Mozilla & Gecko clones Hooray for Mozilla. That about sums this story up. Remember all those domain names ICE keeps seizing? There are countless ways to get around these silly seizures,like using your operating system's hosts file. To make this a less cumbersome process, several Firefox extensions dot he work for you. Well, since copyright infringement is naturally a threat to the security of the United States, the Department of Homeland Security contacted Mozilla, asking them to take down one of these extensions. Mozilla declined.

From what I read, DHS requested Mozilla to take it down. It was not a cease and desist letter, and DHS did not seem to threaten any legal action if they did not comply.

There is a significant difference between that and the Gestapo.
