Web News / Mozilla is changing how Firefox handles privacy protection
« on: September 04, 2018, 11:43:48 AM »

In order to help give users the private web browsing experience they expect and deserve, Firefox will strip cookies and block storage access from third-party tracking content.

Quote
Mozilla says it will soon be modifying its Firefox browser to block all user tracking on websites by default.

“In the near future, Firefox will, by default, protect users by blocking tracking while also offering a clear set of controls to give our users more choice over what information they share with sites,” said Mozilla VP of product strategy Nick Nguyen.

Quote
By the time Firefox 65 is released, Mozilla says that it hopes to have all cross-site tracking blocked by default....

LandzDown Lounge / Memorial Day 2018

For mitch, the Phantom Phixer, who kept the F4s flying.

Freedom is not free.  All gave some, but some gave all.  Honor and remember those who paid the ultimate price, and be grateful for their sacrifice.


"If you are able, save for them a place inside of you and save one backward glance when you are leaving for the places they can no longer go. Be not ashamed to say you loved them, though you may or may not have always. Take what they have taught you with their dying and keep it with your own. And in that time when men decide and feel safe to call the war insane, take one moment to embrace those gentle heroes you left behind."

Major Michael Davis O'Donnell
1 January 1970
170th Assault Helicopter Company
Dak To, Vietnam



Mike was shot down a few months later on 24 March 1970 while attempting to extract 8 members of LRRP RT Pennsylvania.  The 3 American Special Forces and 5 Montagnard tribesmen were 14 miles inside Cambodia in Ratanokiri Province, chased by a NVA Counter-Recon Hunter team with dogs, and had declared a Prairie Fire emergency. 

The Bikinis aircrews supporting MACV-SOG operations had a creed they lived by ... "You take them in - you get them out!"

RED THREE'S last transmission before his Huey burst into flames above the hot LZ was "I've got all eight, I'm coming out."

Listed as KIA on 7 February 1978 (Presumptive Finding of Death).  Remains repatriated on 12 April 1995.  Identified on 20 June 2001.  Came home to Arlington National Cemetery in a group burial on 16 August 2001.

(The cross was changed to a diamond)

O'Donnell received the Distinguished Flying Cross, the Air Medal, the Bronze Star and the Purple Heart.

His "gentle heroes" poem was recited during the dedication of the Vietnam Veterans Memorial Wall in 1982, and rolled by in the closing credits of the 1987 movie "Hamburger Hill".

The "eleventh hour of the eleventh day of the eleventh month" of 1918.



For mitch, the Phantom Phixer, who kept the F4s flying. We remember, always:

"If you are able, save for them a place inside of you and save one backward glance when you are leaving for the places they can no longer go. Be not ashamed to say you loved them, though you may or may not have always. Take what they have taught you with their dying and keep it with your own.

In grateful recognition of Captain Gary Michael Rose, who was finally awarded the Medal of Honor on 23 October 2017 for his service as a Special Forces medic in Operation Tailwind.  Another top secret, covert Hatchet Force mission in Laos ... it recovered a treasure trove of collateral intelligence, the extraction required strikes from 72 aircraft dropping a half-million pounds of bombs, rockets and napalm.
