Got me hanging?
But having FlashGot installed does seem to break (disable) e10s.


install.rdf does not have:

Code: Select all

<em:multiprocessCompatible>true</em:multiprocessCompatible>
if that is necessary (& assuming, which I don't know, that FlashGot is actually e10s compatible)?

(I'd put that in flashgot.xpi & test, but doing so will break the signing, & since FF requires signed xpi... But no worries. FF 57 will break everything [even more], so... Kind of puts the onus on webextensions, which kind of means... there needs to be a webex version of FG...)

FlashGot will be rewritten as a WebExtension. Giorgio, the FlashGot developer, is helping design the WebExtensions APIs to make this possible.
*Always* check the changelogs BEFORE updating that important software!
