Disable Add-on Compatibility Checks in All Versions of Firefox


Disable Add-on Compatibility Checks in All Versions of Firefox

Whenever a new version of Firefox is released, there might be many add-ons which are not compatible and Firefox internally checks them and if found in compatible, it disables them. Although there is a parameter called extensions.checkCompatibility which can be set to false to disable add-on compatibility check, this has been now customized and you need to add this parameter for each different versions of Firefox. For example, if you are using Firefox 4.0 beta then the code is extensions.checkCompatibility.4.0b and if you are using final version, its extensions.checkCompatibility.4.0.
