Firefox 98.1 removes Russian companies

Two Russian internet companies have been removed by tech creators Mozilla that operate the Firefox browser.

The latest update of Firefox, 98.1, removes Yandex and Mail.ru from the browser’s setup options, including the search engine selection.

Yandex and Mail.ru have been removed as optional search providers in the drop-down search menu in Firefox.

If you previously installed a customized version of Firefox with Yandex or Mail.ru, offered through partner distribution channels, this release removes those customizations, including add-ons and default bookmarks.

Where applicable, your browser will revert back to default settings, as offered by Mozilla. All other releases of Firefox remain unaffected by the change.

It is the latest salvo in a large scale financial and socio-political blockade by countries and corporations opposing the aggressive war in Ukraine and Russia’s invasion of its land.

    By “default” do they mean reverting to the paid spyware from their much bigger rivals?
