There are no plans whatsoever to build a Fennec client from UXP or any other app for that matter that targets Android. Any potential client would also only be interesting for users if it was a client that could sync in a Weave fashion, which is currently also non-existent in the /mobile client in the tree as it was ripped out in favor of FxA.

Doing this will allow us to greatly simplify code throughout the tree; any future Android client should be built on native Android engines for the moving target of Google "Standards" anyway to be useful, and would best be built from the ground up, and be a native Android developed app.

  • Part 1: Remove Fennec. (Sorry little guy, but you have to find your own home.)
    • 1a: Remove mobile/
    • 1b: Remove MOZ_FENNEC
    • 1c: Remove references and cases of mobile/android in the build system
  • Remove Android only libs
  • Remove Android support in our renderer/widgets
  • Remove Android support in our layout engine
  • Remove Android support in XPCOM
  • Remove Android support in the rest of our tree
  • Remove Android support in the build system
