They have no idea what changes is being made to the beta/nightly as they are being distributed. They need to get a hold of it first and then see what changes needs to be made to LastPass, before any support can be guaranteed. In a lot of instances LastPass do run smoothly on beta/nightly, but unfortunately not in this case.
You can continue using a stable release of Firefox for production and run your Nightly for development.
Btw, how can this normal cycle of software development, be appalling??
Dude... I am betting my vital internal organs that the LastPass 2.0 would work just fine on the latest Firefox if only I could enable it... It's not a problem with add-on working or not working. It's not a problem at all. What I find weird is setting up Firefox =< 16 as a compatible one. I would be more then happy to go to a file X and modify value Y just so I can get the add-on enabled. Is there such file? It would work just fine more then likely.
All I am saying is that the 1.x version of the add-on was compatible for ages with all the latest versions of Firefox. Numeration changed to 2.x and it's a good thing but I would like to be able to test the latest versions of Firefox and in the same time test the performance of LastPass on it and report issues (on this forum more then likely) before anyone using stable version will run into them. This is not to much to ask is it? Probably 1 number in the code would need to be changed.
Please don't think of me as of some teenage troll. I am definitely not trying to poke anyone or yank anyone's chain. I am using LastPass for a very long time now and I think it's one of the best inventions since the sliced bread. I really believe that LastPass guys are a miracle workers and I have all my family and all my friends hooked up with LastPass accounts.
When I said that it would be appalling I meant the fact that someone changed the LastPass compatibility option from long term to short term. This could be a serious headache for me for a one simple reason - many people are depending on my support and if my sister won't be able to log into her Facebook (DUH!) account guess in which head she will start drilling holes. I bet You know what I mean. Now I will have to ssh to her machine and downgrade her version of Firefox... and that's one of many people that will call me today...
