A less complex product will have less bugs.

The core of Firefox should only be the needed functionality to browse the web.

Additions that are built in like Pocket add additional code.

I my idea is that Firefox should split Pocket out from the Firefox executable and have it as an pre-installed extension which can be disabled by users or even removed if they do not want to have have it in their installation.


Making moves


The point I was trying to make when creating this suggestion is that Mozilla adds things to Firefox that a small sub-group of users actually use.

This added code creates complexity. Regardless of how small impact (it can never be 0) it has it gets installed for all users since it is included in the core product.

That there seems to be some sponsor agreement as far as I have been able to understand gives me zero hope that Mozilla will actually move Pocket into a pre-installed plugin (that can be uninstalled by the user if they wish).

I hope that more people vote for this suggestion, but after 2+ years I think that Mozilla has parked the suggestion in "In review" because they don't have the courage to that "if we do this we will lose sponsor money and therefore will not implement".

I mean - if there was any progress made on this they would have had so much time to update us in this thread.

I am surprised people dont even want Sync though. Yea, I pretty sure like 5 people actually use Pocket, but really, nobody here uses the Sync feature?

I use Sync all the time.  I'll never use Pocket.
