I have an extension in which i have defined "automatic updates" to be Off. It would be nice to have an option "Do not show notifications for non-auto-update addons".

Consistently crashes my OS 10.6.8 - details:

Firefox 45.9 ESR

21/06/2017 11:29:07 firefox[659] *** __NSAutoreleaseNoPool(): Object 0x118d96400 of class NSCFDictionary autoreleased with no pool in place - just leaking

I am surprised that such a simple add-on does this but with it enabled it freezes my OS after about 20 minutes browsing. Disabling the add-on stops the crashes.

I am a retired Engineer with some code experience so would be happy to try some experimental fixes.

Chris, anxious to know if Hide Tab Bar With One Tab will be compatible with Firefox 57 when it's released in late November. I'm running Nightly 57.0a1 now and it shows that add-on as "Legacy."

My interest was to remove or reduce the space taken by tabs. I eventually developed a userChrome.css file with the content below. This dramatically reduces the lost space on my Mac without any add-ons:


@namespace url("http://www.mozilla.org/keymaster/gatekeeper/there.is.only.xul");

#titlebar-buttonbox-container { margin: 4px 0 0 4px !important }

#TabsToolbar { margin: -28px 0 0 0 }

.tab-icon-image, .tab-throbber { margin: 0 0 -6px 0 }

.tab-text { padding: 6px 0 0 0; font-size: 12px }

.tab-close-button { padding: 8px 0 0 0 !important }

.tabs-newtab-button { display: none !important }

#nav-bar-customization-target { margin: -9px -20px 0 -9px }

#PanelUI-menu-button { margin: -8px -5px 0 4px !important }

#PersonalToolbar { margin: -9px -2px -4px -9px; font-size: 10px; background: #ddd !important }

window { border: 1px solid black }

1. Copy the text that Neville posted.
2. Open Notepad or equivalent for a Linux system, and paste the code there. Save the file as userChrome.css (name it exactly, it's case sensitive).
3. Create a folder in your profile folder named chrome.
4. Place your new userChrome.css file into the newly created chrome folder.
5. Close FX and reopen to activate the file.

Feature request: add the blacklist feature. I don't want to update LastPass to WebExt version till I'll be forced to move to FF 57+. Now I'm forced to disable automatic add-on updates install 'cause the LastPass update is being offered every time in spite of it is set to Off.

It already exists. Click 'More' on an extension and set the individual update preference there.

Add-on Update Checker
Will this add-on be ported to web-extension or will this die?
Firefox 57 comes soon.

After looking for an updated Extension Options Menu, I decided just to create a bookmark folder called "Ext Options" on my bookmark toolbar and just added bookmarks to the option pages for the ones I used the most. Works just as well.

Some bits about WebExtensions compatibility:

* Addon Update Checker: not possible at all. Zero available APIs related. A few Google Chrome APIs used at least to notify when installed add-ons were updated aren't available in Firefox, so running a Chrome extension as Extensions Update Notifier is not possible either. I don't know if Chris filled in bugzilla some requests about it; now that AMO push add-on updates without a previous human review (ugh) there is a new reason to support it.

* Extension Options Menu: probably it's possible, but with ugly limitations. It looks it's posible to figure the full url of the options page of the installed add-ons, but these can be open only in a new tab, not inside the Add-ons Manager, as for most of add-ons design it. If Mozilla decide at last to let to WE add-ons to link to specific views of the about:* pages, then this addon could be ported in a good form.
I don't know if there are related Chrome add-ons that can be tested in Firefox.

I don't know about the rest of Chris' add-ons.

If memory serves, Chris is simply moving on. The changes that Mozilla has brought to Firefox evidently removed any desire on his part to continue making extensions.
