    How dare a person have person political opinions and try to run an entirely unrelated company

    "She added that Beard has one of the clearest visions she has ever seen and is also a strong candidate for CEO."

    So was the last guy until he was excoriated and "let go" for his political views.

  5. Already switched browsers. Goodbye Mozilla. It's been a great 12 years.

    Ha, Chris Beard, he's a beard for the company it works.
  7. This is only going to last as long as it takes some self-righteous Mozilla employee to discover he supported legislation that would have stopped turtle bridges in Florida.

    How can he not have a beard? He should be ashamed.

    I think his head shot is way too touched up. It hurts my eyes. I don't care about any other aspect of this.

    I guess it's finally time for me to use a non-Mozilla browser. This is absolutely wrong in every respect to demand someone be let go because of an unrelated political view which he has every right to express!!! I have always used Mozilla (originally as Mozilla, then Firefox etc)... I cannot continue to use a browser that punishes someone for having an opinion.

    Why don't you just hold your breath until they hire Mr. Eich back?

    Now if they made you pay for Firefox, it would be a different story. 'Cause then I'd stop using it, no matter who was CEO.. I have my principals too, you know!:mad:

    Well like they mentioned this guy is only interim CEO, once they find a permanent replacement hopefully he will fit your shirt requirements.

  16. Ok. special interest groups, time to start hiring investigators to dig into the past and see if there is anything there that can be remotely interpreted as interfering with your agenda.
