    Firefox 57 and Quantum are definitely big achievements. But at the same time you destroyed a lot of great addons, like SESSION MANAGER / TAB MIX PLUS. I am staying with Firefox 56 (or Waterfox) until you will solve the problem (see below). Firefox is going to loose a lot of advanced users.

    Can you prepare APIs needed by developers of Session Manager / Tab Mix Plus (for its session manager functionality) and other similar extensions (Tab Session Manager, MySessions) to make capable WebExtensions?

    Some of those developers stated clearly that they will prepare WebExtension only after all APIs will be prepared by Mozilla. Here are links with statements
    from Session Manager developer Michael Kraft (Morac):

    The list of needed APIs by those addons:

    Bug reported on Bugzilla@Mozdev

    Also those session manager extensions could cooperate nicely with FF multi-account containers.

      as i also miss some extensions and tried to replace them:
      try Tab Session Manager for session manager – for me it is an ok replacement.

      Also hope that multi-account containers get some updates – as to me it seems sessions are not saved.

      Gestures replacements are also ok – although not working on all sides (like the official addon site)

        I tried Tab Session Manager is separate profile and I had A LOT OF PROBLEMS. Right now this addon is at alpha development stage. So I came back to FF56/Waterfox 56.

        Right now good session manager is the only extension, which is keeping me not to use FF57.

    so, you feature gestures extension, but refuse to provide API required to make it actually work? makes sense
    seriously, it is the main reason why moving to 57+ is impossible
