Greetings all tried out firefox 61 and I had no idea how much I depended on the old extensions I had.
Whats the newest version of firefox that supports the old extensions?
Is anyone thinking of patching firefox to use the old extensions?
Thanks in advance.

I think that the 52 ESR version is compatible with the old extensions, but if I'm not mistaken is after version 56 (57 introduced quantum engine) that break compatibility with some extension.

Thanks!
I'll try masking it for now.
Code:
>=www-client/firefox-60.0.0


Hopefully kdewallet and xclear get ported over soon.
Its an annoyance to have to redo all my passwords and I trust kdewallet more than FF.
The big irritation is I am a heavy unix style (highlight and middle click) copy and past user and not having a little x to clear the search bar is makes my head explode.

NOTE:Portage tree now only has one version below 60: 52.6.0 and 56.0 is gone from my tree but thats the last version I had that worked.
