Details

Provide a cloud-based Reading List, attached to Fx Accounts, that is accessible by Firefox products (Android, iOS, desktop, FxOS, etc).

The disparate Firefox product experiences will be responsible for ensuring contents of the Reading List can be viewed on their respective platform, as well as the ability to add to the Reading List.

The intent is to create product value in having one list that any instance of Firefox can access based on the user's preference at any moment in time.
Bug 857990 is about saving scroll position across devices, and includes some further discussion about data we'd need to support some use cases.

:kar, to define the service API, we need more information about the desired product UX for Reading List, both MVP and future. Where can I find this? Bug 917884?

Chris - I don't think we have recent workflows here, but I'll add to the to-do between Product and UX to sort out ASAP.

Deb will take product lead from our side.
Karen or Deb, can you please update this bug when the v1 requirements are closer to being locked in?
Adding a NI for Deb so she doesn't lose site of this amongst all of the other bugmail!

This will be a praiseworthy.  Usually reading lists disappear on uninstallation

This isn't going to happen. Instead, we're going to migrate reading list items to bookmarks, and users can sync them through bookmark sync.

Brilliant! Please any clue or link that'd allow us to follow on that much needed feature?
