How to get the Personas Rotator add-on to work with new Firefox themes?

Posted

Before Firefox changed from personas to themes, the Personas Rotator add-on automatically switched personas at a set interval (ie. every 1 minute). I presently have Firefox 12.0 installed as well as the latest versions of both Personas Plus and Personas Rotator but the rotator does not work.

Before it was necessary to sign into My Favorites for the add-on to rotate my favorite personas, but now when I sign in, there is no rotation. Only one persona/theme that is enabled stays on the screen. There is no automatic rotation.

Private browsing mode is not selected. How can I get Personas Rotator to work again? Thank you.

Good news! The Personas Rotator is now working again and switching personas automatically at 1 minute intervals.

It began working again after I went to the 'Appearance' tab under 'Add-ons' and removed all the personas listed there (these are ones I 'Added to Firefox' from My Favorites list which is accessed after signing in to the gallery).

But now I see that the personas that are presently being rotated are appearing in the 'Appearance' tab as well. I wonder if it will be necessary to 'remove' all these later to have them rotate again. Will post an update later for anyone having this same problem.

Just a follow up: the rotator add-on is now working perfectly fine. Thanks for all help received. I'm glad to have this great feature back.
