I don't like to be bullshited, and I feel bullshited by Mozilla right now. A couple of days ago they said they would drop Thunderbird: "Many inside of Mozilla, ..., feel the need to be laser-focused on activities like Firefox that can have an industry-wide impact," http://arstechnica.com/information-technology/2015/12/thunderbird-a-tax-on-firefox-development-and-mozilla-wants-to-drop-it/

And today they present a new Project, a content blocker for iOS: https://blog.mozilla.org/futurereleases/2015/12/08/announcing-focus-by-firefox-a-content-blocker-for-ios/ who gives a fuck? Aren't there enough adblockers for iOS already?

That is not how "laser-focused on Firefox" looks like, Mozilla.

I believe Mozilla is fighting for its life. They seem to fail very often and browser market share is shrinking as well. Probably they try to get a bigger user base and some funds. This is not backed by facts, just a gut feeling.


I don't know what you mean, they [focus](http://techcrunch.com/2015/12/08/mozilla-will-stop-developing-and-selling-firefox-os-smartphones/), just not on the priorities you might like – or that might make sense. :)


Oh, they did? Wow, I didn’t get that, I thought that they would just not sell any phones anymore or something. That is really sad, I hope they will be able to at least hold the desktop browser :-/
