How much litterate are they about computer security though? Because there are people who are so dumb about computers (no offense to them, everyone gotta start somewhere and technology isn't everyone's cup of tea) that they'll click any link in their e-mail or they'll go anywhere on the Internet without bothering to make sure if it might be an unsafe site. I know myself that back in 2008-09 every month or two I had to help my bro get rid of viruses because he was using IE6 to go online and did not want to switch.

Oh, no none of that. My dad's pretty tech-savvy and my mom uses linux and FF16. Also, my dad has always been telling us not to click links in emails. We all have adblock. I really don't know where any viruses could have crept in.

Final Fantasy came first. It earned it. 1987 vs Netscape's 1994, and the firefox name didn't even come around until 2004.

Is Final Fantasy and other stuff with the FF acronym the reason why Firefox kinda breaks the rules regarding acronyms? Normally people use the first letter of each syllabs or each word, like Firefox, although I did see other things where rules were broken too, such as using the first entire syllab of the first word and the last syllab of the second word so it kinda creates something nice to pronounce.

The fact that most acronyms goes with the first letter of each syllab is probably why most people say FF instead of Fx :P
In case you are wondering where I went, I left Omni back in 2015 to form CodeWalrus due to various reasons explained back then, but I stopped calc dev in 2016 and am now mostly active on the CW Discord server at https://discord.gg/cuZcfcF

If Firefox wanted to follow the first letter of each word rule the abbreviation would be F. Firefox is one word :P
