Mozilla has now killed support for FTP in FireFox, my favourite protocol in my favourite browser. I can’t even use the browser to access an FTP server on my own PC… BOO!

FTP support has been disabled, and its full removal is planned for an upcoming release. Addressing this security risk reduces the likelihood of an attack while also removing support for a non-encrypted protocol.

On the other hand, I can still tweak network.ftp.enabled to true and enjoy the good old days a bit longer. 😎
