Search add-on doesn't display dictionary options in the context menu in e10s mode
(Firefox :: Extension Compatibility, defect)
(Reporter: mackeev, Unassigned)
User Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows NT 6.3; rv:42.0) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/42.0 Build ID: 20150814004009 Steps to reproduce: The both above extensions are installed and configured. 1. Select a word and then press the right mouse button to select which dictionary to use. 2. Try to switch to the IE rendering engine by clicking the icon. Actual results: 1. no dictionary select options in the right-click menu 2. a blank page with a message "plug-in is disabled." Expected results: Expect to: 1. See dictionary options in the right-click menu 2. Switch rendering engine to IE Additional info: DictionarySearch functionality is back when I open the page in non-e10s window, but IE engine won't work even in this window (until I uncheck the multi-process box in Preferences.)
In general, it's one issue per bug, especially when both of these add-ons are probably very different. I will clone this for IE Tab v2.

I can confirm this - this addon, in the latest version available from AMO as of today (126.96.36.199-signed) doesn't add a context menu item when e10s is enabled. Gerv

With Firefox 57 only WebExtensions are permitted and are, by default, e10s compatible.
