I'm finding the Waterfox section of Reddit almost unusable*. Any other recommended forum or group for Waterfox users please?

* Example: would not allow me to post until I had 'corrected' words like 'Autodesk' and - yes - 'Waterfox'.

OK, sorry Dan, that's where I thought I'd posted!

Just saw this, don't know if you're still interested. I also use Waterfox, and Reddit is the only game in town. The layout is strange and confusing, and I've had to force myself to use it. I haven't been able to duplicate your problem. Could it be your spellchecker that's misbehaving, not the website?

I found just one other forum for Waterfox, and it has an average of 1 post for each year since WF's inception.

Mozillazine has the potential to be a help site, but there aren't enough WF users here to provide support.

There was nothing scandalous.

Please see https://old.reddit.com/r/waterfox/comme ... t/fi9ivtc/ from me; there's also a comment from Alex.

4td8s--
Not a scandal, but they are an advertising company. I use a bookmark to duckduckgo in all my browsers, so I hope no one makes money on it.

And there are plenty of browsers. If WF gets shady, there are enough other choices besides Chrome. The world won't collapse.
