It was (in my head) around the same time as moz was rolling out ff57 which seriously did bork many users ff install
You'll make Moonchild weep tears of blood if you compare Pale Moon with contemporary FF and their cascading problems! And FF 57 broke away from XUL intentionally so it would've disabled every XUL extension that people had.

S'not my intention.
My point is simply that the ff57 "upgrade" didn't simply hose legacy extensions - which anyone who had their eye on the ball knew anyway.
My point is just that the "upgrade" hosed the browser for many peeps.
I was there, I watched it, it was a FAQ:
"Browser don't work, help"
"Recent update?"
"Yep"
"Uninstall. Start again".

That's what happens with rabid release. Too rushed to push the build out of the door without adequate testing. Also when unlike Google you spread yourself thin across dozens of unrelated projects and funding 'progressive' SJW causes.

Does Mozilla do this? I didn't know this. Then again, I don't pay attention to Mozilla anymore.

I recall correcting you when you last spouted similar crap.
I see no reason to correct you again.

Why bother replying at all in that case?

That's because there is nothing to correct.
For reference: https://www.mozillalabs.com/en-US/projects/ and https://labs.mozilla.org/projects/
Then there's their flagship services: Pocket by Firefox, Firefox Lockwise, Firefox Monitor, and Firefox Send. (note it's all Firefox, not Mozilla, in the name)

Because I'm guessing he's fishing for getting another cooldown period.
