We also found out about that only recently (see webext#243
) and it's not clear why Firefox decided to drop support for extensions on Android. As far as I'm aware of, a handful of extension will continue to work but Adblock Plus is not one of them, which is strange considering that it has been the most popular Firefox extension
for years.According to Android Police
, they seem to be getting quite a bit of negative feedback on that update though, so we're watching the situation closely.
