Fearing Drama, Mozilla Opens Public Consultation Before Worldwide Firefox DoH Rollout.

There should be drama, because DoH is absurd and user hostile — just like all of the other initiatives Mozilla her perpetrated in the past decade or so.

But I wanted to highlight this false dichotomy, of XUL vs. security. I agree that XUL needed some work, or perhaps needed to be replaced. But it’s a false choice to claim that all customization possibilities must be eliminated because XUL was showing its age.

One does not equal the other.

The truth is that Mozilla wanted to punish its users and take away control. This was the real motivation and had nothing to do with security. It’s possible to write something customizable and secure; truth is, they just did not want to.

And it cost them everything.

Fuck Mozilla and fuck the Firefox developers.
