Yes, exactly the same thing here! I immediately expected Notes to be domain or even website synced.
Why would I want my to-do list in my internet browser? Confuses the mind’s process in gathering and producing information.
The Internet browser was invented as a tool to display information from the Net to the End-User. Thus from the user’s point of view, a browser is to gather information. Even though the browser evolved into not only a tool to be informed but also to MANAGE information (like booking a hotel, buying a product, or work together on a joint project,etc., eCommerce arised, etc. etc.) (and this is the process where the user has to give personal information, in order to manage user-related information, hence, Firefox and the whole quest for user-privacy).
So what adds NOTES to the browser AS IT CURRENTLY IS presented? It’s like the game Snake on a cellphone! It has nothing to do with its main function, but that the game was at least great fun, which I can’t say for a notepad on the left of my screen in my browser window. Staring at me as a blank field, unrelated to the process I am going through while browsing the web. (or soon it would become a notepad full of scribbles unable to be managed properly).
However, if you link NOTES to it’s particular domain/URL where you’ve opened a note, then you have a “Helper” in gathering/managing information from certain sites which then at later point are handy to review, as this helps the user to pick up where he or she left. Then, at the point where the user wants to actually produce information (if ever) it is then generally done on either a separate program (Word, Notepad, Excel, etc.) OR is done on a specific, note-related, website (like booking a hotel and you had a few interesting picks you want to go over, but don’t want the website know your favorites and click the little heart, so rather type 'm up on your browser-webpage related SUPER-NOTES.
Return to the core theme of internet browsing (which is to jump from website to website, so Notes has to be website related, or it will become a flaw. In line with Firefox’s moral, Notes can contribute to the privacy of Firefox its users by separately storing information which otherwise we might enter into the website.
