(Re-) enable a good ssb feature

Making moves

The ssb.enable toggle was removed a few months ago because "user research" showed that nobody wanted it.

Well, I want it. Its absence has brought me near the tipping point of abandoning firefox in favour of Edge.

Why: I have been using the Edge webapp feature for some time, as this is the only way to bypass MSFT inability to support multiple Teams sites in their PC app.

This week I started using Todoist, and since the ssb feature was gone from Firefox I had to use Edge. Now every time I click a link in Todoist, it opens in Edge, which I don't want.

By not having ssb.enable, Firefox falls off the shelf as the default browser, since a webapp that is actually an Edge container will open new links in Edge.

The easiest fix for this is to abandon Firefox and give in to Edge. Is that really what you want?


Making moves

PLEASE add this feature again!!! This is really a thing which makes firefox an outdated browser some time SOON! Firefox is mostly used by people which care for advanced internet stuff... So also for SSB!
And come on: you never really marketed the SSB capability, so this "user research" is a joke, unless some (un-)representative group got to the testing.

Making moves

How can we get more traction on this? SSB, especially for PWA is more and more mandatory for users.


I think the main reason was not enough usage of SSB itself, but I think this is because the UI/UX was just bad. We need something that is more present and tells a user "This is also available as a secure single app, Learn more...". iOS does something similar with websites that have apps, they let the "Show in app store" banner appear on the top.
