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.

With Windows 11 + chronic Firefox updates and additions, browsing is becoming a resource-gobbling nightmare.  Can't Firefox issue a Firefox Lite browser?

@Gustav Precisely!

And now as described by ikjadoon there seems to be some features lacking in the Firefox implementation compared to the plugin for other browsers.

So I think there is another point in favor of removing Pocket from Firefox and establishing it as a plug-in that is included in the base installation.

I keep checking in on any movement here from Firefox. Nothing yet and that's quite unfortunate. 

Perhaps I'll check in again in 2025 (genuinely) as that seems to be the pace of work here by Mozilla.

Gustav keeps coming back on-topic, which is good.  I support his viewpoint and urge others to do the same.  Make Pocket optional, please!

Pocket and Sync. Would be great of both could return to only being addons which AFAIK they initally  started out as anyways.

A thinner client would be lovely.
