Unless I'm misunderstanding this, Mozilla states "With the latest version of Firefox for U.S. desktop users" and subsequently links to "en-US" download to seemingly make an equivalency. [1]

I wonder if the smart people in management there actually understand that the "en-US" download is the default for many non-US countries and they're setting themselves up legally. It's also bizarrely disingenuous to equate the locale setting to mean US users.

Standardmäßig ist Firefox leider nicht besonders datenschutzfreundlich. Wer nicht die Einstellungen durchsuchen möchte und sich nicht bei jeder neuen Version Sorgen über neue Funktionen von Mozilla machen will, kann auf Alternativen zurückgreifen. Zum Beispiel für den Desktop und für Android. Beide Varianten entfernen unter anderem die Telemetrie-Funktionen.

I see some people are really disappointed about Debian packaging a stripped-down version of KeePassXC. But hey, I actually wish there was also a minimal @thunderbird package without integrations of IRC or Matrix etc, just with core email functionality.

Giving the Waterfox browser a try. I like Firefox but it seems to be starting to get a little bloaty, and I want to continue using a browser that’s not Chromium based. Waterfox is basically an even more privacy-oriented fork of Mozilla’s Gecko, but not to the point of breaking the web like some highly privacy-oriented browsers might.

After importing all my bookmarks and settings, installing my usual extensions, and even recreating my custom theme in Firefox Color, Waterfox is visually identical to my Firefox experience, just minus the analytical tracking in the background. And I have full access to Firefox extensions and themes. Using Waterfox from here on out seems like an easy decision. It even has some features that Firefox doesn’t.

    The current version of is 125.0.2 is still stuck at version 124.0.1 & from is at 124.2.
    Not sure, why both of them are not getting any further updates? Have they already given up? Time to switch back to vanilla ?

    125.0.2 is out now to revert the new feature that proactively blocks downloads from potentially untrustworthy URLs as it caused unexpected problems with downloading files in some situations. It will be re-enabled in a future release once it works as expected! https://www.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/125.0.2/releasenotes/

    @mozilla
    Right now the domain mozilla.org lacks an IPv6 address. This omission goes directly against Mozilla's stated mission.

    If you uphold the artificial scarcity created by the depletion of IPv4 and thus promote the artificial need to pay for an IPv4, then you stand clearly against making the internet «a public resource that is open and accessible to all».

    @thunderbird I really appreciate Thunderbird's team, and these updates are going to finally put it into the running with other modern offerings. I migrated to using it as my daily driver for email management a few years ago, and I'm glad I did, but I'm also so excited to be looking at desktop improvements and an android app.

    The shutdown is also exactly why communities should be investing in tooling. Had they gone with a fully distributed model there would be no central service to close and the communities using it could have kept doing so regardless of Mozillas involvement. Instead they went "cloud native" and initially relied on a specific cloud platform which basically locks everyone into a final shutdown regardless of who "owns" the cloud.
