I am an it admin and want to install an extension globally, but placing the .xpi file in C:\Program Files (x86)\Mozilla Firefox\browser\extensions\ or C:\Program Files (x86)\Mozilla Firefox\plugins and restarting the browser does not prompt to install the plugin. I noticed that the cli tags have been depreciated so i did not give that a shot. The computers are windows 7 64 bit and firefox version is 35.

I installed addons (e.g. adblock lite, ad killer) and when I shutdown Windows and start it again, the addons disappeared in Firefox. I'm using Firefox 40.0.3 non of addons will stay. I restored Firefox to its original state, installed everything again, also did the Malware scan as suggested on a post and the problem stays. So every time I start Firefox, have to install the add ons which is a bit hectic.


Please help me with some solution.

In C:\Users\<username>\AppData\Roaming\Mozilla\Firefox\Profiles there is one profile (qanl58lx.default) and my extensions is in the profile folder, but in Firefox options/extensions there are none. This has been going on for some time, but suddently 2 days ago a window for every extension showed up and asked for updating, which was done, and now extensions were shown inOptions/extensoins. But today they are all gone again. I have scanned for malware and there are none.

Whats wrong?

Unable to deploy signed addons

Hello,

I'm having the exact same situation as https://discourse.mozilla-community.org/t/unable-to-deploy-signed-add-ons-to-firefox-52-0-2-on-macos/14820, but on Windows systems. I have unpacked the .xpi file and distributed it using our Enterprise tool with activation of the extension through registry values. The extension seems to register well, but won't be activated / enable due to signature verification issues. When I install this extension manually using the same .xpi file (drag and drop), the extension gets activated, but of course is only installed and activated for that particular user. We are using the "release" update channel of Mozilla Firefox.

Please help!

How to have Firefox check add-on age only on startup.

I'm looking for an about:config switch that can be toggled to disable Firefox checking add-on age except when starting it (I suspect this age is "app.update.lastUpdateTim… (read more)

I'm looking for an about:config switch that can be toggled to disable Firefox checking add-on age except when starting it (I suspect this age is "app.update.lastUpdateTime.addon-background-update-timer").

I occasionally set my Windows clock back about two years, which used to just throw security errors on new pages. Now it also disables add-ons, which is obnoxious. Even after resetting the clock and restarting Firefox, they still can't be enabled unless extensions.legacy.enabled is set to true, which seems inadvisable.

Alternately, is there a number I can reset "app.update.lastUpdateTime.addon-background-update-timer" or another variable to that will re-enable extensions?

Thanks.

Every few days I suddenly start seeing all the ads that should be blocked, so I check the add on manager and find they've been disabled!! Sometimes it even completely un-installs them! I asked about this before and was told to remove the entries in the configuration. This didn't work.... all it did was cause me to have to re-configure FF from the start. I continue to have the problem.

Well, I am feeling very upset right now, but I will try to tell my issue quietly. I submitted an addon in last January called "Classical Music Only" https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/classical-music-only/ that is open source and hosted on Github. Yesterday, some irresponsible reviewer, for some reason, set my addon as rejected and removed it from the addon store without a single warning. The reason as was emailed to me, is that the code has obfuscation. The code was acutally built using Webpack and minified. But the source code is available on Github https://github.com/classicalmusiconly/classicalmusiconly-extension and you can follow the instructions and build it yourself. And you can simply compare the hash of the zip file of the contents of the dist directory with the uploaded zip file to the addon store to make sure that they are the same file. So why did this reviewer remove my addon abruptly and without a warning, that's something I don't know and I find it unprofessional and suspicious to say the least. The funny thing is that he's asking for how to generate the final XPI. XPI? really? does this guy even know what he's talking about?

Despite incessant FF versions/updates and obvious complaints and demands from FF users, FF Quantum fails to provide FF users with simple settings for changing font/font style/font size of FF tabs/bookmarks/toolbars! Prior to Quantum FF57, the easy to use add-on Theme Font & Size Changer worked but yet despite FF user complaints, no Quantum version (now FF62!!!!!!!) integrates the accessibility features and functionality of such add-on. We need FF tabs in arial black font, e.g.! Inexcusable! Pisses us off! Time to switch browsers!
