At the time, Mozilla said that Send's shutdown was temporary and promised to find a way to curb the service's abuse in malware operations. But weeks later, things changed after Mozilla leadership laid off more than 250 employees as part of an effort to re-focus its business on commercial products.
The same reasons are also valid for Firefox Notes. Launched as a way to save and sync encrypted notes between Firefox browsers, the service was available as an Android app and browser extension.
"In late October we will decommission the Android Notes app and syncing service," a Mozilla spokesperson said today.
"The Firefox Notes desktop browser extension will remain available for existing installs and we will include an option to export all notes, however it will no longer be maintained by Mozilla and will no longer be installable."
