How to list legacy add-ons


(David Hedlund) #1

I’m the add-on maintainer for GNU IceCat.

Legacy extensions are no longer supported by Firefox and thus also no longer available on AMO as describe at https://blog.mozilla.org/addons/2018/08/21/timeline-for-disabling-legacy-firefox-add-ons/

However, I really need to see the titles of the legacy add-ons at https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/collections/11536848/legacy/ – it’s blank, but https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/collections/ says:

"Legacy

80 add-ons"

I could not even see the legacy add-ons when clicked on the Edit this collection link.

Not only that, I had added references in the comment field for a lot of add-ons in my Legacy collection that described if the developer planned to merge the legacy to a WebExtension or not. I cannot access this any more.

I need to see their title so I can merge WebExtensions from it to my other collections.

I sought en-US/ and en-GB/ versions of your collection in the Wayback Machine. Not found.

You might find it impossible to get an AMO listing.

Cannot list/edit my add-ons · Issue #7477 · mozilla/addons-frontend concluded with reference to the Classic Add-ons Archive, which I use with Waterfox, for example:

– but you’ll probably find that collections are out of scope.

Sorry for the late reply. Thank you for checking out the WBM for me.

(we dropped the username for the user-id in the meantime)

Thank you. But https://directory.fsf.org/wiki/Free_Software_Directory:IceCat_extensions_(proposed) is more updated, but the problem is that I didn’t add comments about the WebExtension plans in it like I did for https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/collections/11536848/legacy/
