Thanks. Though it looks like it wasn't broken by this. I did a regression test and it popped up Bug 1317947 - Upgrade Firefox 53 to NSS 3.29.

Ehh... They're breaking addons left and right in the past two weeks.


Considering they plan to drop "legacy" addons in FF57 (and nightly is FF53 right now) they may think "ah, screw that, why fix it if we going to trash it?".

That's still a year from now. Also why not make one that works with the final version of XUL supporting firefox.

Slightly more clunky but equivalent and robust.

Depending on the exact situation, you may be able to just replace the for each ... in with for ... of. The for ... of construct also iterates over the values of the properties of aButtons, but it only works for certain types of object so you can't always just drop it in.

Gah... As it turns out for each was the problem after all. It just eluded me that it's used twice... :facepalm: (I'm such a loser...)
Anyway thanks for the fix!

A lesson of this is to NEVER use mozregression. It's garbage. It pointed to two different irrelevant bugs at different times.

I found this page which has been created recently and seems to cover most of the variations on a theme and how to fix them ...

I think this thread should be renamed "[WARNING] Nightly and Beta will definitely break some add-ons".
Although every day is Judgment Day, I nonetheless feel like a room without a roof.

I think there are too many extensions threads, plus there is a forum for extension discussion.

Well I would suggest to keep this live till release of 57, with whatever name you decide. After that it's useless for discussion but worth to be kept locked for all the users that will search for replacement of add-ons or explanations.

Opened 57 this morning, and none of the extensions I use >daily< work: addblock plus, foxit PDF creator, kaspersky, LastPass, NoScript, Session Manager.

Are any of these ever going to work again? Tell me now while I'm off searching for a Firefox replacement.

@karlbu uBlock Origin is a good replacement for Adblock Plus, I personally think Kaspersky extension is pointless, NoScript for 57+ will be released before 2017-11-14, session managers for 57+ are no different from bookmarks right now because addons in 57+ have no access to the built-in session restore mechanism. However, it will be possible to write a proper session manager after all needed APIs land.
Sorry for my poor English.
