We don't use any of mentioned APIs that are about to be removed. We use 
Gecko more internal APIs. They are unfrozen for a while now and it's not 
really a news that Mozilla developers don't care much about embedders 
when making product direction decisions. It's definitely not a good for 
us, but it's nothing new, so I wouldn't worry too much (at lest not yet).
