I went into about:config and searched for user agent then removed anonymized by Abelssoft 1397394576 from the string and also changed it from NT 6.2 to NT10.0 as I am using Windows 10. retied to install add-on, all worked like a dream. Thank you for the help

Hi Dave-Fr, it's because you are using some software that modifies your browser identification in a way that the Add-ons site doesn't understand. To this forum, your Firefox identified itself as

Mozilla/5.0 (Windows NT 6.2; rv:70.0.1) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/70.0.1 anonymized by Abelssoft 1397394576

Are you using "GoogleClean" or "GClean" or other Abelssoft software?

See whether they can stop modifying your user agent string with their advertising.

Any addition to the user agent apart from Firefox/70.0.1 makes the Add-ons website fail. You can try to save the extension (right-click and use "Save Link As") and install the extension locally via the about:addons page (click the cogwheel button).
