Most current Firefox 54.0.1, and most current NoSquint Plus v53.1. Assorted Windows 7, 8.1, 10. Probably 15 different machines.

As of today, 7/22, every installed NoSquint has stopped working. Was working fine yesterday, but I noticed it was no longer working just today on a new Win10 system I was working on. Then I looked at other systems, and EVERY ONE HAS ALSO STOPPED WORKING!

I went back to version 53.0 (since going to a prior version had solved a similar reported problem a while back) but it made no difference.

Anybody else also notice this symptom just starting today?

Has the author (Baris Derin) "pulled the plug" on NoSquint Plus??? I have sent him an email but no reply yet.

Yeah, all installs of the add-on got nuked. EDIT: It's more as all add-on install reaches its predetermined expiration date #-o

Taking a fast looking to the add-on code... it has a hard-coded condition to not run the add-on after some date. Seeing as the developer update these lines with each release of the add-on regularly among each Fx release, it's intended. Is it a self-made poorer alternative to the strictCompatibility flag? I don't know why the add-on would need it; it's not the type of add-on that need to be attached to some web service or something.

Code: Select all
const build = 1492970883;

function startup(data, reason) {
   if(new Date().getTime() > (build*1000)+(3*30*24*60*60*1000)) return;
    Cu.import(prefModuleLink);
    //Note for validator:: This is safe and used to register our add-on preferences.
    Services.scriptloader.loadSubScript("chrome://zoomlevel/content/prefs.js", {pref: setDefaultPref});
    Cu.import(uiModuleLink);
    Cu.import(mouseScrollerLink);
    Cu.import(tabWatcherLink);
    loadAddon();
}


EDIT: NoSquint Plus v50.0 is the last without this date check; somebody can try with that instead:
https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefo ... rsion-50.0

You are absolutely correct!! Just installed back-level version 50.0, and sure enough it came back to life.

Many thanks. I will continue to use version 50.0 until the developer corrects this with an updated version reflecting either no date or some date in the future, which hopefully will happen relatively soon since I have emailed him already.

Again, thanks for this info.

Ditto on this, but it happened to me after I read this thread.
Real bummer in that all the site data and exception sites
in about:config were lost.

I backed up to version 50 and recovered the missing data
from an earlier profile.

The real question is why? Whatever the intent this is like
a booby trap with gotcha overtones!

Hi Brummelchen and Boersenfeger.
Yes I fond the line witch causes this problem:
if(new Date().getTime() > (build*1000)+(3*30*24*60*60*1000)) return;


I have disabled this line. Any idea how i should modifier this?

@nohamelin: Thank you very much for the link to NoSquint Plus v.50. I can see my screen again. That's a bit of an exaggeration but you get the point.

@Endor - maybe you like to compare content scripts:

first view - nothing same - but i would say that NS+ would survive v56.

Hi Brummelchen.
Yes I think it will survive v.56.
Let us see was the Author does.
