Why doesn't someone run a campaign to enlighten people about Google Analytics? I sent an email to my local national socialist party regarding whether it was appropriate to use (((Google Analytics))), (((CloudFlare))), (((WordPress))), and (((Disqus))) on a politically sensitive website, they didn't even reply.

Yes, since all the companies involved can profile their visitors as nationalists, and google's ad bucket targeting does precisely this. A major national newspaper paid left wing extremists to hack a large forum (1.1m accounts) just to publish the identities of a few anons who said some mildly racist stuff, and we have a TV program dedicated to this too (doxing "internet trolls") so it wouldn't be foreign if some of these (((companies))) gave their assistance in "reporting on far right extremists".
Guess the country.

Quick breakdown of what's going on here (I work at Mozilla, and have worked on the Add-ons site in the past):

The "Get Add-ons" view in Firefox is an iframe to a page hosted by addons.mozilla.org. AMO, as all Mozilla sites, use GA to collect aggregate visitor statistics. We negotiated a special contract with Google [1] to only collect a subset of data and that that data is only used for statistical purposes.

Matthew Collins

It's not the issue itself that bothers me. It's technically just embedding a page in a space where addons like uBlock Origin or uMatrix whitelist by default (addons.about-scheme) to avoid breaking things, thus sort of unintentionally backdooring a tracker. It's unacceptable but understandable; it's not intentionally being directly bolted into the framework of Firefox.

What bothers me is that Mozilla cuck's responses.
if you don't like it, don't use it/block it
it's fine, we have a contract with Google so they can't datamine you or sell the info
it's anonymous data, why are you worried?
we NEED this data
just trust us, dumbfucks
let's have a civil conversation please

Seeing where GNU has gone over the last 10 years, I want to say to the new crop of (((programmers))):
You serve your users. Full stop. If you only plan to serve yourself, don't release your code. Keep it secret. Do the world a favor and don't dump your pile of shitcode on the internet if your response is "well you could always block/modify it!" If it's inventive but works "just well enough" (typical of any "LeL just fork it!"-philosophy project) it will be a cancer attached to our sides for years as bright minds bend around fixing your shit code.
You serve the users. Your code should be oriented around the users. The users have rights:
They have the right to options for any behavior which can differ (be KDE 3.5, not GNOME 2 or 3).
They have the right to have an interface which doesn't change much, unless absolutely necessary.
Downstream developers who depend on your code are also users; the API is their interface, and the rule above applies.
They have the right to be able to compose your programs with others, so design it with UNIX philosophy in mind (flexible input and output).
They have the right to not be tracked and analyzed.
They have the right to a strongly stable, modular application which easily lends itself to extension.
They have the right to new *functional* features (├Žsthetic features don't count as "new features," are an utter waste of time, and should be avoided).
They have the right to have their requests and bugs listened to, but not the right to have features which would break others' right to use features they enjoy.
All projects will break some of the above at some point. Most FOSS projects break the above way too often. FOSS is in constant beta. The reason things don't seem to get that much better is because once there's a foundation written, it fucking dissolves like a sandcastle exposed to the ocean by the time a project depending on that foundation makes it out. I'm sure half of developer time is fixing bugs caused by upstream API breakage.
Knowledge changes, sure, but knowledge generally tends to crystallize as time proceeds forward and more comes in to refine that knowledge. FOSS code is like knowledge on a fictional universe: fickle, inconsistent, changes all the time.
Please, junior FOSS developer. Unless you're going to strive for correct architecture (and you *know* what Big-O and Big-Omega notation are), keep your script-code-written-in-C to yourself and not on the internet!

I want to add: 2005-2015 has shown that FOSS-philosophy not only drags down the quality of software by making the design/development of it uneconomical [in the sense they're Doing It For Free(tm)], but drags down proprietary products too as people will use "just good enough" for free instead of "well built" for tens/hundreds of Dollars. This puts pressure on proprietary to cut corners to reduce costs, so "well built" gets crowded out by free garbage. FOSS only kicks ass when its competition is a monopoly.

BS
Most FOSS projects break the above way too often.
Because you are the law ?
FOSS is in constant beta
Because non-free solutions aren't ?
The reason things don't seem to get that much better is because once there's a foundation written, it fucking dissolves like a sandcastle exposed to the ocean by the time a project depending on that foundation makes it out.
There is not only one reason to this.
One of the major reasons is because of hardware manufacturers who go way to fast into introducing new products who don't give any source/documentation.
OSS code is like knowledge on a fictional universe: fickle, inconsistent, changes all the time.
Gee I wonder why ? maybe something to do with hardware.
2005-2015 has shown that FOSS-philosophy not only drags down the quality of software by making the design/development of it uneconomical [in the sense they're Doing It For Free(tm)]
Because other entities who have billions of $ do sane standards:
http://noooxml.wikidot.com/
but drags down proprietary products too as people will use "just good enough" for free instead of "well built" for tens/hundreds of Dollars.
Implying that free software is only made by hobbyist.
Implying that free software doesn't employ people.
Implying that non-free solutions works better and don't abuses people.
This puts pressure on proprietary to cut corners to reduce costs
They didn't need free software competition do to that.
FOSS only kicks ass when its competition is a monopoly.
Software kicks ass when the developers had a sane computing course which is a mix of hardware and software learning.
Software kicks ass when the developers isn't a piece of shit developing in java or with tools that he can't verify.

To be fair your whole post is garbage.

That's the point of charging for software and restricting copy rights to the copyright holder to license. Someone is paying you to give a shit instead of you just writing it up to the point of minimum tolerable functionality for your needs.

FreeCAD vs Siemens NX, NX wins.
Hell, FreeCAD vs Autodesk Inventor, FreeCAD still loses.

Looks like you haven't seen projects which aren't useless autistic shit stuck in an infinite bikeshed loop.

Ayden Gray
Ayden Gray

way to move the goalposts faggot. You said proprietary software was well-built, and not an overbloated resource-hogging pile of enterprise quality(tm) crap, which is blatantly false.

charging for copies of software
everyone knows this is a retarded idea. Same with charging for music and ebooks. In the beginning, the price of software was included with the hardware, or covered as part of support contracts. And now having realized how retarded selling renting 1s and 0s is, everything is moving back to subscription services and streaming (albeit with crappy DRM).

and copyright is a jew scheme created by a company of publishing jews to jew authors by buying their manuscripts (along with the rights) for peanuts and selling copies without paying royalties.

post about user rights/decent software
list all the ways FOSS is failing
Every programmer above "koding with karly" thinks they're big shit so they fuck up great code bases by calling them "obsolete" and rewriting a shit replacement from scratch, which will be scrapped for something worse later (until the project dies or goes irrelevant). There are rare exceptions like OpenBSD.
moving goalposts
You mean the ones you erected? I gave great examples of proprietary programs which have to be user-oriented to get paid. Since FOSS doesn't use scarcity of copyright to derive payments that developers would need to rely on, to spend as much effort and time as it would take to not just half-ass it until it works just enough (because "It's FOSS! If it's broken you fix it! *Closed: nofix*"): FOSS projects which are touted as replacements for proprietary solutions are often anemic and fragile.
Yes proprietary sucks, but to plug your ears, stomp your feet, and sing "LA LA LA" to the fact FOSS often times sucks way worse (with *some* exceptions) is just dumb. Do you have a computer just to watch it boot and be stuck doing things in terms of pre-2000 tech (yet somehow be slower and less stable than the pre-2000 proprietary solutions, ON MODERN HARDWARE!).

You don't believe me? Load up a 500,000+ row CSV in LibreOffice Calc, and do the same in Excel 2010. Which one loaded faster (assume you launched the app first and went to File > Open, so as to give LibreOffice a chance)? Now, select all the data and go to your chart creation options. In LibreOffice, you will wait 5 minutes just for the window to open because the fuckheads developing it thought it'd be cute to make a "modern" spreadsheet which gave you LIVE PREVIEWS of the chart type selected in the window (which makes it crunch the whole dataset). Excel 2010 gives you the options without rendering previews with the data. Not only that, but that 5+ minutes LibreOffice Calc takes to get through all that data is far and beyond above the less-than 10 seconds Excel 2010 takes.

Above when I said shit coders should just write their code privately and not share it, rather than share a shit "works just enough" solution everyone is stuck with and has to waste time engineering around? I'm talking about projects like OpenOffice/LibreOffice, FreeDesktop, etc.

So, yea. Fuck you FOSS. At least the BSDs and illumos are trying to do it right (albeit at an iceberg's pace, which is better than what GNU became I guess).

As I mentioned in #1107: we will not be removing analytics support entirely. It is extremely useful to us and we have already weighed the cost/benefit of using tracking.
Actually, @muffinresearch pointed out we could probably just observe Do Not Track here, because this pane is actually a web page loaded in an iFrame inside the browser page.
like I needed any more proof Firecox devs are retarded. this would mean to get rid of this builtin cancer, you mark yourself as a 1% tinfoil hatter (via DNT header). never trust any retard who insists (((telemetry))) is important. When it's not malicious, they're just covering up for their pajeet code.

Thank you for all the proof that you're giving to help your opinion.

That's the point of charging for software and restricting copy rights to the copyright holder to license
No.
And by that you just proved that you don't understand of licenses and people work.
I sell my services and the time that I passed on writing the software.
If I'm paid.
Yes I want to eat at the end of the day and all my code is under GPL.
If that's my goal
If I do software for myself it's for myself.
I share it publicly to people and for the few that will use it I'll be happy that they found something that I made that helped them.
But the initial intention wasn't for a specific person besides myself.

Someone is paying you to give a shit instead of you just writing it up to the point of minimum tolerable functionality for your needs.
Implying that I (or people) don't give a shit about anything.
Implying that I don't like doing my work correctly.

There are rare exceptions like OpenBSD.
BSDfag totally not shilling it's software/cucklicense.

I gave great examples of proprietary programs which have to be user-oriented to get paid
You have given example of commercial program who have enormous advertisement budget and who are shilling in public schools.

Since FOSS doesn't use scarcity of copyright to derive payments that developers would need to rely on
You mean software doesn't abuse the users by making them pay for the copypasted code more tan what it's worth ?
Want more functions/bug correct etc... ?
Pay a developer to do it.
It's has simple has that.

FOSS projects which are touted as replacements for proprietary solutions are often anemic and fragile.
Are often tackled by other solutions they were accustomed too since school and because "it just works"that's what the normies want.
It just works and take the simplest solution that they were forced to use when in school even tho they get a dildo the size of Saturn V up their ass.

Yes proprietary sucks, but to plug your ears, stomp your feet, and sing "LA LA LA" to the fact FOSS often times sucks way worse
Ten+ years ago I would have said the same but nowadays I don't think so.

In LibreOffice, you will wait 5 minutes just for the window to open because the fuckheads developing it thought it'd be cute to make a "modern" spreadsheet which gave you LIVE PREVIEWS of the chart type selected in the window (which makes it crunch the whole dataset).
I have multiple CVS with more than a million line and it doesn't slow down the opening of the file.
The hardware where you installed LO must have been shit.
I agree tho the rendering is useless.
Make a ticket to the libreoffice team.

Fuck you FOSS
You do know that foss stand for "Free" has in gratis and "open source" has the shit open source initiative ?

Anyway there's no point continuing to argue with you you've made your mind with no real/correct reason.

Yea right. Try working in a pipeline using Blender. It's a mess when it comes to rigging or animating and then passing files along to your next client. While Maya may be bloated, you are getting a solid core of tools; modelling, unwrapping, texturing, baking, animating and rigging. Yea with Blender you could spend time using plugins and so on, refining the process till it's smooth like butter. But at that point you could have just stuck with a industry level program like Max or Maya. Still, I respect Blender because it has come so far.

he is frustrated but he accepts in exchange that I help him getting blender to work
I accept to teach him for free
It has been two years since that and the guy has never been so happy with his computer.

Nathaniel Reed

Thanks lad, you just convinced me to dump Firefox. Will go Palemoon until a new actual Phoenix enters the scene.

Go read the Mozilla Github you faggot. They even make a false statement it seems. If they aren't giving the DATA to Google, then why use Google Analytics, when Piwiks which gives Mozilla their ownership of their own Data? In other words, these fucks are tracking people.

Carter Torres

only for about: pages though. That might well be a bug.

Kayden Ortiz
Kayden Ortiz

Is the DNT turned on by default? If not, then they're still supporting tracking.

Anyway, it doesn't matter. If they had to wait for a backlash to disable this, then they will do it again and again. It's not the first time they did this (remember "directory tiles" ?).

Also, has anyone noticed that anytime there's a thread criticizing firefox here, a swarm of mozilla apologists come out to defend their anti-user decisions? Hard to believe, but it seems they truly have shills here.

Chase Campbell
Chase Campbell

then it's better to just not enable DNT (which makes you stick out because you send DNT header) and never click on the "get addons" tab
DNT is disabled by default in all browsers and always was

I just ran firecox on my isolated box to test how gay it is these days
connects to detectportal.firecox.com on startup (apparently for grannies at starbucks that need help with captive portals)
when trying to connect to long domain name such as gionwegioenrsgubnseribaseiubfasiubfaewiubfawengfiaeurbgaeiurgaergaerhaerhaerhaer.com, queries support.cuckzilla.com instead
when trying to connect to domain that doesn't exist such as 5000000niggers.com, subsequently queries support.cuckzilla.com
gives you cancer if you press open the "get addons" menu
(((safe browsing))) cancer enabled by default
a bunch of faggot shit in bookmarks by default
homepage is some firefux page by default
this bullshit exists and is all enabled by default:
>https://wiki.mozilla.org/Security/Application_Reputation
>browser.safebrowsing.downloads.enabled: enables application reputation checks for downloaded files
> browser.safebrowsing.downloads.remote.enabled: enables remote lookups
hamburger menus
all kinds of (((UX))) stuff like popup text (luckily not modal dialog boxes) and animations
on first run, 3 tabs are open:
>1 blah blah marketing crap Create Firefox Account XDDD
>2 firecox homepage "Mozilla Firecox is free and open source software from the non-profit Mozilla Foundation. Know your rights"
>3 firecox browser privacy notice; >you are secure goy! >you are privacy goy!
pocket shit. don't even care to find out what this bullshit is
sends a bunch of shit to incoming.telemetry.cuckzilla.org on close (fixed by disabling "data choices")
opening new tab shows a bunch of cancer, and makes HTTP requests all over the place
every 5 lines in wireshark, see "something something cuckflare", without ever even browsing to a single website
hamburger menu has more cancer such as "sign into sync"
want to press "hamburger menu -> customize" to remove retarded bullshit such as "pocket" and crap on the blank tabs, but this causes HTTP requests to tiles-cloudfront.cdn.cuckzilla.net and all kinds of other bullshit - can't be bothered to scroll through the 40000 packets it added to the trace
"tracking protection" enabled by default, which, according to the support page, is another piece of shit like (((safe browsing))) which just blocks a list of pages. note that this is separate from DNT, which is still off by default

pure cancer. why would I ever run such insufferable bullshit? just use Links or some crap like palememe if you need (((JS)))

Adrian Rogers

Then don't use addons at all, use Windows 7 (or 10) with Chrome and no addons.

he's mad that nobody will address his beloved web browser by the real name

Then don't use addons at all, use Windows 7 (or 10) with Chrome and no addons.
That's literally the only way to "blend in" with tracking.
The only real way to blend in is to use something like Tor Browser, which actually tries (i.e hundreds of KLOC) to mitigate the massive footprint modern webshit browsers leave on the web. Personally I just use Links and palememe with JS disabled because I don't want to sit around for a minute waiting for each article I open to load, nor do I want to wait 5 secods each time I attempt to move the scroll bar.

It would be theoretically possible to solve. Run the browser in some kind of container/VM, and bundle some (very, very small) OS in it. If the OS is 100-200 mb, you're still smaller than Firefox.

I think some modern fingerprinting relies on details of your graphics hardware. You'd still have to disable plenty of javascript.

The modern Internet is nearly unusable without Javascript.

But you could include some graphics driver shim that artificially limits performance in the VM bundle.

I'm using it too, but only for normalfag activities, youtube and email.
I use tor for everything else.
Opera is botnet: closed source, privacy policy for their """vpn""" claims to bar you access to it if you post "offensive" stuff.

Can you prove it?
Just install it and look where botnet like features was spooted in firefox and compare.
Plus, the maintainer of gnu icecat is Ruben Rodrigez he his the maintainer of Gnu Trisquel.
Trisquel which has removed chromium because it was too poozed to have any redemption.
If this guy thinks that the software can't be unbonneted then he wouldn't waist his time.

So Palemoon or Waterfox for no botnet (linux of course)

David Phillips

Palemoon is probably more tinfoil friendly, but it's also less compatible with some websites, and has some issues with certain kinds of videos.

Jace Price

For ad/tracking blocking I run privoxy as a local proxy just setup to block domains. As far as I can see all Firefox network connections go through the proxy so this might be something you could try.

The only tinfoil friendly browser is one that runs on openbsd. Which would be links/lynx. If you can get waterfox/palemoon to run on openbsd do tell how you did it and maybe submit patches upstream.

Mozilla has a legal agreement with Google to the effect that Google is meant to act like a dumb processor for the data before sending it all to Mozilla, and that they pinky promise not to look at it.
The fact that that idiot millennial "developer" tofumatt (Jesus Christ) actually believes this is reassuring in any way whatsoever just reflects the sad state of the industry.

Reread the thread. There is NO WAY for nu-addons to block this shit, and old-style addon support is getting shoah'd in very near future.
