nicu’s FOSS’n’stuff: A history of Mozilla browsers design

I must admit, I didn’t really follow much of the early development of what would eventually become Mozilla Firefox at the time, so this is a fascinating read for me, from 2012.

Related to last post—I still have a lot of love for Mozilla Firefox, and the current ‘Quantum’ version is a major improvement. And I’m a big fan of their Container system for isolating various groups of websites so they cannot leak tracking info or follow you elsewhere.

Firefox (Not) Sync

Usually, my copy of Mozilla Firefox on my Mac will periodically sync my bookmarks to the cloud via my Firefox account just fine. But every so often, I’m finding that it’s stuck while syncing. That wouldn’t be a problem, except for the small matter of all my bookmarks, as well as my download history, disappearing until I quit and restart Firefox. Annoying! I’m seriously considering switching over to Safari, just to get shot of this issue once and for all.
