Bookmarks vanish when updating firefox
Web Extensions in plain old English are very similar to Google Chrome extensions, only that the Firefox version supports more powerful add-ons than Google Chrome does once Mozilla reaches feature parity with Chrome.Note that "plans" means that Mozilla may postpone the cut.Legacy add-ons are all add-ons that are not Web Extensions. Others are still in the development phase, and some won't port their add-ons for reasons such as that Web Extensions don't support the functionality of the add-on, or of time commitments.It is difficult to assess the situation right now, as Web Extensions functionality is still being worked on.We also refreshed form handling in Firefox, adding a brand new autofill feature and implementing built-in widgets for elements.Lastly, Firefox’s preferences were completely redesigned and are now searchable.Development may not be ready when Firefox 57 is going to be released -- on November 14, 2017 if the schedule holds -- or there may be other things that forces Mozilla to postpone the change.
