This is just informational, not a question. If this is in the wrong place, please move it.

Codefisher is not on AMO, but many of us have been using his Toolbar Buttons and Text Formatting Toolbar for years. Here's what he just posted about Webextensions:
https://codefisher.org/news/2017/10/06/ ... r-buttons/

Custom Buttons at Sourceforge will not adapt, as each new extension can have only one button, but there are some partial workarounds. I posted the original query in May, so it's grown to 3 pages:
http://custombuttons.sourceforge.net/fo ... 995a744b30

I wonder if stickying will reduce the number of queries about those extensions...

Get over the sticky fixation. With your method the whole forum would be one sticky
What sort of man would put a known criminal in charge of a major branch of government? Apart from, say, the average voter.

It's not a fixation, and you're being rude. Many Foxers use these extensions, and they can't find info about them on AMO.

No just logical. Seen far too many cases where forums get blocked up by sticky subjects no one reads plus a better place for this would have been Extensions and Themes not Features

You're missing something. Calling me "fixated" is rude. I said to move it if it's the wrong place.

I think the dude has a point you do tend to throw the sticky card fairly often
