59881267 story Mozilla Ditches Firefox's New-Tab Monetization Plans 195 Posted by Soulskill on Saturday May 10, 2014 @11:40AM from the benefits-of-asking-for-feedback dept. hypnosec writes "Mozilla has ditched Firefox's new-tab monetization plans because they 'didn't go over well' with the community. Johnathan Nightingale, Mozilla's VP of Firefox, said much of Firefox's community was worried Mozilla would 'turn Firefox into a mess of logos sold to the highest bidder' and that users wouldn't have control over this or see any actual benefit. 'That's not going to happen. That's not who we are at Mozilla.'"
