Firefox 55 says FlashGot is OBSOLETE

Post by fvi » Tue Aug 22, 2017 6:10 am


After upgrading from Firefox 54 to 55, the browser says in big letters on yellow background that your extension is OBSOLETE. And it gives a link to a Mozilla FAQ page, explaining something about a new standard called WebExtensions.

I hope you're working on a version compatible with this new standard.

By the way, the "Get it!" page on your website gives a link to both a stable and a development version, so I was hoping this would be the solution. Unfortunately the stable version you give is "" and the development "". And yet, "" is already the version offered on the Mozilla website.

FlashGot will indeed become a WebExtension, but Giorgio is prioritising NoScript, since security is more time-critical. I'm not sure exactly how long it will take him to do both, but it will happen.
Religion is not the opium of the masses. Daily life is the opium of the masses.

True religion, which dares to acknowledge death and challenge the way we live, is an attempt to wake up.
