    for example im using Nightly and i want my addons working.

    method 1

    download and install the Nightly Tester Tool

    https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/nightly-tester-tools/

    go to options > Nightly Tester Tool > Force Addon Compatibility


    method 2


    - Type about:config in Firefox address bar and press Enter.
    - It'll ask for confirmation, click on "I'll be careful, I promise!" button.
    - right-click anywhere and select "New", then "Boolean".
    - Give it name: extensions.checkCompatibility.9.0 (or 10.0, 11.0, etc...depending the version using)
    - set the value to false.

    it's done

    Very helpful you can also install Add-on Compatibility Reporter allows you to disable compatibility checking and allows you to report add-ons that still work or don't work to Mozilla and the Add-on developers.

    Thanks.:D

    All of my addons are compatible so no need for these. Good share though.

    I know its a last year ago thread, just to add another method of force addon compatibility that doesn't need a restart.
