Thank you Michael Kraft and good people at Mozilla for all you effort!
Dear Mozilla, we are still in pain !!!!!!
In Firefox 57 or higher, a lot of highly efficient and practical add-ons(that you call legacy[and what a good legacy they were!]) will not work.
The change from the other add-on infrastructure was done too quickly and brutally. Would it have been too much for add-ons devs, to have a tool which translated their add-on from previous technology to current?
Who is the main beneficiary(at least until now) of this mess? :::::: G O O G L E .
Check out the usage share of browsers in the last years: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Usage_share_of_web_browsers
A lot of users were lured from google search page to install their browser, and the majority of users do not understand what google is.
Google represents: Spying, Monopoly, Closed and Proprietary source code which cannot be reviewed by anyone except some people at google, and little regard for customization. Mozilla is (or at least was before FF57) the opposite.
Who are the main disadvantaged people? ::: a lot of the every day users of Firefox. Since the change(after FF57), about 5% of the users have completely left Firefox, and a lot others have stopped updating beyond FF 56.
