    Looks like someone stirred up the liberal-marixist CIA botnet to post here.

      The article starts from an incorrect premise: the entire MDN team was not fired though most of its members were.

        Why not GitLab? If we should use GitHub, we also could simply use Edge. Same case. Practice what you preach.

          I'm old enough to remember when they were blowing money on designing their own failed smartphone OS. Has Mozilla ever been good at managing their money? Probably the entire thing should be a community project. I agree with the calls for forking Firefox into a broad community project, take it away from the poor management at Mozilla.

            https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mitchell_Baker

            in 2018 she earns 2,4 Millionen US-Dollar per year it is simple how this parasite operate she gets more money every year and she "keeps firing employees that help improve the community"...

            there is a simple solution for this: FORK Firefox the people who really do the work should FORK firefox and by this they remove the parasites like Mitchell Baker.

            sadly there is no other way to remove such parasites. it is same like the BLM leader of Debian...
            it is time to FORK Debian and by this remove the Marxist/socialists...

            evil people will always hunt down projects like Debian and Firefox and just steal "2,4 Millionen US-Dollar per year" from it.

            and the only solution to this is: FORK the project and make sure these people have no contact to the new project.

            (EDIT)"By 2020 her salary had risen to over $3 million, while in the same year the Mozilla Corporation had to lay off approximately 250 employees due to shrinking revenues. Baker blamed this on the Coronavirus pandemic.[15]"

            in 2020 it is even 3 million euro per year.

            what a greedy parasite.

            (edit2) "In 2018 she received a total of $2,458,350 in compensation from Mozilla, which represents a 400% payrise since 2008.[13] On the same period, Firefox marketshare was down 85%. When asked about her salary she stated "I learned that my pay was about an 80% discount to market. Meaning that competitive roles elsewhere were paying about 5 times as much. That's too big a discount to ask people and their families to commit to."[14]"

            marketshare was down by 85%= """400% payrise"""
            I do not understand, do you support the parasites, or the Marxist/socialists? The later fight for a world without parasites, you cant hate both or support both...

            PS. Yes I know, I should not be writing this in a tech forum, but I did not start this discussion.

              Are you old enough to remember the (pardon the language) IE5 and IE6 days? Mozilla had no problem setting and hitting their goals back then.

              But it could be an industry-wide problem, not Mozilla's fault. These days everything seems to revolve around closed platforms and getting users to send their data where it can be mined. And Mozilla's philosophy flies in the face of all that. It's no wonder money has been dwindling. Too bad none of their alternate plans panned out.

                The idea that germany, sweden, or really any country that has a free market is socialist is absurd.

                But not nearly as absurd as equation FLOSS to socialism. imagine if an open source project was subject to control by the masses. they aren't, forking them IS NOT the same thing.

                I can just imagine it now, the kernel's choices being made by popular demand instead of people who actually know what they are doing.

                ​​​​​​Sociallism requires something to be regulated by the community. which means popular vote. Not only do you suppress minorities. but you supress free development.

                Marxism is just a subset of socialism where the community is restricted to the government. if you can start your own business, hire qualified people of your descretion, spoiler alert you have capitalism, not socialism.

                EDIT: No free market should be completely uninhibited, restrictions against things like monopolies are a good thing. but its still fundementally capitalism.

                Do not mistake social programs, with socialism. they sound the same but they are not the same

                    you are confusing socialism with democracy. socialism forbids private means of production. i.e. under socialism you can write program only on socially owned computer

                      But socialism is social ownership of the means of production. Not anarchy.

                      From wikipedia:
                      In a knowledge economy, computers and networks are means of production. In a broad sense, the "means of production" also includes the "means of distribution" such as stores, the internet and railroads (Infrastructural capital).
                      Taking control of such means automatically requires being able to modify the source code to your liking.


                      Unless I'm misunderstanding the situation, in which case please correct me. I'd rather bend my pride and learn instead of being a proud idiot.
