BibSonomy Buttons Firefox addon needs to be migrated to WebExtensions

Issue #2781 invalid
Anonymous created an issue

Firefox is discontinuing support non-WebExtension addons -- the plan is for them to no longer load as of Firefox 57. According to https://compatibility-lookup.services.mozilla.com/ , BibSonomy Buttons appears to be affected.

In addition, even before non-WebExtension addons become unusable, usage of BibSonomy Buttons on Firefox version 54 disables Multiprocess functionality.
