Your title is rather misleading.
Firefox dropped one feature, that's all.
This feature may be a need by some users. Or may be not.
The future will tell if it was a good move or not.

I just discovered what it is about. If you like privacy and security, I'm not sure that those web apps are good for that. Either each of them is kind of sandboxed and can't look around so much or they may be able to do things not controlled anymore by the browser. Moreover, if extensions are not compatible with those things, it defeats the point of the extensions or any customization applied to your browser.
