    Another year wasted on something nobody was waiting for.

    I'm happy to say goodbye to Hello! Browsers should be browsers, not IM clients, web servers or anything else. If Mozilla had ignored junk like Hello, maybe we'd have Electrolysis/e10s by now...

    I removed the smiley face and never bothered to even find out exactly what it was for. LOL

    Firefox said "Hello", but i said "bye" and disabled it :D
    I think that was my first action, and i even don't wanted to know what "Hello" is.
    Exactly

    same here, i use other messengers. its a set and forget.
    a true effort for mozilla to investigate in a secure messenger but truly a waste of time to implement it in firefox. firefox got bloated in another way. its more the way lurching through features. IMO Hello is still available as an extension.

    Stable release of Firefox 49 will be out on September 13th. http://www.ghacks.net/2016/09/09/mozilla-postpones-firefox-49-release/

    Also they will fix some serious bugs as well.
    "The two blocker bugs in question address issues when loading Giphly embeds on Twitter, and slow script / unresponsive script dialogs in Firefox when resuming Firefox."
