These Classic Extensions use the XUL/XPCOM Technology.
Classic Add-on Archive is at Version:1.1.2.0 Released On:04/17/2018

I've just discovered this website today so, I still have alot of looking around to do.

Interesting.

BTW, I'm very unhappy with the latest versions of Firefox. I expected the loss of XUL based add-ons functionality would be compensated by enhanced base functionality, speed and memory use streamlining.

Instead, it is turning into a memory hog with constant crashes, precisely the reason why I decided to avoid Chrome/ium.

Here's a screenshot of only those extensions that stopped working without me being able to find a suitable replacement:

Not included here, but also not functioning is anything to the effect of dragging links to open in a different tab. And I can really browse TPFC with vanilla Firefox, it breaks it beyond repair. I have to stay with SeaMonkey for that... :(

Hi Midas,
I tend to think it was very thoughtful of JustOff to create a web page for these classic extensions.
I, myself, thought a while back how nice it would be if these extensions could be in one place and voila! while I was checking out Moon Tester Tool at Palemoon.org, the developers home page was there.

Chromium and I do not get along well so, I tend to steer clear.

Firefox certainly has been a disappointment to many users but, I ridded myself of the new trendy Firefox and opted for the FirefoxESR 52 Series - Havent't had any problems yet.
I tweak it to my satisfaction and all has been working well but, K-Meleon is still my very fun favorite.

Oh, SeaMonkey, I have no complaints but, how many browsers does one need?
I still download SeaMonkey so I'll have the latest and just in case I want to install it again.

In contrast to some other folks here, I exclusively use Firefox 60.x and have had no issues. It's faster and more stable than legacy Firefox and I'd stopped using legacy-style extensions due to security and stability concerns last year. One thing I did do was to refresh my Firefox profile. I've been using Firefox since the pre-1.0 days, so I'd gotten in the habit of manually refreshing my profile every so often, especially when major changes happen. It's integrated into the browser now so you can fully reset everything except your passwords, bookmarks, cookies, and history to ensure that no random settings are messing things up. Backing up first is a good idea of course.

I finally got a chance to download and install the Classic Add-on Archive in Firefox 52.8.0.
I thought it was very nicely put together.
Install was smooth, checking out and installation of extensions was with ease.

JustOff did a fantastic job and I shall send feedback and express just that.

So, did any of you get a chance to check the Classic Add-on Archive out yet and what do you think about it?

When time allows, I will experiment on CID-KM-PM-SM.
It's just having fun experimenting ;)

I hope all of you have a nice weekend :)
