uBlock Origin - from where to get it.
This post is going to to explain how to get a current uBlock Origin
version for K-Meleon. There seems to be some confusion regarding this topic, so I am going to clarify.
uBlock Origin is - as of the time of this writing - maintained in two versions:
- a WebExtension version, which is meant for current Firefox versions, especially for all Firefox versions starting with and including Firefox 57 - this is the one currently offered at the Firefox add-ons page (AMO)
- a non-WebExtension version, which is going to work in K-Meleon
The non-WebExtension version (and thus the relevant one for K-Meleon) can be found here: https://github.com/gorhill/uBlock/releases
is going to work in K-Meleon, as it represents the non-WebExtension version.
DO NOT TRY TO INSTALL "uBlock0.webext.xpi"!!! This is the WebExtension
version. It will neither install nor work in K-Meleon.
This add-on (named uBlock Origin Updater) for Pale Moon is going to update the non-WebExtension version automatically by fetching the most recent release of it from GitHub: https://addons.palemoon.org/addon/ublock0-updater/
That's all. Enjoy.
