Firefox pledges support to Bears fans using logo to call for John Fox’s firing

Disgruntled Chicago Bears fans in recent weeks have come up with a novel way to call for the firing of beleaguered head coach John Fox: Using the Firefox logo.

First, the browser’s logo primarily was being used for snarky social media missives, to amusing effect. But last Sunday, a Bears fan took it to another level by showing up at Lincoln Financial Field for the team’s eventual loss to the Philadelphia Eagles with a sign emblazoned with the Firefox logo.

Now, in savvy promotional move, Firefox has pledged to help out any Bears fan who wants to use its logo to troll the Bears and call for Fox’s ouster.

“We empathize with Bears fans who are frustrated with their team,” Firefox CMO Jascha Kaykas-Wolff told 670 The Score, via Shutdown Corner. “Being unsatisfied with the internal workings of something you care about? We’ve been there. To release Firefox Quantum, our fastest browser ever, we had to bear down and replace many out-of-date and under-performing components. While it was at times difficult, we managed to soldier on, put more weight on our big shoulders, and as a result shipped an incredible product that sparked a huge increase in interest and downloads.

“We’re not here to start any trouble, but unfortunately, the logo used in the stands in Philadelphia was out of date. If any Firefox fans are planning on carrying a Firefox Logo to an upcoming sporting event and sitting in a highly visible location in the stadium, please send us a note on Twitter and we’ll do our best to get you on-brand.”

Expect countless Bears fans to take Firefox up on the offer.
