Hi

In 2020, we became aware that the developer of the FVD add-on had begun intercepting search queries that were being sent to a third-party search provider, in clear violation of the Mozilla Add-ons Policies. After a repeated violation we again explicitly told them under which circumstances this type of data collection is not acceptable. At the time, the developer disabled the feature, and we continued to host FVD Speed Dial.

Recently we have become aware that the developer has re-enabled the offending functionality, which remains in violation of AMO policy. In light of these repeated offenses, we have blocked this addon. While we regret the impact that this has had on some of our users, we believe that our commitments to user safety and the importance of user trust in Firefox and its surrounding ecosystem have obligated us to take this action, and we stand by this decision.

You can stand by your decisions all you like. This does NOT help me or the thousands of other users of this add on!. Why can you not reactivate it for, say, 24 hours and give us all time to back up???

Mozilla could easily have give users fair warning so that we could back up our speed dial pages and transition them over to (yet another) bookmark platform. I relied very heavily on my curated speed dials to navigate me quickly between work, university and other sites. That has now all gone and without ANY notice. Thanks for nothing.
