Dropping webextensions doesn't seem to help in any way. Not dropping what makes current extensions possible or provide a feature parity to extensions developer before removing the previous engine would help.

If the XUL addons die, I will just jump to Vivaldi. (actually I have started to use Vivaldi this week. Preparing to say goodbye to my 13 year friend Firefox.
If you're looking for a speedy alternative browser, I'd recommend Pale Moon; it's a Firefox fork that works like Firefox from the old days. It's fast and supports most of the Firefox extensions. Most importantly, it is not dropping XUL or XPCOM and listens to its users.
And how come the single most privacy and browser fingerprinting protecting add-on developer
has dropped out of the network?
How come this add on isn't a default of firefox.
Firefox should protect its powerusers. Fuck Hello &Pocket
Wow, firefox is losing its most important audience, those who push things forward,
those who use their brains.
It seems that, those at mozilla have lost their heads to a hungry dinosaur.
Why follow them now?
I'm giving up on Firefox and now...
i'm just looking for a fast, private browser with the ability for tab groupings.
Current add-ons i'm using are:
uBlock Origin, uMatrix, and Tab Groups Helper.
Please let me know
Where is the downvote button?
Type c 100
Echo "xul cumsluts"
Why remove xul & xpcom? Why not just add your webextensions and leave xpcom alone? Stupid new egotistical management. Unless you're Steve Jobs, you will just tank Firefox.
It's an open source project. If you want to prove something, go start your own shit. Don't mess with Firefox.
I wrote some extensions for Chrome, I wrote some extensions for Firefox. And what I have to say: if you are a good coder, it doesn't matter, what API you need to use for a different platforms. If you are a shitty-coder, noone will helps you. Excuse me, but why Google (or Opera, or IE - whatever) didn't rebuilt their API to be looks like a Firefox? Or Mozilla wants to be a Google slut? If so - it's a pity.
alert ("Hello, ChromoFox!");
Drop webextensions +1024. The entire project is a huge defect !
What's horrible is that I have to keep adding new addons to fix my already perfect browser. I have to add firefox classic theme restorer, I have to add a freaking add-on for about:blank :/
Please dont drop
Opera is already dead. We don't need another Chrome simulator 2016. We already have 4: Chrome, Opera, Vivaldi, and soon Edge.

No addons, no firefox
Stop messing about with it, since V4 I`ve been battling to keep it working while removing and disabling things too.
Do not want a bloated ChromeFox
:( since now it'll work just like a chromium browser like opera so might as well change your browser name to:
a - chromefox
b - chromiumfox
c - firechrome
d - firechromium
e - googlefox
f - firegoogle
Please don't drop it
