Hi,

You may have to update Firefox. Please also check the Firefox version on mom's PC: Help (Alt + H) > About Firefox.

You are right, it's compatible. Please try this: right-click on the above link, choose Save Link As... and Save (please note the download folder). Left click the downloaded file, drag it to the Firefox icon on the Taskbar and when Firefox maximises, release it over the opened window.

Question owner

Right-click the link that you posted and use Save Link As....

Then drag that XPI file into Firefox - or use File > Open File within Firefox and select that file.

Compatibility is Firefox 3.0 thru Firefox 10.0

i tried to save it as you said and it comes up as a gif why i don't know nor how to get it to save as a file i've tried again and it doesn't work that way what else can i do?

and thank you so much for helping me i appreciate it!

Vivek 310 solutions 2084 answers

Please try to rename the file as .xpi ie. change the ending .gif to .xpi. If .gif is not visible you may have to open Computer, click Organize on the top left choose Folder and Search Options, choose the View tab on top and in the middle box scroll down until you see Hide extensions for known file types and uncheck the tick. You can later check / enable this option.

That is a signed file, so any modifications made by your security software (firewall, anti-virus software) or otherwise will invalidate the file.

Which security software (firewall, anti-virus) do you have?


Paste this code in the location bar to get a link that allows to save the file via the right-click context menu.

hi,

i use kasperky pure i tried to do that but it still wants to save as a gif don't understand that

sorry for all the trouble

You can try running the portable Firefox 9.0.1. . This doesn't update the currently installed Firefox and you can use the two different versions of Firefox. If all the usual websites are working properly in this Firefox, you can update the 3.6.25 later, say after a week or two.

Please also see this. When installing choose a local location like Documents.

Question owner

heyal,

i tried all the options given and here is what happens:

doing the copy paste i saved it and renamed it i put it into the icon on ff as said and it comes up with a corrupted message as before after i tried installing it again. i've updated to latest version of ff and still won't work.

any other suggestions are appreciated thank yal!

If possible you can try to turn off Kaspersky until at least the file has been downloaded/installed. You can also try to download the file on another PC, transfer it to this PC and try to install it.
