For a few Nightly versions now, I cannot access the options windows. Instead, it shows another window in the taskbar which, when clicked on, shows nothing.

Previously, deleting all settings of the extension in the prefs.js and browser-extensions-data seemed to have helped bringing things back to normal. However the trick doesn't work anymore and I currently have no workaround. The options are just not accessible.

On a side note, this is critical for me because the mapping of the "merge windows" in Tabmix conflicts with ChromeIpass/Keepasshttp-connector, but, without the option window, I don't know how to exactly change this in the about:config.

TabMix version: 0.5.0.5pre.171209a1
Nightly version: 59.0a1 (2018-01-09)

The latest Nightly (as all latest builds now) use WebExtension-API based addons. TMP, even the latest dev builds, is still an XUL-based addon, and as such, is not made to work with Firefox 57+.

For your perusal for more info, please see this TMP subforum: viewforum.php?f=8

Thank you, I am aware of this. But, since the option dialog window worked until just a couple of weeks ago, I thought someone might be interested to know.

Tabmix preferences dialog is broken in Nightly since January 4th after bug 1379338 - scriptify preferences XBL (i.e. convert preferences XBL to JS) landed.

Fixing this will require major rewrite of Tabmix legacy preferences code.
Since i'm not going to use the legacy preferences code in the future Webextension I'm not sure i'm going to fix this issue any time soon

Thanks for the reply onemen.

And it makes sense as well - either you spend a lot of time fixing the legacy code that may keep on breaking, or you spend your time writing the new WE API based addon - I prefer the latter, just as you're doing. :)
