Known Incompatible Add-ons

Why aren’t all Firefox add-ons compatible with Pale Moon?

While we have strived for compatibility with Firefox add-ons, Pale Moon and Firefox are separate products. There are many possible reasons why an add-on is or has become incompatible with Pale Moon:

  • The change in the Pale Moon globally unique identifier (GUID)
    In Pale Moon 25, the GUID was changed to reflect the continuing divergence between the browser and its sibling. Most of the time a modification to chrome.manifest or bootstrap.js to add/change the hard-coded GUID is a simple solution to issues with add-ons. The Pale Moon add-ons team will do this for some of the most used add-ons where a developer has chosen not to support Pale Moon, thus creating a pseudo-static version of the add-on as a Pale Moon-specific one.
  • Australis
    In Firefox 29, Mozilla adopted a nearly completely rewritten user interface and theme as well as some technologies that Pale Moon has chosen not to implement. Add-ons targeting these features without fall-backs to the more time-tested and more commonly used features in all Mozilla-based programs will not be supported.
  • Jetpack/SDK
    In Pale Moon 27, we've been forced to drop support for the Add-On SDK (AKA Jetpack) as a supported framework for extensions. This means that a number of Firefox extensions that build on this abstraction framework will no longer work in Pale Moon. If this is the case, then the Add-On Manager inside the browser will inform you of it with an explanatory text.

I found an add-on that has issues, where can I report it?

We have set up a thread on the Pale Moon forums where you can report it. This will allow us to at the very least identify it and add it to this page. As well as, determine the cause and a course of action so that we can resolve the incompatibility.
