On converting extension addon to palemoon format

Unread post by Lassar » 2021-10-18, 02:10

Was testing linux pale moon using 4 tabs of my windows tabs.

Think you mentioned how to convert the extensions so the newer version of pale
moon could be used.

Was thinking you have mentioned a git hub page, but my memory is fuzzy on this.

Febe selective backup is not working on this.

Checked out their forum, but I think they are not taking registrations.

Will appreciate any help you give me.

Febe
FEBE became broken when support was removed for FUEL - see this post.
Later in the same thread, forum member astewart posted here and here on how he got FEBE working again.

You might also read this thread: FEBE not working in last unstable version.

Is any one working to fix this?

Or is there any tool to fix this automatically?

The weird thing is in linux it will work, but if I bring over 4 tabs from my windows, then
it won't work.

Am using 29.1.1

No, there is not.

To work properly, FEBE will need to be rewritten to not rely on the deprecated FUEL.
This means, since the original author has retired, that some volunteer (not the browser devs) would need to fork and maintain FEBE.

Barring that, you would need to do your own edits to get your own copy working again.

Seeing that I don't know anything about developing extensions, and fuel.

Have read that the fuel problem is trick to fix.

Will simply present my must have extensions.

Hopefully someone can get these to work.

Well if you haven't learned anything here for since 2014 you aren't gonna learn anything now.. So why bother?

AFAIK from what others have posted elsewhere, FUEL doesn't affect the other ones on your list.
Among your list items, it only affects FEBE.

Your other extensions are, or will be, affected by other changes, some current, some in the future
(see 1, 2, and 3 starting from "Let me lay out what is coming next...").

You do already seem aware of this, since you already posted your fork-request list once before.

Hopefully for you, someone will choose to fork/maintain your preferred extensions (but not the browser devs - it's not within the scope of browser support). If you have further questions / comments concerning extensions, please post them in the Add-ons board.
