Re: Somebody's already taken the reigns

You ask...

What makes FF so special to Mozilla that TB is seen as a poor relation to be shut away like this?

simple really.

Mozilla has new masters that will increasingly call the tune since it broke its ties to Google last year

Perhaps one of them has a vested interest so the TB devs are being pink slipped and had better be on the """"Lookout"""" for a new job. (Hint,Hint)

For me, TB is not Outlook. That is all I need to know. It runs on the three platforms that I use. Like most people I probably only use 10% of its features but it does the job I want it to.
