Summary: Firefox, meet the Firefox

I don't know if this will go anywhere, but as both a die-hard Firefox
user and an advocate for wildlife, I think it should be said.... As you
may or may not know, "firefox" is the literal translation of the Chinese
name for the Red Panda. Yes, the OTHER panda -- the cute, orange,
raccoon-like one, not the big, black-and-white, bear-like one.

Here is a link to an article at the National Wildlife Foundation
[], "Fighting for the Firefox." I saw the title, and
I thought: what great potential this has as a "green" tie-in! Mozilla
Firefox would get mad props for putting the cute, cuddly face of its
mascot in a global limelight (and make lots of friends in China besides,
a huge market), and the panda would benefit from the exposure. How
terrible would it be for Firefox to be around in 30 years without its

So I dunno... I'm not great at the marketing bit, but I figure there
could be actual photos of the beastie on Firefox T-shirts, plush
firefoxes wearing Firefox products, with 1% going to conservation of the
species and its habitat... "adoptions" of habitat or captive
individuals... or, something. 

Anyway, wanted to put that out there, it's been rattling around in my
head for a day or two. it'd just be a great feel-good thingie, and a
great way to make Firefox/Mozilla to boost its image even further. But
you'll have to take it from there, 'cause I'm only an "idea guy". ;)

Thanks, and congrats on a consistenly awesome product!

Firefox or not Firefox
Name: M B Fletcher Email: mf38794atntlworlddotcom Product: Firefox Summary: Firefox or not Firefox Comments: You asked why I took it off but did not ask more than the basics. I put security but in fact I put on Fire fox today and found a GOOGLE front page for searching when I had nothing there before. I wondered if I had been hijacked or you had done a very stupid update. I still do not know for sure. I do not ever use Google that I know of. The biggest spy on computers in the world and you should know better. If I find it is correct on Firefox I will go back to IE.

Firefox within Firefox
For a short time now (likely since upgrading to FF 1.5.02) I've noticed that when running a Firefox session, ZA will popup a notice that Firefox -- verified the same exe as the running one -- is "trying to access the internet." This is confusing because it's already accessing the internet, thanks much. However, the destination IP is always along the lines of, which translates to, part of my ISP. So I've been saying yes. But I'm wondering why of a sudden this access is taking place, or being questioned, or what...
