I updated from 5.0 to 6.0 Everything else seems okay. But, when I click my Tools button then click onto my Adds-on button it should take me to my manager page for my adds-on. but it never downloads. It goes to the page and just sits there thinking and never finishes downloading. So now I cannot manage my add-ons.

Chosen solution

Click on Extensions, Appearance or Plugins in the left margin of the Add-ons Manager display/tab.

  • It is trying to load the "Get Add-ons" information from the web server
  • There is possibly a minor glitch in loading the "Get Add-ons" option, but it is so minor that the developers have discussed and decided that no update for that minor item will be done, at this time
  • If you want new add-ons, go to the following link and use the search box on the page: https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/
