Right. But that's a good task for Mozilla and not us.

It's your task. You are making privacy-preserving browser, not Mozilla. If you are going to upgrade the browser with Mozilla code, you will have to create missing APIs you need.

Replying to cypherpunks:

Mozilla uplifts Tor Browser patches to upstream Firefox, so that statement is not true.

If you are going to upgrade the browser with Mozilla code, you will have to create missing APIs you need.

Ok, then they (Tor Browser developers) will ask Mozilla to add those missing APIs, and not TB devs themselves, right?
