The 'pin it' button for Pinterest has disappeared. How do I get it back?

Posted

The 'Pin It' button for pinterest has disappeared from my toolbar and I am not having any success adding it back on.. Having recent issues with Adobe Flash, I reset Firefox settings and that's probably when it was removed. In an attempt to simply add it again, I tried searching for it as an option in the Firefox 'get add-ons', but cannot find it--which I find unusual because it's a very popular add-on.

I tried to add it from the Pinterest, following their specific instructions for Firefox, but if it has been successfully installed, I cannot find it on the toolbar and it does not appear in the 'additional tools and features' that I navigate to via the 'customize' option.

The pin-it button can be found at https://about.pinterest.com/en/goodies

Note that it is not currently signed, and since you are using Firefox Beta it won't run. Either install Firefox Release or disable add-on signing (which will go away in 4 weeks so I'd suggest using release.

The latest Pinterest button is signed, so there shouldn't be a problem.

Question owner

Can I ask what you mean by 'signed'? Also, how do you know I am using Firefox beta?
