Can't get Add-ons

Unread postby ThirdTryCharm » Fri, 08 Jun 2018, 15:33

Hi All, (Ubuntu 16.04)
Lately have had to use FFx 59 for banking, but could not get the SQLite database manager, so I have just installed the latest PaleMoon.

When I go to the Mozilla addon site and pull up the SQLite Manager it says "Not for quantum" even though I have accessed the site with Palemoon 27.9.2

I am guessing PM has been set to fake it as FFx, but that is now preventing me from getting the Database Manager. Kinda Catch-22?

What do I need to do to get PM to install the SQlite manager?

What user agent override are you using for addons.mozilla.org?
Linux Mint 18.3 Cinnamon (64-bit)
Windows 7 (64-bit) (Sometimes)
Windows 10 (64-bit) (Sometimes)
We are our choices.

(To check the user agent override you're using, go to about:config in the address bar, accept the risk of dragons, and search for this preference:

.) I have it set to

Code: Select all

Mozilla/5.0 (Macintosh; Intel Mac OS X 10.8; rv:27.9) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/27.9
and I can install SQLite Manager just fine.

This is almost what I have - basically the default setting, minus the trailing "(Pale Moon)" at the end. It works just fine with that UA.

Oh, that's right, I forgot! AMO wasn't working for me, I suppose a few days ago, and I had to remove the Pale Moon slice at the end of my UA to get it to work.
