Mozilla now remotely highjacks your browser session to push ads, blocks you from using the browser until you accept or decline (for later, not forever) the offer, and bypasses all privacy measures you might have configured.https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=1835158https://old.reddit.com/r/firefox/comments/13ro31o/mozilla_sends_popup_ad_overlay_in_firefox/https://i.imgur.com/zZ6T5tc.pngIn before the typical responses>b-but just add these 15 undocumented about:config flags>b-but just add these 250 lines of css to your userchrome
Works on my machine (librewolf)
Mozilla has 750 employees. They expect to be paid in actual currency and not fairy dust and the adoration of the open sores community. How do you suggest they fund development of the browser then?
>>93673935>How do you suggest they fund development of the browser then?Using those $500,000,000.00 that Google gives them every year.
>>93673875I literally never saw this ad before you posted it and I am using no fancy shit. Calling bullshit on this one.
>>93673875>Making money is le badWhy is g anti capitalism?
>>93673935I think good pays them enough so that they don't have to bundle ads inside the browser
>>93673935If their browser was actually the best they'd be able to survive on goodwill donations. Also they don't need 750 employees to run a web browser. A dedicated team of 20 developers could make and update Firefox forever.
I'm on the latest stable version and I have never seen this.
>>93673875There’s nothing we can do. Everyone loves Firefox BECAUSE of the ads, not despite it, because it means they’re “not funded by Google”. Some other, related copes:>not on my client>just use ESR>just close the pop up lol>it’s free, what do you expect?>at least they’re not spying on me>at least they’re not a megacorp>at least they’re open sores
Reminder that if Microsoft did this shit with Edge, everyone would cry and bitch and moan about how bad they are.
We need Unzilla'd Firefox. Not just lame forks like Librewolf and Pale Moon, we need to actually stage an open source take over of Mozilla and hand Firefox to the people.
>>93673875Pretty fucking gay. Especially the straight up lie that a black household looks like that. That father would have gone out for cigarettes years ago.Set browser.vpn_promo.enabled or better yet anything that has promo in about:config to false.

wasn't g making a moonman browser? what ever happened to that?
>>93676084Mozilla must fall
If I ever see this, I will switch to Shill Lion
>>93673875>b-but just add these 15 undocumented about:config flagsthis is the flag btw
>>93673875this happened to me, so i believe its real, if it keeps happening I will find another browserhow to disable it?
>>93677250>WaterfoxIs it still pozzed?
>remotely highjacks your browser session
>>93677730Millions must be cut from Winifred Mitchell Baker's paycheck
>>93678173>doesn't say the instant telescreen>despite being broadcast via the instant telescreenHow could you be distracted by those 4 choices from the effects of the true exercise of power without it?
>>93679002Many people say this here on /g/, but no one has ever shown proof that there was, is or could be malicious code in Waterfox. Ik it was brought by System1 but that was years ago and Waterfox still isn't pozzed so idk I've been using it since 2018 without drama and never seen Firefox ads

>>93677829the one above it is funny, can't tell what half the countries are though
>>93673875LibreWolf just worksJust white list the websites you visit a lot to not delete their cookies and you are golden
>>93684173Every time a problem with Firefox is mentioned, someone say use "x fork of Firefox" which purports to remove features they don't like. It's not enough anymore, we the internet community at large need to take over Firefox completely, just like Xfree86 was forked into Xorg and OpenOffice.org into Libreoffice, we need a wholesale replacement of Mozilla's organization, and take back Firefox from the 5 million a year spyware pushing CEOs. It's either radical action now, or be forced onto a Chromium only web as Mozilla makes themselves and their browser unusable.
>>93673875not if you never updated. skill issue.
>>93684792I'll make the Logo
>>93684792Nobody who is competent is going to work for free, retard. It's why Troonix is still unusable after 30 years.
>>93683923It was bought by an ad company, it's pozzed by default
>>93673875strange. I havent seen an advert on the internet for over 10 years
>>93685398We don't need a new logo, just revert back to the kino original one before they massacred it with tranny flatshit. >>93685508Werks on my machine.
>>93685809That's not my FF icon.
>>93685809>>93687097not my icon
I use a lockdown.js file to configure firefox and by now there's more than a page of "about:config" settings to turn off all the ads and nag popups.
>>93674346same. OP must be a Brave shillIt also applies to all the other bullshit they say, side from telemetry, which is easily disabled, some in settings menu and other in about:config
>>93685809You cannot use the same logo and name in a fork. Due to legal reasons. Even if all your fork changes is some config file the user could modify anyway.
