Firefox Add-On Armageddon Arrives

Firefox Quantum is now available, but remember, you’ll lose the ability to use any remaining XUL extensions if you do choose to upgrade. While many popular extensions have already been ported to the new framework, extra restrictions imposed by WebExtensions means that existing add-ons are unable to do what they once did.

For those still using Firefox 56 and earlier who would like to know what they are going to lose when they upgrade to 57, you are able to see what will disappear thanks to the Add-on Compatibility Reporter. After installing the add-on, head over to the about:addons page in your browser, and any extensions with a bright yellow Legacy label are sitting on death row.
