Firefox Extensions and Other Tragedies

Several months ago a Google employee told me not to panic about the removal of XUL because Firefox had probably mainlined the functionality I need from my ossified xul-ext packages. This appears to have been wildly inaccurate.

Antoine and Paul appear to have looked into such matters and I am not filled with optimism.

In preparation of the impending doom that is a firefox migration to buster, I have finally ditched RequestPolicy by turning uBlock Origin up to 11.

This means that I am only colossally screwed by a lack of replacements for Pentadactyl and Cookie Monster.

It appears that Waterfox is not in Debian so I cannot try that out.
