I use Prey to protect my Laptops that travel with me when I'm on the road doing
Security related Presentations for Avast.
I recently needed to do a clean install of Windows 10 version 1607.
It didn't take long for prey to let me know my device wasn't communicating with their service any more.
It didn't take me long to realize that the software that had already helped me once in recovering a laptop
needed to be re-installed.  Once done, I again have this laptop protected:

Excellent service and free for 3 devices. If you don't already use it, what are you waiting for ???

I hope these elite former military cybersecurity experts weren't responsible for the defence systems that got hacked by an autistic young man fighting extradition.

If you use any part of Windows Essentials, Microsoft support ends in Jan 2017.
Here is an excellent article for help and replacements for some of it's components if/where needed.

How many Chrome extensions will run in Firefox?

http://www.ghacks.net/2016/12/31/how-many-chrome-extensions-will-run-in-firefox/

What about the contrary? Can we "convert" a Firefox extension into a Chrome one?

I honestly don't know what to think.
I installed it a few hrs ago and have to agree with you. No add-ons, no stationary favorites.
I will agree that it's different:
