This sucks. DownThemAll, FlashGot, NoScript, Greasemonkey - my favourite addons - depend on XPCOM or XUL. Powerful addons like these are the reason I use Firefox.

Also, browsing without noscript is basically asking for malware, or becoming a zomie in a botnet. A guy I know made a lot of cash with this shit, served time in jail on probation for that though.

Yeah, somebody sent me a facebook link recently. It included over 70 scripts from many different domains. Crazy as fuck.

Setup a hosts file, you berk.

I have about 37k hosts blacklisted, there are a few sources you can get - also super block Facebook and microsoft sites that way.

I run disconnect and https everywhere and adblockplus on chrome - which I use rarely - and only now as they have "click to activate plugins" (assholes, took about 77 million years to add that simple fucking fix).

Safari - runs blisteringly fast and just has uBlock installed. Everything is awesome.

You can get the same functionality from uMatrix

The developer of NoScript and FlashGot has a much more positive outlook: https://hackademix.net/2015/08/22/webextensions-api-noscript/

Yeah why use even Firefox if you don't have ad-dons. Mozilla is really going downhill lately. First they fire competent people for political correctness and now they want to destroy the main advantage of their browser.

Then it should be the reason that you'll use Palemoon from now on.

Ah, a Pale moon user. Is it better than Waterfox? Been debating on which one to use.
