Congratulations on the win!

For future versions, some enhancement requests.

Increase contrast, please. The grey text on a grey-blue background is not ideal for accessibility, and might explain why some people will not easily see what's required (for example, someone not seeing UK where there's the phrase United Kingdom). Generally, things appear quite washed-out, as if they are disabled.

Also for accessibility (to include keyboard access), and general ease of use, add a preference for the user to have the UI in an extension page. This can avoid the size and other constraints/difficulties that are inherent to pop-ups in Firefox (and Waterfox). Bonus:

  • with extensions such as PopUp, a page can transition to a pop-up window that is sizeable by the user, is dockable, and so on.

In the pop-up, have the volume control (not the non-controllable meter) to the left. In cases where the control is rendered before the meter, the consequent moving target can be weird – begin moving the pointer towards one thing, then when that point is reached it's no longer the thing for which you aimed.

It's arguably superfluous to show two identical meters, one above the other. Maybe add a preference for the meter to be not duplicated within the pop-up.

For what it's worth, I'd have the magnifying glass (not ⏪) at far left in the pop-up. This will allow a strictly vertical movement down from a click on the toolbar icon, to the frequently used search function.

Thanks!

Version 1.8 seems to work fine with Waterfox 56.2.0.31 on FreeBSD-CURRENT, which is supposedly inferior to what's required by all versions of the extension.

Please, is there any specific reason for the extension being published with the Firefox 57.0 minimum requirement?

Although WebExtensions appeared in Firefox 52, but since Firefox 57, the browser uses the optimal version of the WebExtensions API
Firefox 52-56 uses "raw" WebExtensions, in which there are a lot of "child" diseases and I do not have the opportunity to test my addon on all versions of obsolete browsers.
So I limited the minimum version - 57, because I'm pretty sure (I hope so :) ) that it's on Firefox 57 that my add-ons will work without failures
