Really disappointed that Firefox no longer supports Tab for a Cause! I entirely agree with the motivation for it, i.e. protecting users’ privacy, however I strongly feel that Tab for a Cause is an organisation that should be permitted - it’s such a great cause, after all. It’s such a shame that this has happened and I will have to consider switching to a different browser if this is not changed
I object to rationalizing this in the name of privacy, for 2 reasons:
- Why is the user not given an obvious choice in this instance on what the plug-in can and cannot do? That’s the whole point of permissions, isn’t it?
- If privacy was that important to Mozilla, why is it not possible to avoid displaying email addresses on BMO? And more to the point, why was I not at least warned about this questionable behavior when I signed up?
is there a way I can sideload the plugin, or do I have to switch to another browser? the main reason I have been using Firefox this long is because it’s FOSS, and for that reason I really don’t appreciate my freedom being restricted like this, even if I could still technically fork or patch it based on the source.
Seconding this. The tab for a cause team has a good defense for their extension here.
I’m switching from chrome to firefox because of the whole manifest v3 debacle and was sad to see I couldn’t use this extension.
