After latest Firefox update, MOBI plug-in no longer works

Posted

After the recent update to 29.0.1, my plug-in that I used to view MOBI ebook files no longer work. When I click on a file, it brings up the window saying "You have chosen to open blah blah blah MOBI file. What would you like to do?" And when I click Open, it simply opens a new Firefox tab, and then the question pops up again, and then again, if I click Open, it doesn't open the file but opens a new tab ... etc. etc. Clicking the other option, Save, did the same thing. I use Windows 7, if that makes a difference. The plug-in was working fine until I upgraded Firefox.

Thanks - I discovered that that was indeed the case. It must have vanished with the update. Thanks! All is well now.

(By the way, in addition to your helpful reply I got two rant-like spammy replies from someone else - I'm glad to forward them to you if you want to see them.)

There is no sign of it in your installed plug-ins. It may be an idea to re-instal it.
