Firefox and popular Dropshipping addons

I am curious as to why Mozilla/Firefox doesn't seem interested in matching Chrome for addons for popular dropshipping apps such as CJDropshipping, DSers and AutoDS. These are well catered for in Chrome and allow easy import of products into stores such as Shopify. They save a lot of time for already busy store owners and staff yet Firefox loyalists are forced to switch over and use Chrome to make life easier and save time. For someone who has been using Firefox across both Linux and Windows since it's 2004 launch, it is galling and almost physically debillitating to have to resort to this each time. If I were any good at coding I would surely fix this serious shortcomming.

Please Mozilla look to this and provide us with better options.

Hi

Add-ons for Firefox are largely made by independent developers and not Mozilla. It is down to those developers to make their add-ons available for Firefox and we have plenty of material and support to help them to do this.

Yes the vast majority of Extension hosted on addons.mozilla.org are made by a third-party developer(s) or company and not by Mozilla. A Mozilla authored extension will say will say by Mozilla or by Mozilla Firefox https://addons.mozilla.org/firefox/user/4757633/ as the author. An example is https://addons.mozilla.org/firefox/addon/firefox-translations/ which is now integrated into Firefox.

For someone who has been using Firefox across both Linux and Windows since it's 2004 launch,

The web browser we know as Firefox was not launched in Nov 2004 at version 1.0 as many think. It first started out as Phoenix 0.1 in September 23, 2002. It was then renamed as Firebird for 0.6, 0.7 Release and then as Firefox starting at 0.8 Release on February 9, 2004. There was nothing special about 1.0 over say the 0.9.3 Release as the 1.0 just appears to be more official because numbers. In fact the Fx1.0 Release had the codename of Phoenix.
