WHY THE HELL? The very reason that key exists is to disable those fucking stupid version checks!
So, to enable extensions that aren't compatible, do the following:
- Type "about:config" into the browser
- Right click on the main area and click "New" > "Boolean"
- Call it "extensions.checkCompatibility.<version>" where <version> is the version of your Firefox.
- Set it to False.
The other reason I'm so annoyed at upgrading Firefox is because it cleared the windows I had open. I've fixed it and posted the method here.
