fossamail thunderbird extension installation issue...

Unread post by Rob Scouse » 2018-02-18, 21:20

Hello Pale Moon Forum Members,
Let me preface this POST by saying I am new to Pale Moon , Fossamail, but have used Thunderbird,Firefox without major problems,crashes....
:arrow: :coffee:
that being said...I would like to know how I may install thunderbird (or firefox?) extensions in Fossamail (or Pale Moon browser??)??
There seems to be no way of installing said thunderbird extensions from the extension website...so is there a way of "manually" installing the "xpi" extension files downloaded from FF,Thunderbird extension website?? :?: :?: :?:

I appreciate any,all replies!

I think one possibility for FM is to download the xpi files for thunderbird, open the add-on manager in FM, click on the gear, and then choose "Install Add-on from File...".

Anyway, what is the problem with searching the add-ons directly from the add-on manager of FM?

Not sure what add on's your wanting to use but I have a few from Thunderbird that work just fine.
