    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.

    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.

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

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

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

    80% discount was too much to commit to for people and their families... so some people have to have experience a 100% discount (layoffs)?

    Let's not forget that open source is the embodiment of socialism. Arguing against that means you want us to only use closed source software? No thank you.

    Also how is being against racism and police brutality linked in any way to the mismanagement of a corporation?

    @Qaridarium.
    Maybe first read-up what the difference is between Marxist and socialism. Do you (want to) know where the most happy people live....Not the USA, but mostly North- and West-Europe. Including Germany, your place - mostly countries with more or less a system based on socialism. I know, denied by right-wing extremists.

    And, is it not the case that Capitalism is home in the USA? So why bark about someone doing just that?
    I understand your frustration, only your words have a wrong ring to it.
