New Hackbar — Alternative to Hackbar addon in Firefox Quantum

Cannot find the hackbar in the store
The addon’s status
And the author also said cannot help me :(
  • Interface: Firefox Quantum is not allow to redraw its interface, you cannot create a new toolbar like the original hackbar. So, I must move it to sidebar.
  • HTTP request process: In the new version, Firefox move almost of http request control API to debug level. So, that mean just only some addons like Default Developer Tools can deep control the requests. So, I must use some trick and some API in http request event of this version.

Name: New Hackbar

Some features now:

  1. Almost of features and gui in this version is based on the original addon (hackbar).
  2. The importance changes are this version is written in webextension technology in stead of the XUL technology in the original version. The original version is best but if you want to use the hackbar in firefox ≥ 57 (Quantum), you must use this version. The XUL addon is not supported anymore.
  3. I tried to make this version as similar as possible to the original. However, due to the new policy of firefox version, the position of the new hackbar must move to sidebar (left or right).
  4. Most of core functions are completed. However, due to the limited size in menu bar, some string functions are temporary not have in this version. I am trying to port all of them. If anyone who have any idea about the layout, please contact me.
