Need a documentation on how to create an extension for firefox 7 from scratch or how to make my current extension compatible on such an old version of Firefox. We already have our recent supported extensions published but a client need it for Firefox 7. Can't find any info online regarding this. Please guide me.

I think you mean Firefox v 70, not 7.

Add-on questions should be posted in the add-ons forum; https://discourse.mozilla-community.org/c/add-ons

No. I actually mean Firefox 7. I know it's very old. That's why not able to find any good documentations.

Firefox 7.0 is rather old and vulnerable and should not be used online. It will likely have issues connecting to most current to all https:// sites also.

Firefox 7.0 was Released way back in September 2011, eight years ago.

Any reason why this client wants an extension for such a old version of Firefox?

Quote high, it's a complete rewrite.

Yeah, I am aware of the vulnerabilities. But he seems to have a certain case where some of his users are using firefox 7 and they are not upgrading(won't actually tell the exact reasons). Some people just don't understand. Even though I am trying to convince him to get it upgraded, I still want to get an option if it can be achieved.
