History says otherwise.

Looking at what that extension does, I would say that an ordinary content web extension could already be made to do that.

I think people using Firefox will have to accept that even their content hitting extensions that are prime for conversion (in the main, the chrome(UI) ones will not exist) will likely be different in the future.

In other words, 'conversion' does not equal identical, but roughly doing fairly similar to what it did before.

Tree Style Tab WebExtension has big problems with session restore: order of tabs and tree structure are messed up after restoring saved session. More info here:

mozilla drive experiments which are not opt-in, but opt-out, there is a thread about in this forum, it now happend three times and cliqz is only one of it. even for me this BS happend in a fresh (testing) profile (firefox 56).


It may be that Mozilla does that for a small percentage of users. AAUI this experiment is only for German users and rolled out to a small percentage of the user base in that country. Unlucky you. :cry:

This bloat that you are so concerned about? Have you actually looked before you cried? I have four 'Firefox' extension and they are about 60KB. Really? Bloat?

How much bloat do your many extensions add?

WTFrak are you babbling on about "bloat "(x 3) for ?
I don't give a damn about the size of the files.
As usual you completely miss the point: it's the NUMBER of 'extensions' or whatever the **** they are.
I'm now up to eleven with 56, ten with 57.

I tried the browser a while back, seemed like the results were very German centric.
What's to prevent them displaying paid links first, how would one know if the 'recommended' BMW dealer wasn't a client?

Well then I would delete them or remove them!!! Instead of standing around with my thumb in my ... and complaining. Do something about it.

BTW. Just how does the number of these few extensions compare to the number of extensions that you installed?

Means? Just how many 'bouncing clowns' do you need on your screen? :-)

Little things mean a lot, Context Search is the one I need.......Hopefully Ben doesn't come across road blocks when 57 is released.
