As a Firefox developer, all I can say is that people like you, "Master 
Br" simply give Firefox a bad name when you make ill-informed statements 
like the first and second paragraphs quoted above and follow them up 
with something like your third paragraph.  I'm quite surprised that 
several well-intentioned people took the time to respond to your 
original mail (which I would have simply ignored as a troll) and sad to 
see the abuse you have heaped on them in response to their courtesy.

Luckily, most Firefox users are not at all like you.
