FAQ on CEO Resignation (Mozilla Blog)
The Mozilla Blog ^ | 4/5/2014 | Unknown

Posted on 04/07/2014 7:47:12 AM PDT by UB355

Over the past few days, we have received a lot of questions and seen a great number of media stories about the events surrounding Brendan Eich’s resignation from the role of CEO. Many of the media stories have incorrect facts, so we compiled the following FAQ as a resource for everyone to have access to the core facts.

Here is the announcement on Brendan Eich stepping down as Mozilla CEO.

Q: Did Board members resign over Brendan’s Prop 8 donation?

A: No. Gary Kovacs and Ellen Siminoff had previously stated they had plans to leave as soon as Mozilla chose the next CEO. John Lilly did not resign over Proposition 8 or any concerns about Brendan’s personal beliefs.

As empty as the Hollywood Reds' threats to leave the US if Bush won re-election.

Firefox has been faltering and now Mozilla has shot themselves in the foot.

I hope Eich starts his own company and kicks ass.

And in Braking News, Vince Foster wasn’t killed, he willingly removed himself from the organization so as not to taint the Clinton Administration (which needed to go back to work for the American people, no scandal ever fed a starving child or a homeless mother...).

This is my first FR post via Pale Moon and firefox has been removed from my network. I also sent mozzila a short note expressing why I removed firefox {but I doubt that they care}.

It's not dramatic but if enough users dump firefox, and stay away from google products and associations, maybe they will get the message.

As I said over the weekend ...

This whole thing is going to end up doing irreparable damage to Mozilla's brand. They botched it from the get-go.

And we should believe anything that HoMozilla says exactly why?

Even their own FAQ is self-contradictory. They didn't fire him, but really they did because they offered to allow him to stay, but only in a much lower profile role.

The majority of employees wanted him to stay on as CEO, but they weren't the people voting on whether he remained as CEO.

The idiot who started the whole mess didn't want him to leave, he just wanted an apology, i.e. he wanted Eich to change his opinion on an important issue. So the idiot who claims to be about doing the right thing is more upset by someone losing a job than changing his strongly held beliefs.

Sheesh.

Remember, up until today it was "sorry you are right, we let everyone down by hiring him" (paraphrasing of course, you all saw the releases).

I have yet to see a company do this sort of social politicizing, be in in this manner or through advertising, and come out the other side undamaged. I mean, every single time it's "well we didn't really mean it" a week or 2 later. For God's sakes, the homos claim to be all powerful, but couldn't even force a red mark for one single day on Chik-Filet sales.

These companies... meaning media outlets, etc control the public voice in the online realms. They prevent the free exchange of opinions by heavy-handed means. Word bans and moderators prevent a lot of free exchange and eventually people don't even try anymore. This leads these stupid companies like Mozilla or Honey Maid be erroneously believe they are catering to the masses when they do this stupid stuff, and every damned time the result is the same... I can't understand why they never learn to stay the hell out of politics

This society has replace the right to live for the unborn with the state sanctioned privilege to murder it. Gay marriage is the same, it is not a right but a license. But calling it a right makes sexsual preference a license to rape and plunder.

Mozilla just joined the ranks of totalitarians.

And Facebook is banning those who dare speak out against it ON THEIR OWN WALL WITHOUT PROFANITY OR THE USE OF INSULTING TERMS.

A chill wind blows.

I’ll bet that Employers across the World are watching this Brendan Eich issue with great interest.

Would any Employer, in their right mind, hire a potentially radical LBGTQ person that could disrupt their business?

I’ve made several comments at their input page here:

https://input.mozilla.org/en-US/

Since my first visit there Friday evening, there have been about 16,000 comments regarding the forced ouster of Brendan Eich, with the sentiment expressed at about 90% voicing disapproval.

After reading their “faq-on-ceo-resignation”, it’s my opinion that they’ve hired an arsonist to try and put out the fire they started.

“I just read your feeble attempt to shirk your responsibility from the Brendan Eich debacle. It’s not going to work. Kicking the hornets nest, then saying you’re sorry doesn’t keep you from getting stung. Can the damage you’ve inflicted on Mozilla even be calculated? Soon, I hope.”

I sincerely hope that the pressure will remain so intense on them that everyone involved in this outrage will be forced out.

This is my first half-hour with Pale Moon. I see no discernable difference from Firefox. I had to import my profile with the import tool, and the addons were disabled by default and I had to manualy enable them. Other than that it's awesome!

I am aware of at least one website that is blocking the use of the firefox browser in protest.

If their programers are so radical, how can anyone trust the code?

I switched to Pale Moon, based on a Freeper recommendation in another post. It is Firefox based, but as I understand it, Firefox in open source software. Mozilla put it’s own menus and other “enhancements” around it and marketed it as Mozilla Firefox. Pale Moon does the same and claims no connection to Mozilla, etc.

My install was done in about 5 minutes, including download. Using their migration tool all my bookmarks and add-ons came over smoothly and completely.

I had my account suspended for posting on the honey maid facebook page. All I did was tell them I would be choosing generic brands instead of theirs since they decided to use their platform for politics. I was suspended for 12 hours i believe, my account started working the next day again. I’m not a big facebook user, but I do use it for stuff like that, but in any case, I can survive without it if they delete my account permanently... im not 13 so I really don’t care. The most damning part of it was the barrage of people calling me vulgar names and threatening to do damage to me in various ways... yet I was the one who had their account suspended. This is what I mean, the militant left control the outlets so only one voice is heard.I’ll also add that they did in fact delete my post on top of it all... making sure it would never be seen. This leads these stupid companies the believe they are somehow leading the way for society in some way. It is only when then are inundated afterwords that they realize their foolish mistake and understand just who they have crawled into bed with.

FFiend, within Firefox I have come to depend on typing in just 2 or 3 letters of my favorite URLs. For example hot brings up hotmail, fr immediately brings up freerepublic, da drops down some “dashboards” that I use, etc. Will I lose those with a changeover to Pale Moon?

I don’t know, I just started using PM yesterday. It only takes a few minutes to download and install, and you can run it side by side with MF. Give it a whirl! I can’t tell the difference between PM and MF.

Pale Moon is Firefox based, if what I read is correct.

Just sayin’..
