SAN JOSE, California (AP) - A major backer of same-sex marriage bans is calling for a boycott of the Firefox web browser after the politically charged resignation of Mozilla CEO Brendan Eich.

Eich served as CEO of Mozilla, which created Firefox, for only a few days because of a flurry of online outrage over his $1,000 contribution supporting California's now overturned anti-gay marriage law in 2008.

The National Organization for Marriage, which backed the law, on Friday urged consumers to remove the Firefox web browser from their computers as a sign of protest.

Eich's abrupt departure has stirred the debate about the fairness of forcing out a highly qualified technology executive over his personal views
