#Mozilla, please don't do this. We don't want this. It might not be an "ad" but it makes you look bad nonetheless. Especially now given that #Firefox is the only non-Chromium browser out there, you need not alienate your user base.

Here's hoping this gets boosted enough. ๐Ÿ˜ž

Firefox is now more important, isolated and vulnerable. Some suggested ways we can support it:
โ€ข Set it as your default browser. And if you're back home with family over Christmas, suggest/set as their default too.
โ€ข When you hear web devs say "can't everyone just use Chrome", please challenge it.
โ€ข Contribute to Mozilla-led projects, e.g. MDN Docs: smashingmagazine.com/2018/05/c
โ€ข Donate to Mozilla if you can: donate.mozilla.org

If you really want to help Firefox succeed, file a bug on webcompat.com/ when you find a broken website. Don't just switch back to Chrome; let Mozilla know there's a problem so they can try to fix it.

When browsers lose market share, they fall into the "compatibility death spiral." Sites don't bother to test, they break, and users flee to the browser that "just works." Mozilla is fighting this battle every day, and it just got harder.

It is really quite damning.

* Facebook deliberately obscured from users what information they were collecting about them & how to opt out

* Facebook used its monopoly to cripple competing applications and services

* Facebook signed agreements to acquire data other app developers collected in exchange for some of its own

* Companies could circumvent user permissions by signing an agreement with Facebook
