On, like, Thursday of this week (8/18/16), Facebook Disconnect disappeared from add-ons search results via the Firefox Add-Ons browser page and Mozilla Add-Ons web page both. I mean the add-on from Disconnect.me, which makes Disconnect, Google Disconnect, Twitter Disconnect, not the knock-off, tho I'm sure it's a fine product. Search engine results find this page -- https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/fbdc/

Did Disconnect kill it, or did Mozilla lose it, and can anybody who has it post it online somewhere or e-mail it? I'm not having much luck finding it available elsewhere. I need it for v. 19 (v. 20 at best). Thanks.

Disconnect long ago created the consolidated Disconnect extension, and demoted the Google, Facebook, and Twitter Disconnect extensions to legacy status.

The current extension is here: https://addons.mozilla.org/firefox/addon/disconnect/

I don't know whether it has any way to limit itself to Facebook, if that's what you wanted to do...

Oh... I have no idea what will run with Firefox 19. Why Firefox 19??

"Long ago" Wednesday or "long ago" after Firefox 19? If they're all "legacy," why's Facebook Dis missing and not the others? (I've since saved them and everything I use with the FEBE add-on for future security.) That doesn't really seem like an answer, or is it to imply that Disconnect removed it?

As for limiting, if I'm forced to unblock Google for a moment, say, to fill out some damned CAPTCHA because a site is too mewling to find another service, I don't want to have to also open myself up to Facebook and Twitter, too. Why should I?

And Firefox 19 because that's my browser, obvs.

I don't know why two of three of them are still there. None have been updated since 2012 so I would think their effectiveness has been greatly diminished over time.

By why is Firefox 19 your browser, that's my question.
