Just curious - where can I see those stats and compare them to earlier versions?

A minute spent making a corporate user happy can better be spent making many regular users happy. I’d much rather Mozilla spending its limited resources looking out for the billions of users that don’t have enterprise support systems already taking care of them.

Guess those billions of users just went elsewhere.

Pick your favorite stats site and compare numbers. I see a > 12% decline for desktop firefox over the last months with statcounter. Keep in mind that the numbers may be skewed and just see it as a trend not actual numbers.

Gives me some satisfaction to know that I am probably right but won't help SeaMonkey one bit :)

Sad times...

* remove userChrome.css
* replace autoconfig.js with configuration.json
* create omni.ja with non-standard compression algo

I think I need to find another hobby.

Do you deploy Firefox ESR in an organization?

If not you don't need to create the "admin-specified configuration" and can go on about your business as before. AIUI.
