The funny thing is a very large portion of my customers for some reason always call Firefox, Foxfire ... have you ever heard anyone call it Foxfire?

I've genuinely not spoken to anybody about Firefox for at least a few years now.. These days the browser that comes up in general is Chrome.

Nope, never heard anyone call it foxfire. The only thing called foxfire I've heard of is when old timers are describing the natural will-o'-the-wisp phenomena.

LOL, you're silly. Actually foxfire (e.g. will-o'-the-wisps) are pretty interesting and from what I've heard, they're seen very, very nearby here on very overcast nights. Perhaps, just perhaps, if I go searching for them the Firefox fox will show itself to me! :o

 

... actually I wish this Firefox would show itself to me, hahahaha...
