how do i install adblock plus when add-ons don't load?
i just installed windows on my desktop and i was trying to get all the adons i enjoy in my laptop. the most useful of which is adblock plus. the issue is, whenever i attempt to click "add to firefox" it loads for a second and then gives up. also the addon page within firefox refuses to load (i think it is a related issue). i have searched the firefox help page and all i could find was instructions for mending update glitches.
java is up and running
i uninstalled the ask toolbar
i have not nuked firefox yet and started over
If you see disabled, not compatible, extensions in "Tools > Add-ons > Extensions" then click the Tools button at the left side of the Search Bar (or click the "Find Updates" button in older Firefox versions) to check if there is a compatibility update available.
If this hasn't helped then also try to delete the addons.sqlite file.
