Firefox referral is no longer showing in my site. It's really sad hundred bucks everyday income has gone. I hope there'll be other ways to monetize firefox download.

Firefox has gained enough market/mind share now that I would think they no longer need to pay to spread the word.

It is sad. I used to get many of my visitors to switch to Firefox and I made either .10, .50 or even $1.00 per referral.

I just finished removing the code on my pages the other day in anticipation for this week. I replace it with the new Google Search code, but I am getting poor results.

Oh well, it was good while it lasted.

After 45,490 Google Pack/Firefox referrals my AdSense account is going to be a dull place at the end of each month... and although I've switched to "Spread Firefox" I still have no idea what "points" are good for... I suspect I won't be able to use them to make car payments.

There are some applications that doesn't work with ie but works fine with firefox. So there you recommend firefox.
