QuickFOlders Pro Licenses do not validate in the latest Postbox beta 5.52 beta
Instead there is an error "myAccounts is undefined" in the error console.

Here is a quick patch. Apparently Postbox is trying out a build with a much
newer code base (Gecko 52) so some of the workarounds which were meant for its
currently outdated JS engine have to be modified / avoided.
Generally there are a lot of places in the code that refer to Postbox and
probably need to be fixed (legacy CSS, avoiding for..of etc.)
There are some more modern "Shim Code" methods which need to be made available
to the new version of Postbox while maintaining backward compatibility, so this
by no means completely fixed just yet. Anyway this version should at least
validate QF Pro licenses so that users can keep testing the latest Postbox

Restoring more basic functionality for Postbox beta. Needs to be tested against
legacy Postbox (5.0) as well!

Postbox still requires -moz-linear-gradient and !important. So it seems like
the CSS engine is still outdated

4.9 prerelease 16 (backwards compatible)
Did some backwards compatibility testing. This version works both on new and
old postbox builds.
I had to use the first shim path modifier without the platformversion
conditional as the old platform had problems with it. For the modern versions,
the path is simply overwritten by the next line:
content shimQF chrome://quickfolders/content/shim3/
content shimQF chrome://quickfolders/content/shim12/
The latest version of Postbox 5.52 beta 7 was released last Friday, with a big
surprise of removing all Addons support. This means all efforts to be
compatible with the next version of Postbox are pointless as of now. Setting
the bug to WONTFIX until further notice.
I have reached out to Postbox management asking about methods of helping our
users to maintain functionality. One possible solution (other than returning to
Addons) would be collaboration and including some of the functionality in the
main product. I am awaiting their reply.
