5 worked in 56.
5 while a "hybrid", while containing both legacy & webex, was a webex to 56, no?
No. 5 is a pure non-webex, no hybrid.
So why such a drastic change to bring out 10 ?
Because that's webex. Which lacks the APIs 5 used.

I was under the impression the 5 series was purely non-webextension. Otherwise why would FF56 have reported it as Legacy. If that isn't so, simply stating that fact would have sufficed.
grizzler, except that the post doesn't read like an honest reply. It reads like someone trying to be "wise guy". That is not the way to answer people around here.
