Re: ... e/dqoodma/ Charset Switcher 38.0.20160811 causes Waterfox to crash.

Confirmed with 56.0.1 on FreeBSD-CURRENT:
  • with multiprocess enabled (a Waterfox default), about: pages load but any attempt to load a normal page will crash the tab
  • with multiprocess disabled, any attempt to load a normal page will crash the application.

I have 38.0.20160811 and after i have typed for instance and clicked Add, that url is added to list.

But then if i click OK, nothing happens.

How i can fix this?

Firefox extension" Charset Switcher 39.0.20160811" by developer yuoo2k no longer works for me. It no longer saves the the page's URL when you change the character encoding and when you add new URLs manually by right-clicking the "Character Encoding" from page's content area context menu and click save, the new URL is NOT saved. This great Add-on has been working successfully for me for over a year but no longer. Can it be restored?
Am using XP PRO and Firefox ESR 52.9 (32-bit).

This extension stopped working because it used a Firefox component (nsPreferences) that was removed in Firefox 52+.
