I imagine fork would be the closer of the two...

Probably, but you may just want to find a xul version of an extension similiar and give it to emulatorman and have Luke try to bring it up to date.

Just because webextensions forks to XUL take an enormous, monumental amount of effort to do. hmm

Actually I found this:

https://addons.palemoon.org/addon/advanced-night-mode/

But it needs some modifications to work for iceweasel-uxp. hmm

I use sakura, its an extremely lightweight yet still usable terminal emulator.  You can also right click on it for more options btw. If  you need scrolling as an option. wink
