addons.mozilla.org needs an override for installing incompatible addons

There is a major issue regarding the addons.mozilla.org method of addon compatibility checking. The problem is that when a addon is detected as incompatible based on version number it becomes impossible to attempt to install it even if the add on it's self is compatible.

The example I am going to use here are unofficial forks of firefox that support both web extensions and npapi plugins. Because some of these forks use quantum version numbers it disables the ability to install the npapi legacy addons (which are still fully compatible)

It is IMPERATIVE that advanced users are provided with an INSTALL ANYWAY button because frankly its a bit stupid and completely broken to prevent advanced users from installing an add on just because of a version number mismatch.

This needs to be fixed and it needs to be fixed yesterday.

I included a image displaying a mockup of how I expect the site to behave instead of simply disabling the addon

I am running with ubuntu 18.04

I know, this is an ongoing thing. I also understand that there are, possibly, other programs that might interfere with Firefox always Asking to save logins and passwords for websites. I even understand why other password programs might consider Firefox to be a danger to the security of said passwords.

I, however, want Thunderbird to ask to save regardless of what another program or whatever thinks. Given the number of thoughts on this one I suspect that, eventually, you will figure out a way to simply write it in stone no matter what another program thinks.

I notice that there are command line options. As far as I can tell I can't tell Firefox, when starting, to make sure the Ask to save logins and passwords for websites is checked but could such a thing be possible? This would allow me to add a command line when I start firefox on startup. How about "Ask to save logins and passwords for websites = 1" or, say, add a line like that to the profile page? (that might even be better and then the profile file could become kindofa ini file for users.)

Thank you...............

Just a thought..............

At Firefox' recommendation, I added an extension/addon called 'single pane extension' where I think the idea was that Firefox could be save better. But since the install Firefox has become unusable. I can only use it in safe mode. Here is a screenshot. Sorry, but I can't figure out how to fix this.

How do you get rid of all types of auto completion when typing in an address in the address bar?

The search bar setting is set to "Use the address bar for search and navigation", I don't want to use "Add search bar in toolbar", because I don't want to have the extra … (read more)

The search bar setting is set to "Use the address bar for search and navigation", I don't want to use "Add search bar in toolbar", because I don't want to have the extra search field in the top part of the browser, and if I go to customize, and remove it, it just changes the setting back to "Use the address bar for search and navigation".

I've already disabled the default search engine: "Provide search suggestions", and Address Bar: "Browsing history", "Bookmarks", and "Open tabs" options.

I want to be able to type an address in the address bar, without having any kind of auto completion options, but right now when I try to type and address like google for example, it still shows two lines with visit and search options, and it says "search for google with:", then shows icons for a bunch of different search engines.

I used to use firefox but stopped using it a while ago when they made ridiculous changes to it, and I'd like to use it again, but I don't know how to disable the address bar auto completion settings completely. Is there a way to fix that? Thanks.
