Setting people's browsers to allow unsigned extensions can be a major safety issue and really you should give people a heads up. Its the same as unsigned/thirdparty on IOS or Android: a bad idea if safety is a concern. Love to try this but Firefox is my "safe" browser running with things like NoScript etc and I certainly wont be allowing any old website to drop any old extension into my browser. Its 2016 not 2006. Please do this properly and keep me posted, thanks.

So I follow the steps, even the trouble shooting part because Firefox WON'T install this add on normally.  I change the config file, only to get the same message after the add on installed.  Firefox does not support un-verified add ons, this add on is disabled.  Grrrr!!  Why would you make something that you didn't even test to see if the third party would allow it to work on their software???

It isn't even a valid long-term option as addon signing is slated to be made mandatory in Firefox 46.

Another non-working WG feature.

 

Fantastic job WG again.

To their defense, the Kaspersky add-on for Firefox does the same thing...

Ya, how about you upload it and have it signed properly and then offer it when we hit the site?

...and my icing on this cake is that the Mother Kountry is not from the U.S. I don't add my phone # for "safety reasons" and any trasnsactions I've had with the Premium Shop have been prepaid card only.

Can't be too safe; especially with Google and Facebook trying to own me and my family.
