in thread mozrepl end of life

I wonder if MozRepl works with Pale Moon? Most FireFox extensions seem to work with it. And the project plans to continue to support FireFox extensions.

(Though, with many FF extension projects deciding to quit, Pale Moon might not have enough to be worth supporting)

    I have no idea, especially about the background of this development.

    Enlighten me if you want.

    OK here some details:

    Basically it's FF blocking access to internals like XUL to gain flexibility for future development.

    I'd be interested to know if the Komodo IDE is effected from restrictions to XUL...

      I didn't know Komodo used XUL. I tinkered with XUL, a little, many years ago, but only enough to satisfy curiosity.

      Pale Moon started as an alternate build of Fire Fox. Over the years, it became it's own browser, especially since FF started being dumbed-down. It's kept many of the features that were removed from FF. As I recall, the project plans to keep XUL as well as FF extension support, so maybe Komodo could switch over to Pale Moon.
