    LOL. Was he ever asked?

    Mozilla didn't do their diligence BEFORE they hired him. THAT was the time to vet your candidate. Disagree with me all you want, there's a reason this man was never fired - it would have been a very expensive mistake for Mozilla.

    It already was, but it would have been even more so.

    Sometimes, in situations like this, bad things happen, there is no sense in it, and everyone is worse off. This is one such situation.

    He wouldn't have willfully stepped down unless he was compensated for it.

    He'll find another job - clearly he was qualified enough to get the Mozilla job, and there are plenty of conservatives out there who will be behind him. Get a job with Chick Fillet or whatever that chain is (I refrain from fast food.) Get a job at Hobby Lobby.

There are cases where the lines between personal behavior vs. institution's desired image can get really blurry. This is not one of them.
    Did Eich run a company in such a way where his personal views affected and effected the daily business of Mozilla? No, in fact he's been part of the Mozilla project since it's start and the board knew about this donation going back to 2008 . So reality is their product is FREE so they make absolutely no money from what consumers and rather they rely on income from the likes of Google who account for 85% of their revenue. But Mozilla gotta bullied into this position.

    I'm sure they asked if he had or was engaged in any activities that were counter to the company's image and he told them it was all good.

    He's going to be radioactive for a good chunk of the year, at least with tech companies with high brand recognition.

    Carry on.
    Google supports Mozilla with funding. So back to IE?

    Firing him would cost the same. Either way, his removal is legit. He defrauded them.
