Mozilla decided to remove one of the major new features of Firefox 2.0 in order to ensure that the update meets the Q3 2006 release date.
"Places," a complete rewrite of the browser's bookmarking system, will no longer be included in the release.

While Places had made it into the first public alpha release of Firefox 2.0, codenamed "Bon Echo," it had been pulled previously. In announcing the decision, Mozilla's director of engineering Mike Schroepfer said the company wanted to ensure a quality release.
