The comment was tongue-in-cheek :--). Someone will come up with a hack though, I'm counting on it.

if you know better than please tell me how the stylesheetservice is replaced , lol

of course i don´t know how exactly mozilla will remove old technology and what their code looks like , i need to take a look at the stuff when it releases , :roll: (as will do countless other people),

but everything points to an easy solution as my example with the internal addons(which are still bootstrapped, ) points out ! the webextension loader it self is also just a bootstrap btw

fact is all the internals -> chrome,c-types and xul are still at the core of FF57 and beyond .

i rather trust the guys who developed the sdk and now webextension modules ( which are easy to contact over irc btw!!! oO) than you ...


ill come back here and quote your post once ff57 is out a few days and own you, right now you seem like the resident troll over here , so why even argue ... :roll:


edit: are you guys really that numb ?

here read this bug
https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=1253419

to understand that everything in firefox is based on xul elements and will stay so for webextension ... ONLY THE ACCESS to this stuff is prohibited to addon devs but will be slowly and carefully exposed via firefox exclusive webext modules (or not)...

unbranded builds of firefox will still be able to load bootstrapped extensions for experimentation and !

Like Andy McKay, for example? He would appear to be getting a few reality checks lately about how the world works.

That aside, you are bringing nothing new to the table - XUL is lurking in FF57+, Nightly can load bootstraps, etc.......er...we-already-know-that. It is not relevant to the average user.

We really can't keep flogging this one to death, you know. You guys need to figure if Aris knows what he's talking about or if you are just going to believe every pre-teen that wanders in off the street and tells you what you want to hear.

don´t you think thats a bit rude ?

I think that's a bit accurate -

As the OP of this 10 month old thread I have decided to put it out of its misery. Locking.
