Todoist plugin partially incompatible with "Classic Theme Restorer", Firefox ver 29

If the plugin "Classic Theme Restorer" is installed and enabled before installing the Todoist plugin, on restarting Firefox, the ui will be so badly damaged (no urlbar, no search bar, no config button, etc - although the Todist icon is present!) that about the only resolution is either to restore from backup, or to build a new profile.

Solution - disable or remove "Classic Theme Restorer" before installing Todoist, restart, then re-enable.

This can easily be repeated in a test profile. Simply build a new profile, install "Classic Theme Restore", restart, install Todist, restart and ... BANG. Or rather, whimper.

I will pass this along to the developers but we don't normally support any kind of extension, unless of course highly used, even then. To do something like this properly you have to work with each developer of each extension to make things work great.

Nonetheless, I will pass this along and see what we can do. To confirm, this is the extension for Firefox that takes the new UI and makes it like the old UI pre version 29 correct?

Now also to clarify, this only happens if Todoist is installed before or after Classic is installed? Or both?

Yes, this is the extension that makes the ui look like the pre version 29.

The clash only happens if Todoist is installed after 'Classic', and while Classic is enabled. Disable or remove 'Classic' before installing Todoist, then reinstall or re-enable it, and everything is fine.

I currently have both installed and working together without any further issues.

Thanks for that. So I don't see this being a major issue for many people, since it's more likely Todoist would be installed before this already. Of course, new users, new Firefox users it will be.

I will look into this.
