Since 24 August 2016, the Turn Off the Lights Firefox extension uses the WebExtensions technology that uses the same extension API supported by Google Chrome, Opera and Microsoft Edge. The API is also fully compatible with multiprocess Firefox (is called Electrolysis, sometimes abbreviated to e10s). The Electrolysis split Firefox into a UI process and a content process. The splitting UI from content means that when a web page is devouring your computer’s processor, your tabs and buttons and menus won’t lock up too.
I see a message when on the page “Not available for Firefox 48.0”
If you want to install the Turn Off the Lights Firefox extension on your web browser. And you see this error message “Not available for Firefox 48.0”? Then it best to update your Firefox web browser, because the following data is version 220.127.116.11 the latest support version in Firefox v48.
Version 18.104.22.168 – that is the last XUL version for Firefox v48
