I've used and loved the Blur Add-On for many years but since the upgrade to Firefox version 55 it no longer works. I saw some info on how to make it work again and I tried it but no success. For the time being I disabled it. Blur among other things is great for blocking Tracking Cookies and Auto-Fill forms. Any feedback would be most appreciated. Thanks.

The Mozilla blog mentions that some extensions will cease to function with FF55 release. Apparently there's a hack called the "hidden DOM window" which allowed extensions to continue to work in previous versions but which was removed in Firefox 55.
