None of this is relevant to a thread about UXP and Thunderbird.
... a thread which I started, and in which I have done as New Tobin Paradigm asked and posted a thead in the Thunderbird forum to inquire.
Plus I disagree, developing UXP as a common platform and having a demonstration product based on that is very much relevaant to a thread why Thunderbid might be inlined to consider joining. Since the different historical idosyncasies of the communities are a probable hinerance, I do think this is releavant, too - though my humour about it might have been missed by some.

As a year-long Pale Moon user I would be insulting myself (my profile is from 2015). Plus wondering about differences in current browsers doesn't mean I'm actively encouraging to switch anyone to anything - though it is unfortunately a common fallacy in the software world.
And "whatever the thread"? The one...
... where I inquired about older builds being availble in case a newer is broken or
... the one I've asked about the guiid, or
... the one about ff57+ security beckports, or
... the one about marking we extensions in the addon list, or
... the one where I actively contributed a modified xpi for maff/mht after a couple of hours wading through and testing xul code

I admit afer trying to do a matter-of-fact dicussion about users' perception I was annoyed after gracious1 intentionally mis-quoted and criticized me to have written legacy Pale Moon which is part of the very thread title (viewtopic.php?f=61&t=17530&p=129179#p129179
). If you agree with this behavior that's of course your prerogative and I'm not welcome here.
Which makes me a little sad as I had just ported the maff/mhtml code, inquired about UXP at Thunderbird (first replies are in) and was looking forward to continue to work preserving the xul legacy :-\
