User Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; Ubuntu; Linux x86_64; rv:52.0) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/52.0 Build ID: 20170303012758 Steps to reproduce: Official builds of Fennec always include proprietary Google Play Services jars. There are a number of projects like Orfox, IceCat, F-Droid and more that are working on Fennec builds without any proprietary libraries. There are also a number of other free software projects like Whisper Systems Signal that include play-services-gcm. This is becoming such a problem that people are implementing their own version of the GCM library so that the apps can be all open source. Expected results: A better solution would be for Google to open source their GCM jars. I'm talking about only the jars that are distributed as part of the google_m2repository distributed as part of Android Studio. This jar is 32k, so a pretty small bit of code. I talked with some reasonably high up Android people and they thought this was a reasonable request. I've started asking Google for this, but Mozilla's voice here would carry a lot more weight.
Mozilla cannot force Google to open source Google Play Services. We would welcome them doing so. This is not something that is a bug to fix in Firefox for Android, closing.

> This is not something that is a bug to fix in Firefox for Android For me it's a blocker. I've stopped using Firefox for Android after Mozilla added proprietary code into it.
