Just yesterday I finally figured out what was wrong with MIDI playback
in mozplugger:

Then an upgrade today strips the whole plugin out?!!?!?!

Unless firefox is going to support MIDI naively, we need plugin support for it.

I know it's niche but it is important to some of us to have this.

to Que Quotion,
Removal of plugin support was announced in 2015
- this is not a decision that we are going to reverse.

I encourage you to work on having MIDI support via a Firefox addon. There
are two opportunities here:
1. Ship the MIDI support via a native binary and use native messaging to
communicate (can be done today)
2. Ship a MIDI API via webextensions in the browser itself (would require
core Firefox hacking)

I recommend starting with #1 and gradually moving towards #2 if the
webextensions team agrees that this is a valuable API surface.
