Version 5.2.3 609.2 KiB Works with Firefox 24.0 - 56.*, SeaMonkey 2.21 - 2.53.*

* IPv4 & IPv6 address location database updates for November 2017
* Minor optimizations/cleanups in new preferences handling code
* Replaced use of some old XPCOM interfaces
* Minor CSS and string handling cleanups; switched to some newer JS, when available
* Replaced the flag icons preview window's size and color sorting with a pre-sorted cache. Now loads instantly and color sorting uses a much better algorithm. (now sorted by xyY colorspace coordinate, red to blue)
* Disabled use of WebExtension pref system in applications other than Firefox (SeaMonkey's WebExtension support is broken, not just missing)

Version 5.2.2 605.2 KiB Works with Firefox 24.0 - 56.*, SeaMonkey 2.21 - 2.53.*

Flagfox version 5.2.0:
* Ported user settings/data storage from nsIPrefService to WebExtension storage (upgrade to Flagfox 5.2.x prior to upgrading to Firefox 57+ is REQUIRED keep prefs; Mozilla does not have ANY method of accessing old prefs from a pure-WebExtension!)
* Removed all use of mozIJSSubScriptLoader due to Mozilla cache bugs that can't be fully worked-around
* Converted IPDB metadata file to proper JSON, now loaded async on startup
* Fixed bug that caused actions pref to take up more storage space than needed when reset to default
* Minor flag icon updates
* Significant default action updates (some fixed/replaced/HTTPS-ified/etc.)
* IPv4 & IPv6 address location database updates for October 2017
-> This Flagfox version supports Firefox 24-56 and SeaMonkey 2.21+
-> Recommended minimum version is Firefox 52+
-> Last major version to support pre-WebExtension-apocalypse-Firefox; rewrite for new APIs mandated for Firefox 57+ pending for Flagfox 6.0, release TBD

Flagfox version 5.2.1/5.2.2:
* Work around Firefox's subscript cache randomly being insane, again, but in a new and more stupid way. (I keep underestimating the level of Mozilla's brokenness, and there's no real way to reproduce this glitch. My thanks to the users who reported these issues. Anyone with Flagfox startup issues after this should clear their Firefox cache and reinstall/update Firefox.)
