      Sorry for a late reply. It is not decided yet, and is a work in progress.

    I agree, it would be great if we could find out when FF will support all of the UI elements.

    Are there any that are planned not to be implemented?

      To my knowledge I don’t know any that aren’t planned, but there’s no exact roadmap and they are constantly being evaluated.

    It’s been a year … and Firefox 14 still does not support even the most basic input types (date anyone?), leaving us with suboptimal Javascript hell…
