FastForward is no longer maintained. Package should soon be orphaned.

However, it is now available on Firefox Add-ons, after being removed previously.

It is available at: https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/fastforwardteam/

Website: https://fastforward.team/

Repository: https://github.com/FastForwardTeam/FastForward

Both the FastForward team and I recommend using, for example, Actually Legimate URL Shortener Tool, if using a content blocker that supports filter lists (e.g. uBlock Origin). I recommend this because it's part of the Arkenfox hardened Firefox browser project's recommended settings for uBlock Origin.

Edit: adopted and updated.

FastForward got removed from the Mozilla Addons store, so the download link needs to use their GitHub releases now. It's at https://github.com/FastForwardTeam/FastForward/releases/

I will mark as out-of-date.
