Hello! For a long time, I used the Download Star add-on in the Firefox browser on Android. It was the only extension that allowed you to download videos from any site. After updating the browser on the phone to version 80, this add-on disappeared and can no longer be installed. For the sake of this extension, I removed version 80 and reverted to version 68. Tell me how can I install Download Star back?

Hi

We hope to include support for more add-ons with future updates. However, the team is evaluating how to do this in a way that avoids the security and compatibility issues we had with previous versions of Firefox.

What will happen in the future does not interest me now. My question is how to install the Download Star add-on now. There were no security and compatibility issues on browser version 68! In this regard, I repeat my question: how can I install Download Star add-on for the 68 version of the browser?

That is an add-on that is currently unavailable in Firefox for Android.

Before updating to version 80 of the browser, I used this add-on without problems! Why can't you use it now?

We have rebuilt Firefox for Android so that it is faster and more secure as well as being a better platform for us to be able to improve further in the future. At the present time not all add-ons can be supported, but as mentioned we hope to support more in future updates.
