I’ve been using the latest trunk (nightly) version of the Firefox 3 browser for some time now. But it wasn’t until recently that I discovered, that it had disabled two of my extensions:
- TinyUrl Creator
The reason was that the extensions didn’t provide secure updates, probably to avoid fraud. I checked addons.mozilla.org and noticed, that the entire addons site has changed to a https:// protocol.
I Googled the two plugins and found that they are available from the addons site:
And now they work like a charm. So remember: If you are currently using any extensions for Firefox that uses a regular http:// connection for updating, and you plan on updating to Firefox 3, you should check to see if you can download/install them from a secure location, such as addons.mozilla.org.
Just a tip :-)
