  1. Make up your mind. In one breath you slam ff because the legacy plugins are probably causing issues and making people leave. In the next you claim not keeping the legacy plugins will prevent people from using ff.

    Are you saying you want a nice transition? My suspicion is that would be seen as too costly or two slow.

    1. I think these are two separate issues. The first issue is the performance hit you take when using Firefox with add-ons and that includes any add-ons, not just legacy. The second issue is more anecdotal, which I have run into people that are not only upset about Firefox dropping legacy add-on support but the overall direction that Firefox is taking in certain instances by removing various settings including from the about:config area.

      I don’t use Firefox for my daily browser but even when I do, I do not have any add-ons that I am overly concerned about losing. I do notice the performance hit you take when using add-ons which is a shame because they make things so much easier but again, for me personally, losing legacy add-ons is a non-isssue because I just end up searching for new add-ons if the one I am using no longer works.

      I believe I said in the episode that in some ways Firefox is doing great things but in other ways, they seem to be making decisions that could possibly push people away to other browsers.

      I don’t have the perfect answer for this situation but I guess we will have to see how it plays out.

      Thanks for watching and commenting
