Hello fellow Wikipedians,

Alternatively, you can add {{nobots|deny=InternetArchiveBot}} to keep me off the page altogether. I made the following changes:

Source for abbreviation is somewhat lacking[edit]

"For the abbreviation of Firefox, Mozilla prefers Fx or fx, though it is often abbreviated as FF.[51]" Is this even true? The linked source only mentions the Fx or fx. There doesn't seem to be any reference to FF at all. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 124.171.103.219 (talk) 09:04, 28 March 2016 (UTC)

Is everyone cool with the new stacked layout?[edit]

Hello

As can be inferred from the edit diff, I have deployed a new stacked layout for version number information. They now occupy the full width of the infobox. This capability has been part of the {{Infobox web browser}} since April 2014. I thought after two years, I might as well push a little harder and bolder for both feedback and bug fixing.

Looking forward for feedback.

Best regards,

10.6–10.8[edit]

Starting with the Firefox version 49 release, so long to support for 10.6, 10.7 and 10.8. - See https://www.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/48.0/releasenotes/ So 48 should still support 10.6 - 10.8. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 94.220.94.237 (talk) 08:13, 13 August 2016 (UTC)

How Firefox Makes Money for Mozilla Foundation[edit]

Hello Everyone,

I'm new and this is my first post on a Talk page. Please excuse me if I don't follow all of the protocols exactly (I'm still learning)

I was curious about the topic since Mozilla is a nonprofit and IE and Chrome have more obvious ways to generate income for Microsoft and Google.

According to: http://www.investopedia.com/articles/investing/041315/how-mozilla-firefox-and-google-chrome-make-money.asp the search feature makes money for them.

I think we could link to Mozilla Corporation which explains the business aspect of Mozilla.

I'm grateful for any pointers. There is so much to learn.

What do you think? I'm interested in opinions, thoughts, ideas, etc.

Thanks, --Greenchile99 (talk) 09:44, 16 August 2016 (UTC)

The "ref" doesn't need to be added as you've got the link above.
Otherwise, a brief summary would be appropriate. Walter Görlitz (talk) 14:24, 16 August 2016 (UTC)
Hello, Greenchile99. As Walter says, the link you provided acts as a better source. You can study WP:SECONDARY to find out why. Best regards, Codename Lisa (talk) 08:02, 17 August 2016 (UTC)
