Extensions support in Sea Monkey
Currently, WebExtensions do not work in SeaMonkey. Per https://wiki.mozilla.org/Add-ons/2017 the existing extensions system is already being phased out, and will be removed in Gecko 57 release. We need to support WebExtensions in SeaMonkey.
Severity: normal → major
If we want to have a current ad- and scriptblocker we need to support web extensions. The xul based ones are all broken in 2.57 which is based on ESR 60. Classic extension support will not be dropped and you can, once the support has been ported, install both extension types. Binary plug-ins and add-ons are no longer supported and that is the absolute right thing to do. That said please drop the advocacy in future bugs. We are happy to discuss any issues wrt future developments in the support groups or mozillazine.
