    Pale Moon is a Firefox based web client from before the day when Mozilla started their rapid release program. It's basically a lightweight version of Firefox that works with all the old plugins and never auto-updates on you. I use it only for Skotos, and it runs Zealotry fine.

    Admittedly it may be hard to convince new players to download a foreign looking browser just to play Skotos games, which is a shame because once you've tried Zealotry it's so drastically superior to the Flash client, but I imagine Zealotry vets might be willing to install a new browser to keep Zealotry functionality.
    We signed Zealotry some months ago. If yours isn't working, you just need to force an install of the newest version: http://www.skotos.net/Zealotry/

    It's been verified with the newest Firefox as of Friday.

    They won't, full stop. I'm shocked anyone not using Firefox already would be convinced to install it just for this. If you want people's money raising the barrier to entry is not how you do it.

    Starting in Firefox 57, which will be released in November 2017, only extensions built with this new technology will work in Firefox. These are indicated by the "Compatible with Firefox 57+" label on addons.mozilla.org (AMO). Extensions built with the old technology are labeled "Legacy" in the Add-on Manager (about:addons) tab.

    I know people are constantly pestering Wyr/Shannon about Zealotry, but any plans to make it work past November 2017?
