Problematic extensions

There are hundreds of extensions, and most problems are not listed here. If you do not find the problem listed below, follow the steps outlined in the Standard diagnostic - Firefox article.

While this change will not affect most add-ons, some patterns will no longer work. Specifically, content scripts will no longer be able to use unsafeWindow or window.wrappedJSObject to make JavaScript objects available to content. The more common pattern of accessing objects in the page directly via unsafeWindow will continue to work as expected. What we’re introducing instead are some new APIs that you can use to share functions and objects with content explicitly. While you’re working on migrating to these new APIs, there’s a mechanism you can use to switch your add-on back to the old behavior as a short-term measure.
