  1. Mozilla winds down DeepSpeech development, announces grant program In 2017, Mozilla launched DeepSpeech, an initiative incubated within the machine learning team at Mozilla Research focused on open sourcing an automatic speech recognition model.

  2. Mozilla decides to hide Compact Mode in Firefox for new users but keep it for existing ones If you follow Firefox web browser news you may have read some time ago that Mozilla planned to remove the browser's compact mode from the customization options. Compact Mode is one of Firefox's three density modes for its main interface; it is the smallest layout option and leaves most room for webpages displayed in the browser. The other two modes, normal, which is the default, and touch, which is for touch-capable devices, display a bigger interface. Mozilla's original plan was
  3.

As of this writing, more than 100,000 GitHub repositories depend on Bleach. The vulnerability, discovered by resea
  4. Mozilla ends Promoted Firefox Add-ons Program Mozilla Add-ons Product Manager Jorge Villalobos announced the end of Mozilla's Promoted Add-ons pilot for the Firefox web browser on January 21, 2021.

After reviewing the pilot results, we have decided not to move forward with this iteration of the program. Mozilla introduced the program in September 2020 as a pilot program called Promoted Add-ons. The main idea was to provide developers with
  5. Mozilla's revenue jumped to 828 million U.S. Dollar in 2019 Mozilla Foundation and Subsidiaries published the annual Independent Auditor's Report and Consolidated Financial Statements today. The report reveals that Mozilla earned a total of 828 million U.S. Dollar in 2019, nearly double the revenue of 2018. Mozilla's revenue dropped in 2018 to 450 million U.S. Dollar from 562 million in 2017. The organization changed the search deal model that it used throughout the years to a flexible "per-region" one. It dropped Yahoo as the search provider and signed deals with Goo
  6. Mozilla wants to enable DNS-over-HTTPS (DoH) in Firefox for all users worldwide, but wants to hear from ISPs, governments, and companies beforehand. Mozilla has opened today a public comment and consultation period about the ways it could enable support for the controversial privacy-centric DNS-over-HTTPS (DoH) protocol inside Firefox. The browser maker's decision to open a rare public consultation period comes after the organization faced criticism last year in the UK for its plans to support DoH inside Firefox. UK government officials, law enf
  7. The weather outside is turning frightful, and that means it’s time for the Mozilla Foundation to scare the crap out of you with its annual “Privacy Not Included” buyer’s guide. Each year, the Mozilla Foundation judges a handful of gadgets based on their privacy chops, giving shoppers an easy way to judge whether a gift will divulge mountains of personal information about the user. The companies’ privacy policies and past scandals weigh heavily on the list, which is why you’ll see Facebook and Amazon getting dinged in this year’s roundup. Mozilla isn’t able to analyze every product out there, b
  8. Mozilla sees 'collateral damage' in DOJ antitrust fight with Google In a carefully worded statement after the Justice Department announced antitrust action against Google, the Firefox browser maker implied it might suffer financially in the fight. Magdalena Petrova/IDG Mozilla, maker of Firefox, this week issued a carefully-worded statement that implied it might be harmed by "collateral damage" if the U.S. Department of Justice (DOJ) wins its recently-revealed antitrust lawsuit against search giant Google. "
  9. In case you've forgotten: Google sends Mozilla about $400m a year Mozilla has responded to news of the US government’s antitrust lawsuit against Google by saying it welcomes it … provided it doesn’t get hurt. Mozilla has weighed in on two fronts, firstly as an organisation that likes an open web. “Like millions of everyday internet users, we share concerns about how Big Tech’s growing power can deter innovation and reduce consumer choice,” wrote chief legal officer Amy Keating, before getting to the hear of the matter: Mozilla has a deal to funn
  10. Mozilla Add-ons developers may soon pay Mozilla for reviews and promoted listings Mozilla announced the introduction of the "Promoted Add-ons Pilot" program on September 9, 2020 on the official Add-ons blog. The pilot program will run between September and November 2020, and may be turned into a full service for developers of Firefox add-ons afterwards. The main idea behind the new service is to provide add-on developers and companies with options to have their add-ons manually reviewed by Mozilla and as a consequence, promoted on the Mozilla website.
  11. Mozilla: there is a high probability that your browsing history can be used to identify you There is a very high probability that individual Internet users can be identified by analyzing the browsing history alone, according to a new study by Mozilla. Mozilla published the results of a recent study in the research paper "Replication: Why We Still Can't Browse in Peace: On the Uniqueness and Reidentifiability of Web Browsing Histories" [PDF link] which it presented at the USENIX security conference earlier this month. Last year, Mozilla asked Firefox u
  12. The future of Mozilla's Speech to Text project DeepSpeech is uncertain Following the layoffs at Mozilla and rumor that the organization would be able to extend its search deal with Google for another three years, it became clear quickly that things needed time to settle down. Employees who were fired would provide insight on how the letting go of employees would affect certain projects at Mozilla. A week later, Reuben Morais published an article on the official Discourse site of Mozilla about the future of DeepSpeech. DeepSpeech, or

    Hi everybody! I'm facing issues with Internet Download Manager and Firefox 77.0/77.0.1. IDM integration module stopped working since I've updated to latest Mozilla version. IDM support told me to uninstall and reinstall the plugin but it didn't work. What should I do?
  18. Firefox Private Relay is Mozilla's latest experimental service Firefox Private Relay is a new experimental service by Firefox maker Mozilla; the (currently) invite-only service is designed to reduce unwanted emails and spam by acting as a proxy email service of sorts. The idea is not new but Mozilla may be on to something considering that trust is important for this kind of service. Users sign-in with their Firefox account, or create a new one, to start using the service. A companion add-on for Firefox is available as well which integrates the service in Firefox.
  19. Mozilla has a new virtual private network service and if you have a Chromebook, a Windows 10 computer or an Android device in the US, you can start using a beta version now.

  21. Following the tradition, developers of Mozilla Firefox and Google Chrome have recently sent cakes to Microsoft after the launch of Chromium-based Edge browser for both Windows and Mac. Sending anniversary cake is a long known tradition-- 14 years to be precise. The cake sent by Google had a message: “Welcome to Chromium!”, while Mozilla's cake read, “bing it on, Microsoft!” Microsoft's Internet Explorer team started the cake-giving tradition back in 2006 when the developer team had sent a cake to Mozilla after the launch of Firefox 2 in 2006. The Internet Exp
  22. Has Mozilla created a two-tier add-ons system? "This extension isn't monitored by Mozilla. Make sure you trust the extension before you install it." is displayed on the Firefox Browser add-ons website when users open all but some of the add-on pages on the official repository. About 100 extensions are listed on the official add-ons repository without the notification, and all of these are so-called recommended extensions. Mozilla unveiled the Recommended Extensions program for Firefox in April 2019 officially as a way to highlight a
  23. Mozilla announces that it will comply with Californian privacy rules worldwide Mozilla has announced that it plans to abide by the new California Consumer Privacy Act (CCPA) on a worldwide scale in the new year, not just for those based in the western U.S. state.

The CCPA comes into effect on January 1, 2020. With the CCPA in place, the Attorney General of Califonia is allowed to enforce privacy
  24. Mozilla revenue dropped in 2018 but it is still doing well Mozilla published the organization's Annual Report for the year 2018 on November 25, 2019. The report, an audited financial statement, provides information on income and expenses in the year 2018. One of the main questions that Firefox users may have had after 2017 was how well Mozilla was doing after it canceled the search deal with Yahoo (which was acquired by Verizon and the main search provider since 2014 when Mozilla picked Yahoo over Google). Mozilla switched from a model in which it sel
  25. Mozilla has been heavily invested in WebAssembly with Firefox, and today, the organization teamed up with a few others to form the new Bytecode Alliance, which aims to create "new software foundations, building on standards such as WebAssembly and WebAssembly System Interface (WASI)".
