Re: IDM CC 6.7 Extension blocked after upgrading to FireFox 3.6.6
The block was in error, and should have only applied to beta versions of Firefox 4.0 due to the large number of crashes it caused on that version. However, a programming error resulted in the extension being blocked on all Firefox versions.
The change has already been rolled back according to Bug 578433 listed here.
However, browsers that have already blocked the extension may not immediately register the change. All Firefox browsers connected to the internet should have unblocked the extension within 24 hours, to my understanding.
"I need a fix for this right away though!"
First, restart your browser and see if the block persists.
Second, a new possible fix was just posted in that bug which may enable you to update your blocklist on demand, thus re-enabling the extension. Please see Comment #35 (directly linked).
