Pop up window continually appears telling me that the Firefox browsing protection is not installed. When I try the install now I am told that Firefox needs to restart to complete the installation. When FFox restarts the same warning reappears and this always happens. I am using TalkTalk as my providor and when I check the browsing protection here it warns me that the Firefox is not installed but when I now try to install it the same routine occurs about restarting FFox and it does not install. Can I install it or if not prevent this stupid warning appearing all of the time?

  • Command+Shift+a (Windows: Ctrl+Shift+a)
  • "3-bar" menu button (or Tools menu) > Add-ons
  • type or paste about:addons in the address bar and press Enter/Return

In the left column of the Add-ons page, click Extensions. Then check for that one on the right side -- disabled extensions cluster at the bottom. Can you get it enabled?

Bear in mind that any extensions Firefox installs on its own are hidden from this page, so everything listed here is your choice (and your responsibility) to manage.
