This web page shows some downsides I found in software packages. Each of them, on their own, can cause major troubles to newbies trying to use the software. For more experienced people they spoil the fun using the software and often cause headaches. Some issues may exist by incident, some may be caused by policy of the software author. As soon as an issue is gone to my knowledge, it will be striked out from this website. Known workarounds will be listed too, as long as they are required.

Keeps obsoleting older plugins, prohibiting use of JS Print Setup on Firefox 57 (Quantum)

Pale Moon (safest choice due to continued updates) together with manual .xpi-addon installation, or Firefox Extended Support Release (ESR) V52.7.3 can be used to avoid this, while disabling automatic updates for Firefox and for add-ons, at the expense of exposing security risks. It should be technically possible for the Firefox developers to let the user choose to keep using the many older SDK plugins, at a cost of performance loss. Another solution could be to use the semifree/semicommercial operating-system-based QZ Tray printing software, that can communicate with the webbrowser through Java, at the expense of a couple of additional programmering hours. While this will avoid Firefox-addons altogether, it introduces a Java dependency and it risks small differences between what's the screen content in Firefox as compared to the printed results, depending on whether the direct-HTML or pixel-capture technique would be used.
