Cannot install add-ons for Firefox for Android

I have some add-ons installed. However, lately, when I try to install an add-on for Firefox for Android, I get an error message indicating that I have to install Firefox first.

Only, I use Firefox on my Samsung Galaxy S5 and would like to install more modules. Is there a setting that might make it appear the error message?

Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you


Looks like you may have tried to install desktop Firefox extensions in Firefox Android.


You can change the section at the top where it says other Applications.

  • Am not able to install add-ons in Firefox 11 as well as the fixes suggested here doesn't seem to work. Any suggestions?

    Installed Firefox without add-on to display and 11. Tried to install Autofill Forms and I get the message "there was an error to install AutoFill Forms. Try Again"even for any other add-on. In addition, running Norton 360V6 and can't even see Norton Toolbar. Have uninstalled and reinstalled Firefox and 360 (the latter using Norton Removal Tool). Do not have this problem with Internet Explorer or Firefox 11 on my other computers. Just this one. An earlier version of Firefox plugins appears, but not no matter what Add-ons.

    It is possible that there is a problem with the files that store the registry extensions.

    Delete the files (extensions.sqlite, extensions.ini, extensions.cache) extensions.* and compatibility.ini in the profile folder of Firefox to reset the extensions registry.

    New files will be created if necessary.

    See "extension corrupted files:

    If you see disabled extensions, is not compatible, in "tools > Modules > Extensions ' and then click the Tools button, on the left side of the search bar (or click on the"Find updates"button in older versions of Firefox) to do a check of compatibility or to see if there is an available update compatibility.

  • Cannot install add ons os 6

    Nice day.

    just bought the RN516 running OS6.4. everything looks OK so far. But while installing the module, I have noticed that it is never possible to install one of the Add-ons pre-registered through the want of the NAS page. I have always download and install manually. However, it has worked so far.

    I do not think that the download/install treated well the websi NAS is supposed to "does not work.

    Here, I have an idea or a genuine reason for it?

    Thanks for the suggestions or recommendations.


    Thanks for the suggestions.

    Network and DNS settings of course is the 1st thing to check and there is / was no issue. Incidentally OpenDNS ( is just fine and preferred on Google's servers at this time.

    What a relief :-)

    Once again thanks for the help.

    After installing Firefox on Windows 7, mozilla site and the addons page 29 does not load correctly. Some such problem indicated in and I tried all the steps but still does not work.

    OK Jefferson: did so. For those interested, my response on the other thread was:

    «After stared grumpily the computer screen for a while after you posted my message, I suddenly realized that, although it checked twice, the date was in fact erroneous.» For some reason, the date to yesterday - which is obviously where my mind was still, because when I saw the date I thought Yes, "it is the right date." After that I put today's date, the problem disappeared. Curious that this one small issue should cause such a problem "profound." Anyway, all sorted. »

  • Add ons for iOS

    Don't see a menu button of Firefox for iOS, how do we install add ons/extensions etc.?

    Extensions are not part of Firefox for iOS at the moment. It can be an added feature in the future.

  • Firefox ask me to install add ons evertime the opening... I disabled all of the updates.

    now I use the latest version of Firefox (10.0). AprΦs the dΘmarrage, I open the Firefox browser. He always asks me to install the Add-ons that is already, I added to the browser.


    I installed the firebug add-on. When I open a browser he asks me to install firebug again. After installing the browser must be restarted to activate firebug

       So please reply me for this problem

    My guess:

    You get a prompt to confirm what modules you have installed. There used to be a problem with other programs to install add-ons without your permission, and so many people knew they had these add-ons installed. Sometimes, these modules caused Firefox slow or unstable. However, there are some cases where people are aware of these modules being installed by third parties and they really want.

    So in a Firefox update has a few months ago, a single confirmation prompt was added to ensure that you are aware of all add-ons that are already installed and allow you to select those that you want to keep.

    Here is a blog about the feature:

  • Firefox 4 is unable to install add-ons. After download the 'installation' bar stuck in the beginning and never ends.

    Firefox 4 is unable to install add-ons. After download the 'installation' bar stuck in the beginning and never ends.
    After that I updated to 3.6, FF4 to see any of my previous modules.
    When you try to install the new, I see no error dialog box or message, just install bar is not going anywhere.

    To anyone out there yet with this issue.
    The solution that worked for me was to create a new user profile.
    Give it a try, if it works you can just move your settings and other things more.

  • cannot install update security for Windows XP (KB2686509)

    cannot install update security for Windows XP (KB2686509)

    Hello, gsfl Jg,

    Open Windows Update and check if KB2686509 and KB2676562 are or are not installed.

    When you tried to install the update, you would have received an error code.  Please return this zip code which lies in Windows Update.

    Why this update is offered again several times?

    Windows updates are revived until the update is installed on your computer. If this update is already, perhaps an installation failure has occurred. Check log files to install KB for the error codes. For example, the log file of installation KB for this security update would probably "C:\Windows\ KB2686509.log"
    For more information about how to resolve these problems, click on the number below to view the article in the Microsoft Knowledge Base:

    958051 ( you receive a "0x8007F0F4" error code when you try to install the updates on the Windows Update Web site or the Microsoft Update Web site

    What should I do if the installation of this update fails with the error "0x8007F0F4"?

    If you receive the "0x8007F0F4" error when you try to install this security update, follow these steps:

    1. Open the Faultykeyboard.log file that is located in the folder %windir%. This log file contains information about the registered keyboard layout files that are not in the folder % Windir%\System32. The log file will resemble the following:

      Keyboard1.dll.\Layoutfiles\keyboard2.dll C:\Windows\System\Kbda1.dll

      Note In this example, the first entry is just a file name. The second entry includes a relative path with the name of the file. The third category includes a full path of the file.

    2. Copy the files that are listed in the Faultykeyboard.log log file in the System32 folder.
