Re: add-ons for firefox


I have found that the search from "about:addons" page is broken.
You should search the addons from web site instead.

I have no good ideas how to fix the broken "about:addons" page
unless Mozilla adds NetBSD as their supported OS and
addon authors mark their addons as NetBSD ready.

JavaScript only addons should work with Firefox on NetBSD.
At least I can install
to my pkgsrc/www/firefox-72.0.1nb1 on NetBSD/amd64 9.99.39.
However I have not tested its functionality.

Thank you.
