This is *very very bad* because I use Firefox ESR 52, a browser version
that is *officially* supported by Debian 9 (at least) until the end of
this year. Further, the newers Firefox normal versions have changes that
several users - including myself - find very unwelcome. After ESR 52 is
not supported anymore, I will do one of: just keep using it; change to a
secure browser project based on the Firefox me (and other users) find
better (I can name a few of these projects, if you need); change to a
completely different browser.

Please make LibreJS free-er, by not to locking users in a browser that
has been questioned in some aspects and big changes and choices.

There are addons that are compatible with practically all versions of
Firefox! It would be great if an addon that can give so many benefits to
users - and to the virtual life, in general - would not be so hard to be

WebExtensions is supported on more browsers than XUL, so I don't know
what you're talking about. If you don't like Firefox versions that
support WebExtensions, why not fork it? Or fork Firefox 52 (since you
apparently are so fond of that version) and add WebExtensions support to
it? Firefox is not entirely libre software; you don't fully have freedom
2. But you do have freedoms 1 and 3, so why not make use of those
freedoms? You can even make your fork actually libre by not prohibiting
commercial redistribution of exact copies in the trademark policy.

"More browsers than XUL". I do not understand your sentence. May you please explain it to me? "More browsers" mean only Firefox, Seamonkey and their derivatives?

Or if you're so fond of XUL extensions, maybe you should take the old
LibreJS codebase that used that framework and update it so that it's
in-line with the current version.

Well, that is something that may not be so hard. What is the last version of LibreJS that uses XUL?
