Some addons like Tab Mix Plus won't ever be compatible due to the new extension system missing APIs. Addons like NoScript and Adblock Plus is getting rewritten for the new system. DownThemALL! developer says he's done.

 

If you use this website(http://arewewebextensionsyet.com/), it can tell you if its in development or something needs fixing before hand.

IIRC, classic theme restorer will not work with the new system. It's a huge mistake by the Mozilla devs, IMO. It will only cause Firefox's marketshare to shrink further.

What a joke this is.

 

I don't care what they call Firefox starting with version 57, I'm still not interested in the least bit. I'm on the ESR channel now with version 52.3.0 and that's where I'm staying for as long as I possibly can. Here's why: https://github.com/Aris-t2/ClassicThemeRestorer/issues/299 I also set Firefox to never check for updates. I want to have complete freedom to choose when I install the next ESR version.

 

I have nearly 30 legacy extensions that I absolutely refuse to live without. CTR is just one of them.

 

I recently spent about 2 weeks with the normal version of Firefox 55.0.3, but I kept having minor problems that ended up being a daily frustration. I was tired of living with it and tired of trying to fix it and I could tell it was due to a couple of my legacy extensions, so I said "screw it!" and went back to 52.3.0 ESR and now I no longer have any problems whatsoever. Sure, 55.0.3 is noticeably a bit faster, but I don't care. I wouldn't care even if it were 100x faster. I care far more about having complete customizability and the best functionality that I can possibly get. If I cared more about speed, then I would've switched to Google Chrome a long time ago.

It's a computer!

I agree with you. Some of the this 'legacy' extension is what make Firefox great.

Thank you, and you're right. It seems Mozilla has completely forgotten (or no longer cares about) what made Firefox so strongly preferred by those who prefer it. It seems to me they said, "Google Chrome is much faster than our browser, and a lot of people say they're using it because it's faster. Therefore, we'll make our browser faster than Google Chrome and we'll only support WebExtensions as well. Therefore, we will be the most-preferred browser!"

 

I'd be behind Mozilla 100% with Firefox 57+ if they weren't planning to only support WebExtensions from now on. I would love Firefox even more than I do now if they made this huge increase to its speed without taking away the only reason why I prefer Firefox. For me, this is the death knell for Firefox.

Only reason why I'm on Firefox is that Chrome & Edge can't do browser-wide color management - just tagged images.

greasemonkey and noscript are being updated for the new extensions.

Damn, 30? I don't think I've ever had more than 7 extensions installed in a browser. Makes me curios if I'm miss out on something.

I ran the speedometer benchmark tool they linked to on the Developer channel of Chrome. They were within half a point, not very impressive.
