I am having a problem getting FireFox to allow the RealDownloader plugin.

I have used Add-on Manager to set the RealDownloader plugin to Always Activate

BUT on certain websites, FireFox give me a bar asking if I want to allow it to run RealDownloader or continue blocking it. I select Allow and Remember

BUT the next day when I go to the same site it again gives me the same bar asking if I want to allow RealDownloader or continue blocking it. And, AGAIN, I select Allow and Remember -- but the next day it does the same thing.

Type about:addons<enter> in the address bar to open your Add-ons Manager. Hot key; <Control>(Mac:<Command>)<Shift> A)

On the left side of the page, select Plugins. Make sure the plugins you want are set to Allow or Ask.

Go to the web page. Once the page is loading, mouse to the address bar and Left click the icon. A window for displaying site information should come up. Select More Information. Now select Permissions. In the menu, find and check the plugins, make sure they are set properly.
