Can I delete the entire folder "browser features" in mozilla firefox?
Is that dangerous? :-k

you can do that, but it is not recommended. i have left AUS behind, but eg "activity-stream" is needed for the new tab tiles, "screenshots" for screen shots, "formautofill" as self explaining, "getpocket" ofc pocket, "onboarding" i forgot, maybe introducing quantum, "followonsearch" to improve search, "shield-recipe-client" for security. for regular users i would recommend to leave it untouched as long the impacts are not clear. anyhow a reinstallation may solve trouble when you have deleted them. there are other options to opt-out such features in prefs. (eg ghacks user.js -> google)
