wot FF multiprocess?

Post by larkinwot » Thu Nov 03, 2016 7:50 pm

Hello: does WOT have a firefox multiprocess-compatible extension yet? If so, where might I find it (link)? I went to the WOT download site and downloaded addon-3456-latest.xpi . Install failure (it seems sorta dumb, but do I need to start FF in safe mode to install this xpi?) . Mozilla apparently no longer has WOT in its extensions library. And, I did search the FAQs before posting. FF stable 49.0.2 w7pro. Thank you.

Mozilla removed WOT from their extension library for privacy violations. It is no longer possible to install WOT in Firefox, and existing installations will probably be disabled in the future.

There is currently a controversy as to whether or not WOT has sold user data, and as such it appears as though the browser vendors have banned the add-on. The MyWOT Team has failed to explain what is going on.

Please test whether the newest WOT extension for Firefox is compatible. See
