Can someone tell me how to re-enable an extension that Firefox 78.X-ESR has disabled? This is a user profile that was from an older version of Firefox-ESR. The parameter EXTENSIONS.BLOCKLIST.ENABLED is already set to FALSE. Thanks for any input.

It would help if you post the name of this extension.

Are you sure that this is a Web extension and not a Legacy extension since you posted with a Firefox 52 version ?

Is the particular extension actually listed in blocklist.xml?

I'm actually using Seamonkey 2.49.5 with a modified user-agent string to make it look like it was just Firefox 52.

The extension I'm trying to have working in Firefox 78.X-ESR is the SQ-Lite Manager 0.83, which I found also worked in the new version of Seamonkey 2.53.X as well on a different computer with Win-10 Pro as well as Firefox-ESR 52.90 on this computer. Trying to figure out if there is a way to make this extension work under 78.X as well. In the case of Seamonkey 2.53.X, the extension was already previously installed in the user profile folders and was imported into an installation of SM 2.53.X and it worked so I'm trying to do the same with FF 78.X-ESR if possible.

Doesn't appear to be listed there, when doing a text search. But I could be searching the wrong way.

SQLite Manager is a Legacy extension and thus won't work in current Firefox releases.
