Re: Thunderbird/Icedove security fixes since ESR 31.8.0


i only can imagine,  that mozilla or developers are  under control
of "zero day" companies or other services .

if this is so, i hope to get soon a better browser
with less code and better security.

This bug desaster will never stop ! sec. holes are a feature not a
mistake" / bug.
I think in 70% of any software.(upgrade reasons etc...)

paris showed us again,  that backdoored software cannot save lifes!

But agents want the software to be buggy and full with backdoors !

This is nonsense !


Another mistakes of mozilla since many years:

-They put more and more code in one tool,
better would be to split firefox in different "mods"

sec mod, dev mod, player mod, what else....
minimal mod,

-They change config parameters too fast in every new release.

- In some cases they dont explain functions the wiki.

- They use closed source in the upload binary

-They release new code too fast and with too less quality testing; the
community  could not do that good enough as we see in many cases.

-Firefox 1.0 was  a 1 or 2 MB big file  and it was good for surfing in
the web.
Not every Grandma needs a network analyser .
But Grandma doesnt want to get the bugs from this analyser or else
....PDF Viewer...

- I Never saw a slower PDF Viewer like the new from mozilla.
Yes,  i know before that there will come bugs soon.And they came

But Mozilla releases and releases and releases....Its frustrating !
What people work there?
Testers ? Hobby coder?

Its nonsense to integrate any and many viewers and special tools in the

Its better to check (all!) add-ons and let the users decide what they
need or not.

- "Amazing blog"   :




so much information!?????


For debian it would be better NOT to follow any
new code from mozilla   anymore.
And to fix ONE Release for a long time.
Or to start  up a totally new browser system  for linux.

how to do this is if google is sponsor from debian and mozilla ?

STOP now the nearing end of free software!
