How can Mozilla abandon it when it like the vast majority of Extensions on addons.mozilla.org is made by a third-party author or company.

its no longer available on AMO
https://addons.mozilla.org/firefox/addon/stylish/
Page not found
Sorry, but we can't find anything at the address you entered.


people asked here, i found it earlier elsewhere (wilders)
viewtopic.php?f=7&t=3040780

not the first one (see WOT) which have been deleted - in complete, no backdoor on other mozilla servers.
it may return, but only with clean code (like WOT) and will be monitored.

i switched also in chromium to stylus.

edit
stylish for chrome has been also abandoned im store -> 404

I did not need the information, my point was that the wording seemed like you were saying Mozilla has stopped maintaining this extension and dropped it completely when it is by a third-party.

It was removed from AMO simply due to breaking policies and due to being put on blocklist addons.mozilla.org/blocked
