Suffice to say that ad networks are a pain. Turn off advertisements and this particular problem should go away entirely.

Yup, sucks to be a niche site so poor you must accept ads. But this move won't affect the greater Internet since ads are so rare out there; so Moz will totally win with this move. Yup, and those few ads still out on the Internet are of course delivered by companies happy to pony up for the CPU power to serve their annoying animated gifs (and nasty script bits.. i.e. active content) over safe https links. Because Firefox is the dominant player on the Internet and all. [/snarky]

Anyone care to get a pool going on the following two lines:

1. How many points of market share Firefox drops in the next three months.

2. How many months before the default choice is changed to one more amendable to the needs of the commercial nature of today's Internet?

If you think that most of the Internet is ad-free, you are seeing a very different Internet than I am (even vendor sites have vendor ads on them)

That was clearly sarcastic and you seem to have missed that.

Blocking uncrypted content from encrypted pages... WIN!

I don't see why Firefox's market share would drop at all. This change would result in advertisements disappearing... if anything this should encourage people to shift right? (The posted complaint was about Internet Explorer 8, after all.)
