Can't install theme from the add-on site ?

Unread post by Couperin » 2018-09-03, 22:39

Reinstalling PM on one computer here, when I go to grab the Compact theme from the add-on site it tells me "origin could not be verified" ? I have permissions set to allow installs of extensions and themes from the site...so.. I am lost. This has never happened before.

Did you by chance try and use middle click or try to open link in a new tab because that won't work due to a security measure against attempted drive-by installations. This was implemented in Tycho (27).

You are only allowed to trigger an XPI install from a direct click or pasting a link.

I did check it out and the above remains valid.

Ahh it's some setting in Tab Mix Plus that blocked the downloads, now to figure out which one...
