You may want to check the error console for errors related to the extension and post them here or let the extension developer know.

Is this a WebExtension? Basilisk only has very early WebExtension support based on what was present in FF 52 ESR, and it likely won't be developed any further.

Considering the error message:

Code: Select all

Error: WebExtension API storage.sync.get not found (it may be unimplemented by Firefox).

I'd say that's a given

It also indicates the problem: The extension is trying to use a Mozilla-specific WebExtension API that is not implemented in Basilisk.

storage.sync was implemented in Firefox 53, but the add-on claims compatibility with Firefox 50. I guess that the developer of this add-on should fix the minversion or whatever WebExtensions use to determinate the compatible version range.

I'd actually not call the WebExtension support in Basilisk "very early" since it does cater to most cross-browser WebExtension APIs. The only stuff that isn't in there are the Mozilla-specific APIs (what few of them are actually accepted for implementation by Mozilla, that is) that were added past our fork point, to try and get some semblance of having extension capabilities we already have through our other extension technologies in UXP.

Thanks, uninstalling the extension. I will use the NBZ monkey program :)
