Why break critical extensions?

Postáilte

Dear Mozilla: you have to realize that making the browser faster is worthless if you break extensions like TabMixPlus which provide critical *usability* features! Usability is always more important than performance. It's essentially a completely different browser without TabMixPlus. I might as well use Chrome. For example, I don't see how anyone can manage having tabs that scroll on one line. Instead of being excited about getting a performance boost, I'm now sad that I may one day have to give up how I've been interacting with a browser for 10+ years.

What you should have done is work with the developers of the most popular extensions to help them upgrade *before* releasing backwards-incompatible changes to Firefox. Or else roll in some of the critical features to Firefox itself.

I've downgraded to 56.0.2, we'll see how long I can keep that going.

I don't know if there is an extension like that, but an extension can follow your tab history, and can create a toolbar button, so I think someone could create this if they felt inspired to do so.

You could propose it over here to see if anyone takes it up: https://discourse.mozilla.org/c/add-ons
