FIR 57 - ADDON - uBlock Origin - uBO/webext - Read carefully if using uBO/webext

FIR 57 - ADDON - uBO/webext works best with Firefox 57 and above, and with multi-process enabled. There are many reports of people experiencing issues with some web sites, or images not loading, etc. Turns out many of these are a result of using some legacy extensions along uBO/webext. For instance, Reek's AAK in GreaseMonkey has been causing issues with images not loading. If you experience such issue, you will have to disable all your legacy extensions and see if this fixes your issue. If so, then you will have to re-enable your legacy extensions one by one to find the one(s) causing the problem. Those legacy extensions can cause multi-process to be disabled in your browser, and apparently when multi-process is disabled, this can cause many cases of page load failure.

FIR 57 - ADDON - Made a small video on how to hack an example WebExtension! - Add-ons / Development - Mozilla Discourse

f you have friends that want to start with building WebExtensions show them this link Most people start with “Hello World” web sites when they want to learn Front End stuff. This is boring. Building an WebExtension as the first web project is sooo totally awesome! :smiley: I choose to sign it as unlisted WebExtension since lots of people don’t know it’s possible and if you are a n00b and want to share your extension in 5 minutes regardless of how useless it is, an unlisted web extension is better than a listed one.

FIR - CSS - What is userChrome.css? What can it do?

userChrome.css is a style sheet with special importance to Firefox. The rules in userChrome.css are applied to the user interface, and can override nearly every built-in style rule. Unfortunately, you cannot use userChrome.css to change the functional operation of Firefox; that's what extensions are for. Creating a userChrome.css file and adding style rules allows you to make changes to fonts and colors, hide unnecessary items, adjust spacing, and make other changes to the appearance of Firefox. The following examples illustrate the wide range of effects you can create, either by creating your own style recipes, or building on the work of CSS wizards sharing their talents on the web.

GREASEMONKEY (v.4 - webextention) - FIR 57 - Greasespot: Greasemonkey 4 For Script Authors

What? The Greasespot Wiki will be updated to explain Greasemonkey 4 in detail. Until then, here's a quick summary. First, there is only an embedded editor. Browser Extensions have no access to the file system, so you can no longer author user scripts in your familiar text editor. There is only one object provided to user scripts now, named GM. It has several properties. One of them is info – the equivalent of the old GM_info. There are also several methods of this object: getResourceUrl, deleteValue/getValue/listValues/setValue, xmlHttpRequest. To use these methods you still need @grant, and use the new name, e.g.: // @grant GM.setValue The new form has a dot, where the old form has an underscore. You may specify both @grants, if you'd like to be compatible with Greasemonkey 4 and other user script engines at the same time. As of today, there is no support for: GM_log (use console.log), GM_addStyle, GM_registerMenuCommand, nor GM_getResourceText.
