Read The Mozilla manifesto
Nowhere does it say anything about

making a simple, secure, extensible browser

In fact, it doesn't even say anything about a browser. Their mission is to promote openness, innovation & opportunity on the Web. Whether they are making any progress with that is up for debate, but it's silly to complain about the browser every time you see the word "Mozilla". Mozilla the organization is bigger than Firefox.

USSR suffered pretty bad casualties, but in the end it gained land - Finland lost 11% of its territory. Interestingly, Finnish concessions and territorial losses exceeded those demanded by the Soviets pre-war https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/...
And there were a lot of consequences for the Soviet army - obviously, lot of problems were discovered and addressed in the following years just before the German invasion.

Giving him Crimea without any protest

Crimea is not for Trump to give. He may or may not agree to how it was *acquired* by Russia, but he can't *give* it.
As for Finland, how could Putin possibly benefit from taking over it? You may call him evil and aggressive, but he's not irrational and I just don't see any benefit for Russia/Putin in going after a country whose population clearly doesn't want to be part of Russia. The same applies to the Baltic states - there is nothing to gain. No economic benefits, no political benefits - only major PITA.
Crimea is totally different - most Crimeans are Russian and very patriotic about it, and it was always like that, even pre-2014.
