To test ReminderFox, you can do one of two things:

1. Got to /home/<user>/.mozilla/firefox/<profile>/extensions and look
for the ReminderFox extension. Find the index.rdf file and modify to
allow 8 - similar to (this is not ReminderFox so the id is different):

    <em:targetApplication> <!-- Firefox -->

2. Better option: Install the Add-on Compatibility Reporter:
This will disable compatibility checking, so you can test to see if the
addon actually works with 8.0a1. If so, you can send a report back to
Mozilla (via addon manager) & let them know if it works or not.

I reckon so. But I suspect it will be some time before Ubuntu actually
implements 8.
