Available updates and update version

Unread postby dapgo » Mon, 21 Jan 2019, 16:06

At the moment from addons:Available updates, you can see addon names but not the new version.

I am aware that Basilisk is not a final version but in my opinion is very important to have this info, because it allows to check addon compatibility before to click on "update".
Also it is coherent with the behaviour of other browser based in FF, such as Palemoon or WF

I recommend that you install Classic Theme Restorer - it has this feature among others.

If WebExtension support is going to be removed the WebExAM could be replaced by TychoAM that does display the extension version number.

That is a point to consider. Someone needs to tell Aris that he needs to make sure that he applies the right styling to the Add-ons Manager else CTR will bust it. Someone PLEASE make this a priority.

This was resolved in Issue #381 (ClassicThemeRestorer) and as far as I can see everything is fine until now.

The issue is that Basilisk is dropping WebExtensions and its Add-ons Manager. I did a test just now with it using TychoAM. It won't be a big problem except that the checkbox that "show add-on versions"

Opened an issue to his repo:

Ah, now I got it. Let's hope he will update CTR on time.

Least it isn't NEARLY as critical as I initially thought. I envisioned complete CSS bustage and Add-on Manager not being able to use it. Nah, just a visual discontinuity.. No biggie at all.. But yeah, I hope he will. I suspect he will.
