Mozilla is closing two of its older products, Firefox Send and Firefox Notes, the company announced today.
"Both services are discontinued and will no longer be part of our product family."
Of the two services, the most popular was Firefox Send, a free file-sharing service, and one of the few that supported file-sharing in encrypted formats.
Released him March of 2019, and gained a lot of fans, but the service went offline earlier this summer as there was constant abuse by malicious software groups.
At the time, Mozilla said the Send service shutdown was temporary and promised to find a way to curb its malicious features. A few weeks later, things changed after Mozilla's management fired more than 250 employees in an effort to refocus its business on commercial products.
The same reasons apply to Firefox Notes. It started as a way to store and synchronize encrypted notes between Firefox browsers.
"At the end of October, we will shut down the Android Notes app and sync service," a Mozilla spokesman said today.
"The Firefox Notes browser extension for desktops will remain available for existing installations and will include the option to export all notes, but will no longer be developed by Mozilla and will no longer be installed."
