Legacy: SixOrNot, IPvFox provide IP addresses of servers accessed for building current page. SixOrNot (and maybe IPvFox?) also changes its toolbar icon to 4 or 6 to indicate if the top-level file of the page is connecting via IPv4 or IPv6.

Possible WebExtensions replacement: Show Server IP


Legacy: various host names in Title. This allows applications that need the server name for matching with site-specific logon credentials, such as for KeePass.

WebExtensions: Hostname in Title (There are probably others, too, but this was the first one I found.)

Looking for a replacement for Download Status Bar:
https://addons.mozilla.org/de/firefox/addon/download-status-bar/

Does anyone have an idea? Or does this still need some WebExtension APIs implemented into Firefox?

+1 to Stylus. I’ve found myself using Stylish a lot, and got frustrated with some alternatives. After reading the userstyles.org forum, I tried Stylus and it’s exactly what I’m after.

Be aware that Stylus doesn’t fully work on Android. They’ve recently set it to incompatible with Android.

I hope they fix that by 57.

SixOrNot is moving to WebExtensions according to this bug.

Perspectives 4.6.4

Connect securely to https websites by checking certificates with network notaries. See http://www.perspectives-project.org

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.
