File System Access API

Is Firefox will support this feature ? Or at which version will support ? [https://developer.mozilla.org/en-US/docs/Web/API/File_System_Access_API File System Access API]

Chosen solution

Mozilla considers this API harmful and not going to implement it in its current state.

There's a subset of this API we're quite enthusiastic about (in particular providing a read/write API for files and directories as alternative storage endpoint), but it is wrapped together with aspects for which we do not think meaningful end user consent is possible to obtain (in particular cross-site access to the end user's local file system). Overall we consider this harmful therefore, but Mozilla could be supportive of parts, provided this were segmented better.
