Firefox Send closes permanently because they have not known (or wanted to) solve the fraudulent use they were making of the service

Firefos Send Close

Early last year, Mozilla He launched Firefox Send, which was an alternative to WeTransfer, but with the philosophy of the company that has become famous for developing the fox browser. As you can see, we are talking in the past tense, because a few hours ago they decided to end the service, and personally I will not say that I will not miss it, since I even had it in my favorites waiting for information on when it would be available again.

The answer, at least as of this writing, is that it will never be again. Definitively close. Right now, the service website,, redirects us to the page Mozilla official, from where we can download the browser and access information related to the company. They give little explanation about it, other than that it has been used to send malware and phishing attacks, something they could not allow. After a while without making changes, they have decided to hit the off button.

Firefox Send and Firefox Notes close

Firefox Send won't just walk away. As we read in the note posted a few hours ago, will go hand in hand with Firefox Notes, which was a service that allowed us to synchronize our notes with Android and in browsers through an extension, but both options will stop working at the end of October. Anyone who has notes saved in this service will be able to use a new option that will be included to export them.

Personally, I will not miss Firefox Notes, because it is a service that I did not use and others like Evernote are much more widespread and better integrated into all types of software. But I can't say the same for Firefox Send, a quick and easy service that I used to send dozens of gigs from one computer to another several months ago. But hey, sure WeTransfer give "Like" to this news, as many of us will return to it.

    What's going on with the Mozilla company? Just bad news in recent years.
