How to install uBlock Origin in Pale Moon 27 [revised]

Raymond Hill's enormously popular uBlock Origin is now available in a special legacy edition. Although Mozilla's Add-ons Site offers the Web Extensions edition, Pale Moon 27 requires the XUL or "full add-on" or legacy edition. So here is how to install the correct edition for Pale Moon 27.

1. Go to the uBlock Origin Releases page at GitHub (a version-control repository and Internet hosting site).

2. Scroll down until you see a heading for "firefox-legacy" in blue letters, followed by numbers.

3. Now we install the extension.
a. Look under Assets, and you will see the link for the package uBlock0.firefox-legacy.xpi . This is the XUL edition that will properly function in Pale Moon.
b. Click on this link. Click "Allow" if prompted by a pop-up.

4. Now look in your Add-ons Manager. You should see uBlock Origin installed with the beloved Blue Dot. :thumbup:

Nice work! :clap:

5. Optional step:
Install JustOff's uBlock Origin Updater. This will automatically update uBlock Origin so that you will not have to repeat steps 1-4 in order to update the extension.

If you did not install JustOff's uBlock Origin Updater as mentioned in step 5, then yes, you need to reinstall. In fact, that would be the way to update the extension even if Raymond Hill had not created this new branch. The old version is overwritten when you install the new version.

Cheers!

Not sure what the difficulty is. I just installed uBlock Origin Updater on another machine to test, and it installed just fine. Can you be more specific about what you did, and what occurred as a result?

I’ve just registered here only to thank you for your clever and detailed instructions. It works! And I am very dull and live in Siberia. Thank you once again.
