Chrome plugin compatible Firefox

Postby marco275 » Mon Jan 02, 2017 7:09 am

Hi Chuck, is the Chrome plugin compatible with Firefox since it's using WebExtensions. If yes where can I find the file.
When I try to install via the site I have to use Chrome.

I have not tested the Chrome version in Fx. The Fx versions (written in XUL and XPCOM) are still available from my homepage.

I know, i'm using it. But my understanding is that you no longer developing it. So chances are that with one or another firefox update PEP will stop working.

It is true that I will no longer continue to develop for Firefox (starting with the v57 release when XPCOM and XUL are deprecated). My extensions will still work and development will continue with Firefox clones like Pale Moon. While I have ported a couple of my extensions to chrome, I've found WebExtensions to be far too limiting to create anything more powerful than 'toys'. I've tried to make the Chrome Paste Email Plus version as useful and easy to use as the Fx version, but there are just some things that WebExtensions cannot do. Many other developers are concerned as well.
