Firefox Commits Suicide by Intolerance

Just about a year ago, Mozilla, the parent of Firefox, gave in to a band of vigilantes and fired their CEO for having made a political contribution several years previous to a ballot initiative against gay marriage in California. After that happened, several church-related groups called for a boycott of Firefox.
In the last 12 months, Firefox's user share -- an estimate of the portion of all those who reach the Internet via a desktop browser -- has plummeted by 34%.  
I support equal rights for gays including gay marriage. I do not, however, support getting people fired because they hold views opposing mine. If Mozilla goes belly-up because of this, it will be something they had coming.
