    I don't understand some of the reactions here. Mozilla is working to make Firefox faster, safer and more stable. When e10s is fully implemented with Sandbox restrictions it will be comparable to Chrome; tabs will run as individual, isolated processes. I'm already running Firefox 51 with multi-process enabled; performance is better and I've only lost one extension due to incompatibility. Mozilla is giving add-ons developers plenty of advanced notice so they have time to make their add-ons compatible.

    Speaking for myself, I have installed the add-ons that make Firefox the browser I want it to be. Some of my add-ons are no longer being updated so they're not going to run on future builds of Firefox. For now I still use Firefox. It's just not my daily browsers and that's only because I can't fully customize it to my liking. Without my favorite add-ons Firefox will become just another browser and there will be no reason for me to use it.

    I understand. I also use Firefox because it can be customized to a high degree. It stinks when add-ons are abandoned, but I wouldn't want the browser to stand still. Hopefully many of the old add-ons will be ported and new ones will be created to fill the gaps. Time will tell, but for the moment Firefox even with e10s enabled can still be customized more than Chrome, IE and Edge.

    I already use Chrome as my 2nd most used browser, and Edge is my 1st one of choice(and also Polarity (Powered by both Chromium and Trident)for security/privacy(user scripts) when needed, and it can be themed easily from hand, without downloading anything if you want, I have two themes published it their "store").
    So why will I need Firefox in the future if it wants to be like Chrome/Chromium?

    That's a personal choice, but all browsers need to continue to implement the latest technology to enhance security and performance.

    Hopefully, my eye candy stays, those are the only add-ons I think will have compatibility problem, other than the already defunct Logitech Smooth Scrolling

    I've been reading the forums on Mozillazine on this one and tbh no one seems to have a clue what will happen.
    Personally I'll continue to update FF and see what the results are. As I posted earlier I only use three extensions and the only one I'd really miss is uBlock Origin (which I disable on tenforums).
    I think my problem is that since I've used FF since version 3 I can't imagine using another browser, in the past I've given IE, Opera, Chrome and Edge a fair go but I don't feel at home with any of them.
    Guess I'm just an old stick in the mud

    Make that 2 old sticks in the mud (or an older stick in the mud in my case)

    Porting thousands of add-ons into web extensions in gonna be a lengthy and tedious pita, and that's if every developer wants to comply, and thats if Mozilla, (oops Moz://a) excepts what they have to offer.

    My understanding is that Chrome extensions will be compatible with the new FF. You will find that a lot of the current FF extensions have already been ported to Chrome so most of the development has already been done where this is possible.
