Hi, Felix
I think your input would be welcome, though I'm not an integral part
of the GNU community, so I can't speak for GNU people.

The Waterfox project is planning to open its own extensions store that
supports XUL. I wonder, if it would instead be possible to add UI
support for more than just one store.

That will likely take most of his spare time.

There is great consternation amonst users and some developers about

It would therefore be great, if GNU hosted (or at least linked to)

We have been heavily undermanned for maintaining IceCat add-ons on the
Free Software Directory. After hundreds of hours I'm not going to
spend any more time on legacy add-ons except highly relevant add-ons
like LibreJS.
Is there any way I can help with this?

I can need some help. Let me come back within a few weeks.

The Firefox-derivative Waterfox browser project has decided to keep
support for XUL ongoing.

This was quickly solved after I discussed with the author. I updated
https://directory.fsf.org/wiki/UBlock_Origin to version 1.14.4, it
should work with IceCat 52.1.0.
Just to make a small note:
It also works with the 1.13.7.rc4 beta version of UbO.
Has for V57 when webextensions will be mandatory UbO works from version
Same thing for umatrix it needs to be upgrade to version 1.0.1rc1.
With v57 HTTPS everywhere works only with version 2017.8.31.
Have a good day.

Greetings all,

I recently noticed that uBlock Origins was labelled incompatible with
IceCat 52.1.0. The author published a new version (1.14.0) which
the support for any Firefox-based browser that does not support
WebExtensions. It looks like IceCat page saw that version and updated
uBlock Origins without (being capable of?) checking whether that
could actually be used.

It was possible to reverse this update by downloading uBlock
1.13.8 from

and disabling automatic updates for it (not sure if disabling them
necessary), but it would be nice if -- until WebExtensions are
by IceCat, of course -- IceCat would hold back add-on updates if they
are marked as incompatible with the corresponding Firefox version (in
this case, 52.1.0esr).

Kind regards.
