Hello,
I would like to know if it's easy for a neophyte to make an old but small extension (map this) compatible with e10s.
If someone can tell me how to do I would be happy.
If it's too difficult that's too bad I'll give up :(

Thanks! :)

Might be compatible already. There are automatic shims that allow many cross-process actions to work as if by magic (although slowly). Try it and see. Then look for errors. Then read the addon migration guide:

By then you should have some more questions :)

Yes I have one more question : how much time should it take for you to make the extension Map This fully compatible e10s? Its size is only 9.6 KB :)

I have tested it with e10s enabled and it doesn't work :-"

OK so I have found a cool guy which should make a webextension of Map This. That's fine.

Can't say how long, depends what needs to change. A cool guy might be able to do it in an hour. It might take you a week, just chasing up and learning all the new things.
