1. Scrapbook Plus claims to not work in Firefox v18.0 and above.
2. Firefox updates automatically and does not check which Add-On's are incompatible.
The Add-On (Scrapbook Plus) was actually working on Firefox versions past v18.0, but after upgrade to Firefox v24.0 it stopped working. This is an essential Add-On for me.
1. I would like to know how to
a) allow Firefox to check for updates, but
b) turn off automatic updates, and
c) make it so when an update does happen, Add-On compatibility is checked.
2. Please help me figure out how to force Firefox to allow enabling of Scrapbook Plus.
BTW: Another developer once showed me how to manually force Add-On's to be compatible with new Firefox versions, but I cannot remember how nor find the notes. It had something to do with finding the Add-On *.ini file (or other setup file, *.xml ?), and changing the Firefox compatibility version number, it was a simple text edit.
