May I ask just what is "slug squatting" ?
Every extension on the Pale Moon add-ons site has an internal identifier (a "slug") which is a short and unique ID for each add-on. "slug squatting" would mean that an extension developer would choose a slug for their extension that is a common name or ID for an existing add-on not belonging to them. e.g. if someone would make an adblocker extension and give it the slug "adblockplus" while it isn't Adblock Plus. It's considered an etiquette issue and a grey area to avoid.

Where did DOM Inspector go? I cannot find it in the addons site any more.
You can probably find it on binaryoutcast.com somewhere.
Came here to ask the same thing. Found it here. Thanks Moonchild :thumbup:
Would be nice to have it on the Pale Moon addons site, but I guess that's up to the DOM Inspector author.

He didn't.
He just maintained a version compatible with Pale Moon in exclusive mode, for a while.

Cookie Masters stopped working for me several browser updates ago, but Cookie Permissions is a useful replacement and still works.

I keep using the good old Cookie Controller v6.1 by Ian Nartowicz... Not sure it is still available somewhere on the web, however...

It would be nice if you could make a public list of all the disabled add-ons, with working download links. That way, people could fix the issues (i.e. branding). Also, could you please tell me where to get all of Riiis' disabled add-ons in one go?
