Well, word it how you like, but there needs to be more going on in a Builds forum other than an endless list of 'The Official (insert date) builds are not yet out' threads. i.e. there needs to be discussion threads.

We have big changes coming up and, at the moment, those subjects fall under the remit of the Firefox Builds forum and not the Firefox General forum. So, people are going to need at least one thread on those subjects here, even if there's not much to say at this precise moment.

I agree Frank. I was just trying to add a little levity to the forum.

Good news about Session Manager WE. Luckily, two APIs that Session Manager WebExtension needs has been approved so Session Manager WebExtension will be possible but likely not in 2017.
https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=1378647
https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=1378651

After these bugs land (and it will take a while because they are Priority 5), Session Manager WebExtension will be able to:
save and restore tab history between sessions (without hacks!)
save and restore list of all opened tabs
restore list of tabs in unloaded state (without hacks!)
restore addon-related data like tab trees using Storage API

Not bad. I've sent Morac an email with all needed APIs, I hope he read it.
I am an idiot. Sorry for my poor English.

i just think it'll drive more users to Chrome or maybe other browsers while the WE API becomes stable
