In 2015, the FBI hacked Tor to identify users of child sex websites. Now, Mozilla is begging courts to divulge how the operation was carried out so that it can ensure its code for Firefox remains secure.
Weirdly, there’s never been a 64-bit version of Firefox until now. But if you’re running Windows 7 or later, you can now explore the internet with the browser while using twice its current 32 bits.
It’s been in the planning since the start of the year and testing since September, but the first version of Firefox for iOS is finally available in the App Store.
Mozilla has jut released Firefox 41 and it claims that the desktop version is the first browser to have a built-in instant messaging. Powered by WebRTC, it should let you IM if you use Windows, Mac or Linux.
Mozilla has published a blog post explaining that a Firefox exploit is running in the wild that can search for and upload files from your computer—but you can install and update to solve the problem right now.
Most websites sit in your browser in boring old 2D. But Mozilla has decided that it's time to change that, and the launch of MozVR.com brings virtual reality to the mainstream web.
Mozilla knows what's up. The non-profit is aware that the vast majority of its users think that privacy on the internet is falling apart, so it's launching a new strategic privacy initiative called Polaris. And you'll never guess who's on board. Just kidding, it's totally obvious: the Tor Project.
Mozilla has announced that it's launching a new browser, dedicated to developers, on November 10th—that'll allow them to "debug the whole Web."
At $35, Chomecast is a very good deal. But Mozilla thinks it can do a little better, with its own Firefox OS-based streaming stick, the $12 MatchStick.
It's no secret that everybody's thinking about privacy and cyber security more since the world was pummeled with the unsettling, spy-novel truths of the Snowden revelations. Now, companies are starting to seize onto the zeitgeist by building more secure tools for the internet. And it sounds like Tor will be at the…
Ever since Chromecast and Roku hit the market, rumor has said that Mozilla was working on a more open, tinkerer-friendly type of streaming dongle. This week, Mozilla developer Christian Heilmann tweeted a photo that sure looks like a nearly-finalized product, and GigaOM got to play with a prototype. Casting's about to…
It's official: the last holdout for the open web has fallen. Flanked on all sides by Google, Microsoft, Opera, and (it appears) Safari's support and promotion of the EME DRM-in-HTML standard, Mozilla is giving in to pressure from Hollywood, Netflix, et al, and will be implementing its own third-party version of DRM.…
Back in February, Mozilla announced that it was going to trial promotional tiles in its 'new tab' page. Now, the company has revealed that the idea "didn't go over well" with users—but it will try again anyway.
Mozilla just released a pretty extensive new Firefox redesign, with cleaned up visuals and some great new features. It looks pretty different from the old Firefox—and rather similar to Google Chrome—with some deep customization options and nice integration between desktop and mobile browsers.

Today, most tech companies are polluting the internet with stupid pranks. But there's one brave statement being made on the internet that isn't a dumb joke at all.
