I just posted Firefox 33.1 compatibility in the Add-ons Blog. This is a surprise release that was published yesterday and potentially affects all complete themes due to the introduction of a new button. Let me know if your compatibility update is in the queue and I will make sure it is approved quickly.

Potentially affects all most complete themes due to the introduction of a new button

It is also the original code template I developed to greatly reduce the possibility of themes constantly needing to be fixed due to the many changes that now occur with Firefox since its 'Rapid Release' policy. Essentially, the theme 'flexes and adjusts' to the changes.

That 'flexes and adjusts' stuff wasn't just the usual empty rhetoric you read on the Net.

Is the button going to stay or is it just part of the surprise?

All features introduced in 33.1 should be as permanent as any other feature.

Staying. One more button in 34 and 3 more in 36 coming, by the looks of it.

Not sure why this 'Forget' button (amusingly called the #panic-button internally) is now being called a surprise as it's been slopping around in the betas for a while (along with the E10's window button)

^^ My bad, I was under the impression it had just made it to 35. Since seems like a damn odd thing to introduce mid-release.

My guess is just adding a DuckDuckGo search engine didn't exactly make for an earth shattering celebratory 10th year edition, so they brought this revamp of 'Clear Recent History' forward at the last minute.
