Why aren’t my add-ons working on some websites?

mozillazine: addons-restricted-domains Huh?


mozilla: Why aren’t my add-ons working on some websites?
Certain Firefox users may come across a desktop notification indicating that their add-ons have been disabled for particular websites. In Firefox versions 113, 114 and ESR, we have introduced a system add-on developed by Mozilla that disables extensions on specific websites for various reasons, including security concerns.

Our team is working continuously to develop this functionality and to provide users the ability to manage these restrictions for each individual add-on in the future.

Having trouble accessing some of the links, so IIUC:

To disable this completely:

Code: Select all

about:config
set extensions.webextensions.addons-restricted-domains@mozilla.com.disabled to true
set extensions.quarantinedDomains.enabled to false
restart FF
And it looks like the quarantinedDomains variant of this might (later) come with the ability for user to exempt individual addons from this restrictions? - https://hg.mozilla.org/mozilla-central/ ... b3f4e528cb

I'm unable to access any of the Github links at all? EDIT Was able to access the Github links, but could not find explanation of why Mozilla is doing this.

It does indeed in Firefox 116. Note that the UI for this does not show up while the quarantinedDomains feature is disabled completely - in that case, to use this UI first requires enabling quarantinedDomains, then reloading any open about:addons pages that are open to a specific addon's details.
