where is the problem in understanding?
marked compatible with v57 means IS WEBEXTENSION!

GreaseMonkey IS NOT webextension, at least v56 only:
https://addons.mozilla.org/de/firefox/a ... /versions/

and NTT is BS, dont use, trash, stupid thing ever was. and it wont help, glad its no WE. however NO webextension is allowed to screw any more on firefox, firefox settings are SAFE.

I'm sure there are users that are using extensions others would consider trash.

I like NTT because I can see at a glance what build I'm using with the "Use custom title" option and can do this with it.

Mozilla/5.0 (X11; Linux x86_64; rv:58.0) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/58.0 ID:20170923220337
Multi-Account Containers 4.0.2
Nightly Tester Tools 4.0pre20170912
Privacy Badger 2017.9.12.1
Test Pilot 2.0.4-dev-05dbd9e
Ubuntu Modifications 3.4 [DISABLED]
uBO-Scope 0.1.10
uBlock Origin 1.14.10

I did not use any of the other previous features.
Linux Desktop - AMD Athlon(tm) II X3 455 3.3GHz | 8.0GB RAM | GeForce GT 630

Well you opinion is questionable and If people want something like NTT and its do-able then why not? Used to use it an eon ago

too bad, NTT became WE
https://addons.mozilla.org/de/firefox/a ... ter-tools/

most people used NTT to make outdated addons compatible, nothing more. and most of those people complained about firefox and/or extensions malfunctioning. same as usual - signing or being able to install does nor mean its fully compatible.

i know what NTT is capable to do and how much itself was buggy and people treated firefox for no reason.
at least - NTT is no longer able to set prefs to disable addon compatibilty.

and for listings or anything else firefox has been improved, there is not much left for NTT to add.

to notice - no personal attack only the result when reading or helping in the past.

I use it totally different than you just described. I use it as a handy way to get version information and a list of extensions. It would be neat if they could add in the function of the old channel changer extension as well. THAT would truly make it a useful tool for testing.

DownThemAll, whose developer sent a 'stuff you I'm done' rant to Mozilla in December, is getting a WebExtension (very limited and broken, of course, yada yada):

It's interesting to see how many who predicted an add-on apocalypse and the doom of Firefox are getting back on track even before the official release of Firefox 57 :-"

Just because DTA Lite is in the works doesn't mean WebExtensions got better. DTA Lite will be a pile of hacks [-X

Just to note, NoScript (#dev version currently at v5.1.0rc2):

IMPORTANT: if you're using Firefox 57 you'll need to open about:config and turn the extensions.legacy.enabled preference to true, otherwise the browser will refuse to install Noscript.

Furthermore, you need a "blueish" Firefox, either Firefox Develer Edition or Nightly. The preference trick doesn't work in "orange" Firefox (beta/release). NoScript is currently a Hybrid WebExtension, and therefore won't install on Firefox 57 pre-releases without this trick. Before Firefox 57 is released in the stable channel, a pure WebExtension NoScript will be available an you'll be automatically migrated to it.

IMO i reckon Mozilla Kissed the guy that makes DTA to create a WE so Firefox continues, DTA has millions of users, without that firefox would be useless, the WE wont be broken, it'll be Limmited to what it can do, dont spread FUD,

You should listen to yourself then, and stop throwing out wild speculations like "Mozilla Kissed the guy that makes DTA to create a WE." How is this not adding to the FUD?

Mozilla desperately needs these Extensions to live on an as i said DTA Had millions of users using its extension, without it, Mozilla wo0uld more than likely fall in a Hole.

i dont need DTA, more a decent youtube extension replacement for magic actions - so what?
the discussion about the future or mozilla should do is done, now you can request the necessary api on bugzilla
(like other did before for TMP, session manager, proxy, reading search engines aso)
