hi LL25255252,

tested the issue on FF53 and it is still there...
so i made a version trying a workaround for the FF bug.
you can download it from here http://www.byo.co.il/Download/newversions.zip (the non e10s one)
it may cause problems for FS in certain situation so let me if you encounter any problems.

Do you have an example of such situation ?

3. Suggestion - post a link to your workaround in https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=1337913 . Maybe it can help someone to fix this issue.

There are thousands of addons that are able to keep settings over updates..
i asked that update several times from years ago & it seems to be a hard task..
it's sad cause settings not remaining, i have to save a proactive list somewhere
in the computer & joyfully go add back all domains i previously added in the past.

I wonder how it would be if the author of ublock origin couldn't implement that the saving of settings..
it's just a list that doesn't need to be updated, i wonder why we need the magic of deletion
of that file upon each update.... .

Will Flashstopper be ported to a web extension or work with Firefox 57 please?

/offtopic - stupid answer... ublock dont need any flash blocking options, thats reason for umatrix. or another flash blocker - or uninstall flash. at least there exist some flash stopper in chrome store and those were usable in firefox 57 or later. (same code base)

@max2

see viewtopic.php?p=14736506#p14736506 (but it won't be on amo...)

@delicacy

updates (for the add-on or the browser) do not change FS settings!!! only clearing sites preferences does (or a corrupt browser db file) as you know. as i said before (and repeat for the last time!) i have no interest in implement a parallel mechanism for site permissions which works perfectly well for me and thousands of other users (and considering also the approach of FF57!)...

ok, this means, people cannot clean all sorts of sites preferences in the browser settings because you've made it dependent of fs..

very wise, keep up the good work.
