Problems With Latest Firefox Update — Can’t Install New Extensions

Since the latest Firefox update to 45.7.0 on my CentOS 6.8 system, I can no longer install add-ons/extensions. Things LOOK like they’re working but the extensions don’t get stored in my normal area and they don’t appear in my Add-Ons menu. Is anyone else having this issue?

It has been a while since I added any new extensions so I can’t say WHEN
exactly this problem happened but …. :(

  • I don’t have any CentOS-6 desktops anymore, but I did a desktop install into a VM and installed firefox and the flash plugin from adobe.. seemed to work OK.

    I also installed firessh extension as a test. That also worked fine. This extension was installed in my home directory under:

    /.mozilla/extensions/

  • ​Thanks for the reply. The “normal” plug-ins are fine. It’s the “Add-Ons”
    that are my problem. I’ve got some “odd” ones, and am still trying to determine if some of my privacy setting might have any bearing. So far, no joy with the ones I’ve tried, even checking Mozilla’s black list, etc. ​

    ​If I discover anything more worthwhile in this regard, I’ll re-post here.​
