  1. Recode XUL

    Rather than having this new API which looks dangerous, maybe try recoding XUL so that it has all the same functionality as before, but with the new code that makes it compatible with other browsers.

    That way, it's still really easy to port to other browsers, but it gives Firefox a big advantage by offering many more features.

    • Make sure extensions lose non of their functionality

      Make sure Classic Theme Restorer, NoScript, Downloads Window and Click to Play per Element lose none of their functionality.

        Thanks for this feedback, but having a big list of add-ons in one suggestion is hard for us to break down into prioritizable pieces. Let’s try opening one idea per add-on, and then people could vote on each individually and discuss specific implementation needs.

          Closing this since it’s not an actionable suggestion (I wish uservoice would let me just mark things as closed rather than declined, your vote of support is graciously accepted!)
