Did you use the button on the Lockwise website?

You can try the link on the GitHub website under Assets: lockwise-signed.xpi

Note that Firefox 68 (currently Beta) will have Lockwise builtin, so you no longer will have to install the extension.


It is possible that (anti-virus) security software is causing the problem. Try to disable security software temporarily to see if that makes a difference.

Can you download the XPI file from the GitHub website via the above posted link and install the extension locally via the about:addons page?
