Sorry, Mozilla Broke That Link

I have been getting E-mails about some links on FirefoxFacts.com not working. That is just crazy talk I thought. Mozilla isn’t goofy enough to start removing extensions and changing links left and right, are they? Well I have to say I was proven wrong.

Mozilla’s new addon Web site has broken my Web site and a dozen others out there that have linked to extensions in the past.

So if you are checking out a link here and find an “extension not found” that is because Mozilla ditched it to the wayside. There have been some really good themes and extensions missing from the new Web site as well. Why delete them Mozilla crew?

I have been a big Mozilla fan since day one, but this time around I have to call a spade a spade and say they screwed up. Bring back the old Mozilla Updates Web site!

Update: Looks like links are coming back – or so I am being told via E-mail. I have been talking with several people from Mozilla and they promise they the broken links should only be a temporary thing as they work the bugs out of the new system. Mozilla, you won me back over again! Thanks for getting it fixed quickly!
