Dear Icecat team,

I wonder what your plans are regarding the new sync feature of mozilla
firefox, which will have impact from firefox 29 onwards (discussion is
e.g. here[1]).

I feel that this “feature” severely limits the freedom of the user; One
seems to be forced to mozillas services, they even state that they have
not much intention to allow custom servers:

> * In general, Custom Server support for FxA Sync in Fx29 be somewhere
>   between a "non-goal" and "best effort"
> * If you're already connected to Sync, then in Fx29, your set up
>   should continue to work.
> * Otherwise, it is subject to other above restrictions for Legacy
>   Sync users.
> * Custom servers should in theory be possible with FxA Sync, but with
>   a different architecture (Token server + Sync 1.5).
(from [2])

Do you intend to take that feature as is, disable sync completely or
will you keep the old sync functionality alive?
