Update to this thread: anybody having problems with nightly 51 today? For me it's dead. So far, it's the only installed addon that's broken that I can tell.

Do you have other older, XUL extensions installed? I'm wondering if 51 the version that drops support for XUL? Latest I have is 48 (Waterfox), and SeaMonkey 47 Nightly and I'm not going to upgrade to the version that drops legacy extension support. If I were running straight FF I would've had to stop at 47, but WF48 allows unsigned ext.

P.S. might have been better to start a new thread, everyone may not read about v36.

All of my other XUL addons are fine, it's only CB that broke today. Checked the browser console for errors but didn't see anything. I agree, when the legacy extension support is gone most likely I will be too, at least from newer versions. One very used addon like CB goes that can't be replaced and the browser turns into a hollow shell like IE6.

Why not run Waterfox 48.0.2 and be done with it? All the advantages of Nightly, without the constant update issues, and no signing requirements.

What's the plan with Waterfox, they're going to stay at 48.0 and just give it security updates similar to what Pale Moon does? I'm mostly on 45esr for now but may move on to Waterfox eventually once I see how 52 goes and whether any broken extensions get fixed.

Hello, everybody.

@trapper john: I just updated my Nightly and Custom Buttons add-on isn't broken. All buttons work perfectly. The only way that the CB add-on could break is if you had it installed from AMO (addons.mozilla.com), which it's broken in all Firefox versions higher than 48.

Odyseus comes through again. I just downloaded your fix from the May 5th thread and CB is back up and running. Strange thing is that 0.0.5.8.9 had been working right along up until today's nightly so I don't know why it took so long for that version to break on me. Hopefully antonglv will be back to get it officially fixed and signed.

Right now, the only working version of CB add-on that works on Firefox 48+ is here. Do not even bother to try anything else because it will not work.

You shouldn't waste your time with Firefox Nightly. The only thing that they have being doing in the past years is removing features and adding junk. The only decent feature that they added (tabs containers) will be probably removed/abandoned because will be deemed too advanced for end users. So, why bother?

Edit: Maybe the add-on updated itself from AMO? Who knows!? LOL
