  2. 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. Over the next four years, the DeepSpeech team released newer versions of the model capable of transcribing lectures, phone conversations, television programs, radio shows, and other live streams with “human accuracy.” But in the coming months, Mozilla plans to cease development and maintenance of DeepSpeech as the company trans
  3. 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
  4. Third mutation XSS bug patched in Mozilla Bleach library Bleach, a Python library that enables web developers to clean HTML input and prevent cross-site scripting (XSS) attacks, was itself found to have an XSS vulnerability, according to an advisory posted on GitHub by Mozilla, the library’s developer.

As of this writing, more than 100,000 GitHub repositories depend on Bleach. The vulnerability, discovered by resea
  5. 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. The organization decided not to move forward and make the program a permanent feature of the browser's add-ons ecosystem. 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
  6. 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
  7. 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
  8. 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
  9. 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. "
  10. 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
  11. Thunderbird continues to be one of the most advanced email clients available for download on desktop platforms, and despite Mozilla originally planning to give up on the app, the company now wants to improve it substantially with updates released during the course of 2019. In an announcement published a few days ago, Mozilla says one of the areas where the development team would focus is making the application substantially faster. “This is an area where I think we will see some of the best improvements in Thunderbird for 2019, as we look into methods for testing and measuring slowne
  12. Prevent Facebook from tracking you around the web. The Facebook Container extension for Firefox helps you take control and isolate your web activity from Facebook. What does it do? Facebook Container works by isolating your Facebook identity into a separate container that makes it harder for Facebook to track your visits to other websites with third-party cookies. How does it work? Installing this extension closes your Facebook tabs, deletes your Facebook cookies, and logs you out of Facebook. The next time you navigate to Facebook it will
  13. There are many problems with web advertising in general, including annoying features like autoplay video ads and pop-ups and also problems like “click fraud” which matter to advertisers. This essay will however be focusing on the privacy issues with some of the kinds of ads that Google produces and the history behind them, and why Larry/Sergey didn’t consider them when buying DoubleClick for example. Also discussed is Mozilla and how they are involved (like in the Google/Mozilla search deal), including Brendan Eich who created JavaScript that eventually left Mozilla to found Brave. There is al
  14. But there's a lot of security issues to think about first Combining online and offline could lead to security settings not listed here A CONSORTIUM of developers is looking for a way that will allow users to edit locally saved files in web apps. The grou, led by teams from Google Chrome and Mozilla Firefox, has a few hurdles to overcome before we can even think about this sort of thing as "normal", because exposing offline files to the internet is fraught with danger. At the moment, users need to upload files, edit them and download them aga
  15. Mozilla is bringing support for Google's WebP image format to Firefox 65. The WebP image format was created by Google as a modern format designed for displaying images on the web. "WebP lossless images are 26% smaller in size compared to PNGs. WebP lossy images are 25-34% smaller than comparable JPEG images at equivalent SSIM quality index." states Google. Popular browsers such as Chrome, Opera, and Edge already support the WebP image format and with the release of version 65, Firefox will as well. Unfortunately, even with Firefox 65, WebP
  16. Mozilla gives back to the Tor Project after it embedded multiple Tor Browser features into Firefox. Mozilla will be matching all donations made to the Tor Project until the end of the year, the Tor Project announced today. The announcement came as the Tor Project launched this week its scheduled end-of-year donations campaign through which the organization supplements its next year's budget. This is the second year in a row that Mozilla has agreed to match Tor Project donations. Last year, the Tor Project raised $200,000 from user donations, and
  17. Mozilla will start the test of a commercial VPN offering tomorrow for a subset of users in the United States. The organization has not created its own VPN network but partnered up with the Swiss VPN provider ProtonVPN to use the established network of the provider. The test starts on October 22, 2018 in the United States for a sample of users of Firefox 62. Only some users who use Firefox 62 in the United States will be invited to participate in the test. There is no surefire way to be selected for the test as criteria for selection are quite diverse. Users who connect to an Open (
  18. WASHINGTON (Reuters) - Firefox browser maker Mozilla is blocking the United Arab Emirates’ government from serving as one of its internet security gatekeepers, citing Reuters reports on a UAE cyber espionage program. Mozilla said in a statement on Tuesday it was rejecting the UAE’s bid to become a globally recognized internet security watchdog, empowered to certify the safety of websites for Firefox users. Mozilla said it made the decision because cybersecurity firm DarkMatter would have administered the gatekeeper role and it had been linked by Reuters and
  19. Mozilla starts test of subscription-based ad-free Internet experience Mozilla launched a new subscription-based service today in partnership with Scroll.com that gives subscribers an ad-free reading experience on participating news sites. Some might say that they get an ad-free experience already thanks to the content blocker that they are using, and that may very well be the case for sites that don't use paywalls or other means of blocking Internet users with ad-blockers from accessing the sites. The idea behind the new service is simple: make sure t
  20. Firefox users worldwide experienced something in the past couple of days that should never have happened; users with installed add-ons noticed that all of their installed browser extensions were disabled suddenly in the browser. Firefox notified users that add-ons could not be verified and were disabled as a consequence. Mozilla introduced a security concepts called add-on signing in Firefox 48. The system required the signing of browser extensions so that they could be installed in Firefox. Extensions without certificate or working certificate can't be installed in Fir
  21. Mozilla takes swipe at Chrome with 'Track THIS' project Mozilla is pushing Firefox's latest (and long-delayed) anti-ad tracking efforts, saying it protects user privacy better than Google's Chrome. Magdalena Petrova/IDG Mozilla this week touted Firefox's anti-ad tracking talents by urging users of other browsers to load 100 tabs to trick those trackers into offering goods and services suitable for someone in the 1%, an end-times devotee and other archetypes. Tagged as "Track THIS," the only-semi-tongue-in-cheek project lets
  22. The current Firefox for Android browser is feature-packed, with tons of security features and support for extensions, but it has never quite matched the performance that Chrome offers. Mozilla has spent the past few months working on a brand new browser for mobile, nicknamed 'Fenix,' and now it has entered public beta. The new Firefox for Android has already been publicly available for a few months, under the name 'Firefox Preview.' Mozilla says the browser is up to twice as fast as the current Firefox for Android, and it offers protection against tracking scripts by d
  23. Mozilla won't follow Google in limiting APIs in coming Extensions Manifest v3 Google revealed some time ago that it was working on a new Extensions Manifest file for the Chrome web browser. The company published an early draft of the Manifest v3 file and it turned out that some extension developers were not particularly happy with some of the changes. Developers spoke out against some of the planned changes as it could be the end for content blockers such as uBlock Origin and others. Google wanted to limit an API that content blockers and other extensions were using fo
  24. Facebook Container 2.0 for Firefox blocks Facebook's third-party site tracking Mozilla announced a big privacy push yesterday on the official site. The organization revealed that Firefox's Tracking Protection would be enabled by default for non-private browser windows for new and existing users to improve user privacy and minimize tracking. Mozilla published an updated version of its Facebook Container add-on for Firefox on June 4, 2019 as well which improves user privacy significantly. Facebook Container was released in March 2018 officially to separ
