UR extension no longer works with Firefox

Just to let you know, the UR browser extensions do not work with the latest Firefox, 57.0

It has not. Due to Mozilla's bright idea to dump all old extensions in favor of WebExtension, which is much more limited, it would require us to

a) develop some other communication mechanism between the browser and UR. This is complicated by the fact that UR is a 32-bit application, while most browsers will be 64-bit. ShellExecute (the functionality of which was available in the old extension framework) takes care of all that and also starting UR if not running.
b) create an entirely new browser extension to communicate with UR via that mechanism.
c) test all of the changes
d) incorporate the changes into the UR installer

This would not be trivial and I don't know if/when we'll be able to justify the effort to implement.

There's always
1) copy/paste
2) drag/drop
3) Ctrl+A, Ctrl+C, keystroke configured at Tools | Options | Import | Import clipboard contents hotkey
4) Tools | Quick Options | Import: Automatically import clipboard changes, Ctrl+C.

Why not make the changes and label the result as the next major revision. This would allow you to make the changes,, we would upgrade, and the upgrade would give you revenue to pay for the cost of development..... Just a thought..

Sad... FWIW, InfoQube IM is in the same boat. A transition period would have been nice, but they decided differently.

As a temp solution, v56 is still available and one must (on first launch) disable auto-update to ensure that Firefox does not automatically upgrade.

Hope, someday, UR will move forward to the new era of development technologies. It is the classic chicken-egg dilemma i.e. development vs. revenue. Which one comes first?
