Since Mozilla / AMO team refuses to take care of the massive trolling problem in review section and still allows internet parasites and trolls to anonymously give bad ratings without deleting all the crap, I decided to take down all of my Firefox add-ons from addons.mozilla.org. According to AMOs recent plans legacy add-ons (aka non-WebExtensions) will get removed from their site soon anyway.

Anonymous reviews for desktop add-ons by mobile users should have never been allowed in the first place, but like always the guys at Mozilla do whatever they want to do, no matter how much we developers disagree or complain. They even refuse to help, if you contact them directly or via discourse (a platform for developers to get help or to give feedback about add-on development), so I'm not going to waste any more time on this matter with "those" people. They want degenerated trolls ruining AMO, they can have it, I'm tired of all the nonsense around AMO and Mozilla.

Unfortunately this means there won't be any updates for the mentioned add-ons anymore (most of them did not get any updates for a long time anyway). One exceptions is Classic Theme Restorer for Waterfox and Basilisk, it will still receive updates on and from Github from time to time. If you want to use any of my legacy add-ons, install Waterfox or Basilisk or start using Classic CSS tweaks for Firefox Quantum (57+): Aris-t2/CustomCSSforFx#2

If you want someone to blame, you can find responsible people behind addon-reviewers@mozilla.org (AMOs add-on reviewers and add-on review moderators) or on Mozilla discourse https://discourse.mozilla.org/c/add-ons (don't expect support there, at least I did not get any).

You can find the last reviewed and signed versions of my Firefox add-ons here. They will install correctly and work on Firefox 45-56, Waterfox and Basilisk.

I think what you did was perfectly fine. Mozilla is the one trolling us at this point.
Is there any way you can get the legacy addon(s) included into the PaleMoon/Basilisk Addon repository? I would use it on Basilisk. I think they are still working on their proper AMO fork, so maybe you could ask on their forum.

Add-ons as they are now work fine in Basilisk.
Some of my add-ons I already posted on PaleMoon repository too.
