Firefox Extension Request and Fork List

This page will track various critical or important Firefox Extensions that the user base has expressed a direct need for since the release of Pale Moon 29.2.0 and map them to any forks or other suitable replacements within our own Add-ons Site.

This "master list" will be useful for finding extensions that new or current Add-on Developers may wish to fork. Including existing Pale Moon extensions have been abandoned or abused by their developer.

NOTE: This page will be continuously updated. So check back often! Additionally, you can help update and improve this page by pull request on the repository!

Firefox-targeted Extensions

This list is mostly based on requests gathered from the user base over the years. Unfortently, some extensions cannot be reasonably forked due to several conserns. For example, we will note most of the service-based extensions that have been requested. Those that target a specific website to provide services or modify content or design elements that has very likely changed in the past several years and in most cases are entirely proprietary in nature. Thus they are NOT considered as good forking prospects.

Also noted here are extensions that are based on Mozilla's Add-ons SDK, also known as Jetpack. Jetpack technology has been deprecated in the Unified XUL Platform and may not be submitted to the Add-ons Site under normal circumstances. As such Jetpack-based extensions are also NOT good prospects for forks and are listed below as "Unforkable". It is recommended that new extensions based on their concept are created instead.

Withdrawn extensions by JustOff

The Add-on Developer and former Pale Moon contributor, JustOff, withdrew his extensions in a very abusive manner that has shaken or obliterated user confidence in his continuing activities. To that end, some users have expressed their wish that current or future Add-on Developers provide direct forks of his former APMO offerings. Below is a list of his important extensions and current alternative forks.

NOTE: Forks of any of JustOff's extensions that are Jetpack-based are eligible for special dispensation in regards to submission to the Add-ons Site. Please contact a member of the Add-ons Team or a Phoebus Administrator for more information on this.

Deactivated extensions by riiis

This Add-on Developer has a well established history of bucking proper procedure both in moral or legal contexts. Though we appreciate his early enthusiasm at a critical time for us around Pale Moon 25, proper vetting in the context of intellectual property was not as tightly enforced for longstanding developers as it is today for new contributors. A recent audit found several extensions with potential or actual issues. However, riiis has chosen not to address these and the only recourse left was to deactivate them.

The user base has requested a list of extensions no longer available on the Add-ons Site which are for all intents and purposes are now considered abandoned. To facilitate replacements for these troublesome extensions, the following list is provided with the reasoning for their deactivation. Upon request the last released version will be produced (along with more specific information) as a base for proper forking as there are no known code repositories maintained by riiis. If you wish to fork any of the following, please contact a member of the Add-ons Team or a Phoebus Administrator.

NOTE: Forks of any of riiis's extensions that are Jetpack-based are eligible for special dispensation in regards to submission to the Add-ons Site. Please contact a member of the Add-ons Team or a Phoebus Administrator for more information on this.
