My Private Internet Access VPN does not have access to your browser following recent update. Here's my VPN instructions to reconnect: Firefox has recently changed the way addons handle proxy connection. Allowing the addon to run in Private Windows is now required for proxy settings to be updated.

Please visit the URL below to view you addons page. Then click on the "Private Internet Access" addon to modify its settings. From here, change the "Run in Private Windows" setting to "Allow".

I go to addons page but there is no Private Internet Access addon to open.......................... How do I get to clicking on "Allow"? Thanks.
