uBlock Origin released as a pure WebExtension for FirefoxSeptember 1, 2017 – 8:09 AM
A new WebExtension version of the popular content blocker uBlock Origin was just uploaded to Mozilla’s official add-ons repository for Firefox.
The new version is compatible with Firefox’s new WebExtensions standard for extensions, and will as such continue to work when Firefox 57 gets released.
This first official release of the WebExtensions version of uBlock Origin works for the most part just like the legacy add-on version.
Users may experience issues however when they upgrade from the legacy version of the add-on to the new version.
Raymond Hill, the developer of uBlock Origin suggests that 32-bit users of Firefox stay on version 1.13.8 of the add-on until these issues are resolved.
