Webextension compatible extensions for Firefox 57

Now FF 57 (Quantum) has been released, old style extensions are no longer supported.

Here are replacements that I’ve found:

  • Feed RSS mini icon on Bookmarks Button – Awesome RSS
  • DownThemAll – Download Star
  • Click-to-Play Manager – ???
  • Copy Plain Text 2 – Copy PlainText
  • FireGestures – Foxy Gestures
  • PrefBar – ??? Might require multiple addons
  • ProxySwitcher – Proxy Switcher and Manager (annoyingly doesn’t support PAC files)
  • Stylish – Stylus
  • Pocket – In My Pocket
  • wheelclear – ???
