Firefox to remove UI dark pattern from Screenshot tool after months of complaints

The issue is that the Save button doesn't save the screenshot to the PC, as most users would naturally expect, but uploads the image to a Mozilla server.

This is both a privacy violation, as some users don't appreciate being tricked into uploading sensitive images saved on remote servers, but also an incovenience as users would still have to download the image locally, but in multiple steps afterward.

You have to admit that Mozilla is working as best as it can to totally ruin what is left from the userbase of Firefox. In the past years it has removed features the users liked, added features users don't like while generally trying hard to be a clone of Chrome.
