Firefox minor update released: Venkman banned

VK
A minor Firefox update was released (now 1.5.0.1)

Full list of fixes can be found here:
<http://www.mozilla.com/firefox/releases/1.5.0.1.html>

Unfortunately the same update bans Venkman for Firefox 1.5
The only one half-official version was at
<http://www.mozilla.org/projects/venkman/>

Right after update it was announced as incompatible and blocked. What
did Venkman do to Mozilla? (I have to assume that it was an intentional
fix in the update package).

And what reputable but still lightweight tool could be suggested now?

I think you'll find it was:

Other security holes not yet disclosed (as of 2006-02-01).

Is it your guess or you know something? (as some security fixes are not
publically disclosed yet).

IMHO "to ban" is the wrong word. The extension is disabled if it
is installed and cannot be installed if it has not been before.

It is not, and has never been, half-official.

Venkman did not do anything. It is Firefox's version string that changed
and therefore Venkman's version compatibility range that no longer matches.

This changes with Venkman 0.9.86: <URL:http://getahead.ltd.uk/ajax/venkman>

From the new .xpi's install.rdf file:

I use Firefox as my browser. As a result, I'm banned from getting Windows Updates. This seems a bit monopolistic on MS's part, and it means if there is a security problem or a VS C++.NET 2005 patch needed, I'm out of luck. This seems wrong to me... BTW, I do have IE on my system, but it won't use it since Firefox is my default browser (and I have no idea how to change which browser is my default browser, so there you go). At the very...

Overview: Windows 11 and 10 have less user interface control over operating system update behaviour than previous versions of Windows. In Windows 11 and 10, there is no way to turn off the Windows Update option using the Control Panel or Settings app; it automatically checks for updates and installs any it finds, whether you like it or not. For most users, this new feature is actually very convenient. If you want to control the update process,...
