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...

Have you asked anyone why they are calling it that?? You don't just go around muddling words up for no reason :wacko: (unless you have some medical condition)

Or you were just at your local pub. Would being drunk be considered "medical"? ;)

I've heard it quite a bit.  Not as much as I used to, but always annoying...

Let's see, I've heard people call

 

Novell: Novel/Noh-vohwl/

 

Internet explorer: Internet Exploder (they were serious, and not making a joke)

Boolean as Booleen

 

Tuple can be pronounced as too-pole or tuh-pole (but it gets annoying when people always correct each other saying there way is correct)

 

BIOS I've heard people pronounce this as bi-asz or bi-aws it is pronounced BI-oh-s

 

And most frequently 

OSX (pronounced OS 10 for those who don't know their Roman Numerals) as OSx (ohes-ex)

Most users I know that aren't too good with computers actually call it Mozilla because that's the first word in the shortcut. Pronunciation does vary a bit though.

Honestly? I've not heard it called foxfire, but my knowledge if tech and <people in the tech know how> is regretfully, limited
