User Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Macintosh; Intel Mac OS X 10.10; rv:48.0) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/48.0
Build ID: 20160726073904

Steps to reproduce:

1. run a clean Firefox profile (48.0.1, Mac OS X)
2. forced e10s mode with browser.tabs.remote.force-enable set to true
3. installed https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/certificate-patrol/
4. restarted Firefox
5. configure it to display messages on every SSL certificate
6. opened a HTTPS site which I have not visited previously with this profile

Actual results:

No "new certificate" SSL message was shown.

Expected results:

A message about new certificate should appear.

I disabled e10s on this profile. Restarted Firefox. And after restart with e10s, message appeared as expected.

I suspect that none of browser extensions from this list https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/collections/ivanristic/ssl/ works. This is really sad because it is one of main reasons why I am using Firefox. To be able to protect myself and improve my security.

hi Mitar, Just replying to your Comment "0" with information we have now. Giorgio updated Noscript to work with e10s.  it passed testing on all platforms at the end of September.

Hm, not sure if I see a connection between this ticket and Noscript?

I think that shell was pointing out that one of the items on the list you originally posted now works. NoScript is great for protecting yourself and improving your security.

Maybe one day this ticket will be closed if Cert Patrol is updated similarly.

That's just my take, of course.

OK, this list https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/collections/ivanristic/ssl/. You are right. Great news! Thanks!
With Firefox 57 only WebExtensions are permitted and are, by default, e10s compatible.
