Description

a year ago
Lately Firefox changed the type of messaging, likely in an attempt to be funny / hip.

Please do NOT have messages such as:
"Fun fact: Firefox users are the smartest, funniest, best-looking people on the Web. [Citation needed]"

"Reading, writing, arithmetic — and now Web literacy. Learn basic Web skills key to crushing it in the 21st century."

Similar phrases have been used on the release notes
  https://www.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/48.0/releasenotes/

"Roar for moar protection against harmful downloads! We've got your back"

"GNU/Linux fans: Get better Canvas performance with speedy Skia support. Try saying that three times fast"

All of these messages add no value at all, other than suggesting that Mozilla does NOT understand what they're doing. I do not want to be "crushing it", nor do I care about Wikipedia puns. If you don't have something to say; don't say it.

Another option would be to change Firefox and disable these snippets entirely.
