hi Georges-Etienne, if you have any questions about e10s support for multiprocess Firefox, just drop by the #e10s IRC channel on irc.mozilla.org. MDN also has a good introduction:

https://developer.mozilla.org/en-US/Add-ons/Working_with_multiprocess_Firefox
The developer has been contacted through AMO.

Still broken, re-notified on AMO.

The latest add-on code (https://github.com/legege/searchwp) should already compatible with e10s (I'm the developer responsible for the relevant changes). However there are some other things I want to fix before releasing the next stable version of the add-on.

I'd only release an intermediate update if there were some pressing reasons (like if e10s was soon to hit beta/stable). Is there actually a timeframe for when e10s will hit a beta/stable release?

Yes, https://wiki.mozilla.org/Electrolysis#Schedule shows that Beta 41 it will be an option, on August 10th, 16 days. Beta 42 (September 21) it'll be default on.

So not a huge rush, and it'll likely be held off from release for a while yet. Right now I'm just going through and clearing any bug reports about e10s issues. They have added some shims that have fixed the issues for some of the addons, so even without any update on the developer's end they've been fixed. When you get an update that fixes the e10s let us know, and I'll test it so we can close this. Also, thanks for responding, I'm rather annoyed at how many haven't. If you need help testing e10s I can assist.

Hi, as you may have noticed, things went slower. However it does enter A/B testing in Beta on Monday, just so you are aware of the timetable.

Fixed with SearchWP 3.0 which was released on August 29, 2016 and reviewed today.
