    FF - Classic Theme Restorer may be dead by the end of 2017


    It looks like Mozilla have resumed their quest to make Firefox totally irrelevant.
    Mozilla announced a couple of days ago that it plans to make Firefox support only WebExtensions add-ons by the end of 2017.

    While that seems far far away right now, it is almost certain that things won't be ready by then. What I mean by that is that WebExtensions capabilities won't match those of Firefox's current system.

    While popular add-ons like NoScript will likely be ported over thanks to Mozilla working with developers actively on implementing missing API features, the same cannot be said for other add-ons.

    Soon there won't be even a single usable browser left.
    The latest Pale Moon (27) is horrible on my PC (takes at least 10 seconds to load).
    God only know how long it would take if you tried to run it from a HDD.

    Seems like Google has "won the Internet" and everyone will be forced to use the abomination that is Chrome.

    It took no more than 2 seconds (HDD) for Pale Moon (27) to start. It is still a work in progress, limping along because of the lack of prioritized support from the addon community. Mozilla and Firefox with the larger user base get first dibs.

    We'll just have to move the goalposts on Google's inevitable browser conquest.

    It turns out that add-on compatibility issues caused the long start up time.

    My PM now starts in ~2 seconds.
