    Mozilla plans to change the backend for the storage.local API to indexedDB from JSON to improve performance in Firefox 63. The migration happens in the background and Firefox users who run Firefox 63 should not notice any issues afterward.

    Problems may arise however if users downgrade Firefox to an earlier version or switch to a channel that is not yet at Firefox 63 or newer.

    The change will land in Firefox Nightly first and if users load the Beta or Stable version of Firefox with the Nightly profile, they may run into data regression issues with extensions installed in the browser.

    Mozilla revealed the change on the organization's Add-ons blog that it uses to inform developers of extensions for Firefox about upcoming changes and new features.
