Oh, I just noticed that there doesn't seem to be a way with the new NoScript to "temporarily" permit scripts, and then revoke or save the permissions.

Edit: Oh it's the little clock thing on Trusted.

Yes there is, when the new framework is Fisher-Price in comparison. When it's suddenly difficult to even display files already exist and it's impossible to save things outside of the pre-defined downloads folder it's just plain obnoxious, for example.


Two. Years. More than enough time to decide if continuing is even feasible and either get a new setup working or actively notify users that they'll have to migrate .
When nothing remains everything becomes possible.

To do what? Fork your own version of Firefox to keep decent extension support?

It's open source, that's always an option. Or just use one of the preexisting forks. Or plan for and have a migration path already in place. There's literally no excuse to have been caught off guard.

People have been complaining about this for months. Mozilla ignored it and shoehorned a cruddy limited add-on system destroying the one key feature that made its browser more attractive than Chrome. Then again, coming from the people that removed the toggle to disable images because they were too egocentric to imagine why anyone would use it this shouldn't surprise me.

Complaining about it is probably the most useless thing they could have done. The decision was made, it wasn't a debate.

This world would be a pretty awful place if everyone's reaction to something they didn't like was to just be quiet (and indeed the very worst places on this planet are like that).

Just because a decision was made doesn't make it beyond reproach.

when it becomes clear the choice is made and is not changing continuing to waste your time whining instead of adapting is the definition of worthless.

And complaining about people complaining is worth more? Also I don't need to adapt. I'm perfectly willing to jump ship to Chrome if need be. Its limited add-on system was the only reason I didn't years ago.

I think Windows 8 is a good example of this. Microsoft outright TOLD people what they should want. It was such an arrogant move they outright called the Windows 7 look "tacky," like some fashion show. It didn't work. Because Microsoft tried to dictate what people want it suffered. Windows 8/8.1 had and has vigilant defenders but objectively its UI reception was a catastrophe. They made the decision. People complained. They did it anyway. People still complained. Eventually, they made Windows 10's UI more reasonable.

In this case, complaining and persistent feedback at the least could hopefully make their Fisher-Price add-on system support more useful features.
