Do you have "Allow mywot.com to authenticate your add-on" enabled in "Advanced" preferences?

Do you have cookies disabled in Firefox or are you using third-party software, which blocks cookies?

Heh, how do you log out of the site? :)

You disable the "Allow mywot.com to authenticate your add-on" option from the add-on preferences. Then you can log in (and out) manually whenever you prefer.

I have cookies enabled. The only add-on I have next to WOT is Adblock Plus. WOT page still shows "add-on not installed" when I disable "Allow mywot.com to authenticate your add-on".



I'm on Mac OS X Tiger & Firefox 2.0.0.6 now.

Well, that's sort of expected. If you disable that option, you don't have an add-on installed as far as the website is concerned. If you want to use any of the website features that require the add-on to be present, you need to enable it.

Well then the text (add-on not installed) doesn't make sense...

So, what do you feel would make more sense then?
