now running Pale Moon and it was so easy! Thank you for the link!

I also used the migration tool and kept all of my FireFox bookmarks. (I really thought that was going to be a PITA) You guys can find it in this forum thread.

Check this out:

http://forum.palemoon.org/viewtopic.php?f=24&t=4163

“Pale Moon (and Moonchild Productions) is in no way associated or affiliated with the Mozilla Corporation or Mozilla Foundation. Pale Moon nor the developer have any ties with Mozilla, financially or otherwise. Mozilla does not benefit from people using Pale Moon.”

“On a more personal note: I do not agree with Mozilla’s management decisions, recent design decisions or the rather upsetting CEO resignation and controversy around it. Even though I personally don’t agree with the ex-CEO’s views, and understand the resistance against it and dissociation people might feel to a company with someone in a leading position actively opposing gay rights, Mozilla’s response of making him immediately resign was a display of severe lack of tolerance for different views.
I believe in freedom, respect, tolerance and choice. I will always attempt to make Pale Moon and the driving forces behind it reflect that, and will not judge anyone on their personal beliefs, so long as they respect my own.”

This statement here is in place to let people know that if they wish to abandon Mozilla products as a result of either disagreement mentioned, they can feel confident in using Pale Moon as an alternative.”
