What mr landuke aays may be correct vor not – i can not proof it and he should have given links and sources – anything else is unscientific.

Can you trust a Programm that you die not write?

Thr solution is: learn to program OpenSource – and Firefox seems to be open source – you might habe heared of sware iron (chrome minus bullshit) – Tor Browser (Firefox minus bullshit) so „all“ we need is Firefox minus bullshit.

https://developer.mozilla.org/en-US/docs/Mozilla/Developer_guide/Source_Code

so the world is evil no matter what browser you use?… you could use lynx but it looks pretty black and white.

The Head of Mozilla is a Lawyer (no need to say more). Mozilla is said to violate their own principles while asking for donations… would be great if he would also give links to proof things.

i just wonder what Mr Landuke recommends as alternatives? Nothing! He namens a roadmap „what to do to regain trust“ No recommendations for alternative browsers… This is not constructive enough my friend 😉

He blames the CEOs. Can you trust Chris Beard

Chris is NOT a lawyer – according to bis Bio at mozilla – „Chris studied economics and biochemistry at the University of Ottawa and received his MBA in International Business from the University of Edinburgh, where he was also awarded the John McFarlane Prize for Leadership. He is a member of the national board of directors of Make-A-Wish. Born in Canada, Chris now calls the San Francisco Bay Area home with his wife and their two children. “

If you make claims – always always give links and sources – anything else is a claim without proof.

Cliqz GmbH (Company registered in Germany!) conflict of interest and Mozilla’s investment

As mentioned before, Mozilla made a strategic investment in Cliqz and has been working very closely with them since. However, they are not majority owners, which means Cliqz does not have to abide by Mozilla’s principles.

They are majority-owned by Hubert Burda Media, a large media group that has a revenue of over €2 billion per year.

Hubert Burda Media own Chip.de, which, which is a computer magazine and website that serves downloads – notable because it has, according to some users, a reputation similar to Cnet or downloads.com, in that it serves malware. I haven’t been able to confirm this, anyone German speaking who is aware of this: Please contribute!

/u/MartinsRedditAccount has posted a discussion about this.

Also notably, Hubert Burda Media own Focus, a news magazine, and the reason that Firefox Focus is called Firefox Klar in German.

Cliqz purchased Ghostery in February this year. Ghostery is notable for a number of things over the years. It was publically suggested by Edward Snowden in 2014, but since then there has been negative media about the opt-in feature Ghost Rank, which records page hits, and statistics about ads and blocking, and sells this to advertiser industry groups, including the Better Business Bureau. Cliqz has owned Ghostery only since February of this year, so they were not the deciding factor behind Ghostery’s decisions, but it does not seem that it has changed course based on my cursory research.

„The NSA played a significant role in the origins of Extended Random. The authors of the 2008 paper on the protocol were Margaret Salter, technical director of the NSA’s defensive Information Assurance Directorate, and an outside expert named Eric Rescorla.

Rescorla, who has advocated greater encryption of all Web traffic, works for Mozilla, maker of the Firefox web browser. He and Mozilla declined to comment. Salter did not respond to requests for comment.“

What can we do?

Basically are all Mozilla products #OpenSource, so there are brave hackers that use the code, throw out the nsa-google and provide it to the public.

1. Alternative to Firefox: Tor Bundled Version of Firefox: https://www.torproject.org/projects/torbrowser.html.en

2. Alternatives to Thunderbird?

„The best piece of security advice I ever received was from Allan Schiffman, co-designer of the shttp protocol: „People don’t want security; they want the appearance of security.“

Users know that they’re supposed to have some security but evaluating the security of products is incredibly difficult even for experts. What’s much easier — especially if what you’re concerned about is not getting fired — is to do something that’s plausibly secure. Whether it works or not is much less important than that your choice was defensible. If you’re trying to deliver a security solution and you can’t figure out how to get people to think they need your solution, it’s useless no matter how good it is.“
