Hi: I am trying to decide do I just totally give up on Firefox after all these years and move to Chrome or is there some logical path for addons planned/in process that I do not know about.
It is like Firefox Management Team/Committee team made this technical decision with little understanding on the impact to the developers that had put in hard yards for years, or users who had been using these addons. I am at a loss when I try to understand why would they jeopardise so much.
Since Firefox went to that "new firefox", sorry I dont know the technical lingo, most of the addons I use became unavailable. I have since written to each developer to ask, will they be upgrading their addon and the answer is NO.
So basically Firefox is only useful to me if
- I stay in the old version on Mac Sierra OSX (55.0.3).
- For the new windows 10 brand new laptop I tried also to create using the new Firefox and it was very unsuccessful as there are no addons even close to what I was using.
For the Cookies controller there are some close but nothing as good as this addon in terms of how I used it -- manually removed cookies.
On my Mac Firefox 55.0.3, I have the following addons (all these have the LEGACY yellow highlight tag in the list)
1 Cookie Controller
2 Roomy Bookmarks Toolbar
3 Session Manager
4 New Add On Bar
5 Add Bookmarks Here
6 Change Bookmark Recent Folder List Length
7 Open Bookmarks in New Tab
8 Download Status Bar
9 AutoPin Tab
10 Close Tab Button
11 Tab Open/Close Control
12 and uBlock Origin I cannot update as it says on its webpage, with this technical change, it is not supported, so not upgrade it.
Any practical advice?
