Perspectives 4.6.4

It seems it would not make the cut, can anybody suggest an alternative.

… with a link to Google Sheets.

Hours of work, spoilt.

After the event I found my partial edition, now a named version in the history of the document:

  • 2017-08-23 03:12 work in progress by Graham Perrin, interrupted and overwritten

– but I don’t intend to revisit, recreate and complete the edition. The waste of time was intolerable.

Search by Image can be used as a replacement for legacy reverse image search add-ons. The next version will also allow searching for local images.

I think Containers On The Go should be a good replacement for Private Tab. Not sure if Containers will be by default in v57. If you do not have containers experiment enabled, it will not work.

Web-what? F**k mozilla I’m leaving with XUL.

(Andrei Petcu) #42

Please read this about XUL @number12345

(number12345) #43

And it’s what makes Firefox Great (xul?), without it FF is nothing, without it there is no reason for me to continue using Firefox.
I really hope there will be a fork that continues to support the ‘Legacy’ extensions I use, especially classic theme restorer, EasyCopy, ImageZoom, NukeAnything Enhanced, Saved Password Editor, and a dozen more.

Either 57 supports my extensions or I cease support for firefox, there’s no 2 ways about it, I expect a large % of the userbase will also leave. Moz’ is crazy, it couldn’t of done a better job of committing suicide if it tried.

[WebExtensions] Future of innovative add-ons
(Andrei Petcu) #44

I was also furious when I found out… :frowning: But when I saw all the issues XUL extensions create and the performance drawbacks, I started looking for WebExtension alternatives.

I can’t believe how fast Firefox is now. It’s like Chrome but more customizable and built by a community I trust. All of my old XUL extensions have WE ports or alternatives.

(Mark12547) #45

Maybe a better replacement for SixOrNot and IPvFox: a port from Chrome: IPvFoo by Paul Marks. (That’s the one I am using today.)

(Andrei Petcu) #46

IPvFoo is really nice.

(Msdobrescu) #47

Sorry to be on rush and can’t make fancy entries as above.

For me there are many add-ons I would need, but I am depending on Tab Groups. Where could I find alternative to such productive functionality, as the its developer quit migrate it to WebExtensions technology?

(YFdyh000) #48

Waiting the https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=1384515, then https://github.com/kesselborn/taborama or others.

There are some recommendations in Appendix B: Firefox Add ons · ghacksuserjs/ghacks-user.js Wiki.


… untimely appearances of hundreds of unwanted tabs - Firefox stops responding before the extension can be disabled - it’s necessary to manually remove the extension from the file system. …

Also: see this month’s post from @amyt (Community Manager for Add-ons and Marketplace) – and other Tab Groups-related posts – under the January 2017 topic begun by Tab Groups users @irvin:

  • Concern about WebExtensions exclusive strategy from add-on authors and users

(Andrei Petcu) #50

A good replacement for Tap Translate is Page Translator since it just landed support for Android :smiley:

(Christian Haller) #51

here is my list of installed AddOns. Please don’t forget them :slight_smile: :
Is there an about:config to allow them anyway?
