This is just informational, not a question. If this is in the wrong place, please move it.

Codefisher is not on AMO, but many of us have been using his Toolbar Buttons and Text Formatting Toolbar for years. Here's what he just posted about Webextensions:

Custom Buttons at Sourceforge will not adapt, as each new extension can have only one button, but there are some partial workarounds. I posted the original query in May, so it's grown to 3 pages:

Moved to extension development and removed the cruft. No compelling reason to sticky at this point. Find out how many "Foxers" use this extension and if it's impressive enough, I'll sticky it.

I like poetry, long walks on the beach and poking dead things with a stick.
Please do not PM me for personal support. Keep posts here in the Forums instead and we all learn.

Toolbar Buttons has had 2 million downloads.
Custom Buttons has 6,633, CB2 has 98
Text formatting Toolbar has only 675

not a lot compared to the number of FF downloads.

You've hijacked my thread. It's not about user scripts in general, and most of those on your list aren't being ported..
