How do I keep the add-on FLOAT NOTES from disappearing from the context menu and is therefore not available for use

Posted

When I go online, the addon FLOAT NOTES shows up in the right click context menu. I go to a web site and it will show up the first time I right click. After that it no longer shows up on the right click context menu, until I restart Firefox, and then the same exact thing recurs. I am using Yahoo as my home page and search engine etc..

It looks like that add-on isn't compatible with Firefox 15.0 plus versions.

About this Add-on
Unfortunately, FloatNotes is not compatible with Firefox 15 since it added new restrictions for addons. At this time I don't know yet whether there is a simple workaround or whether I have to rebuild the addon from scratch.
