Mozilla, the owner of Firefox, is fundraising for freedom of expression and privacy rights but failed to support these rights when their CEO, Brendan Eich, was forced to resign for supporting traditional marriage.
He made the private donation in a personal capacity unconnected to his work for Mozilla. However, when his donation became widely known a public campaign against him combined with a lack of support from Mozilla forced him to resign.
Now, unbelievably, Mozilla is running a fundraising campaign for freedom of expression and privacy rights.
Unfortunately for Mozilla, Eich has gone on to establish a new internet browser, Brave, that is now competing with Firefox.
No wonder they’ve started fundraising!
