While I have about 13 add-on, I only really rely on a very few, less
than a hand full. I suspect that ABP will be one that will have
support dropped for it and, as such, will eventually fall out of
usefulness after web sites find ways around its existing configuration.
On that, the news is good: ABP also has a Chrome version, and thus,
they already support the Web Extensions API. I haven't checked
closely, but I think they already have a version that runs in the
betas that don't have XUL.
Yes, but then ... Chrome :-(
I would think that since the ESR channel was set up initially to help
mitigate the migration issues for Enterprise accounts and since 57.0
will kill off XPCOM that Mozilla would set Fx56.x as the last ESR release?
Once 2.49 is released, then Seamonkey will be following the Firefox
ESR track, but it still remains to see what they'll do when Firefox
52.8ESR goes EOL.
I would say they will stick with the regular plan of Firefox 59 being
the next ESR.
You have a year to get up to date. Well, maybe a little less now.
