Popup touting browser extension.

I'm constantly getting this popup on the web page.

>Protect yourself
>from unsafe websites
>
>Award winning security extension for your browser
>Add to Firefox — It's Free

I'd love to. I miss the browser extension. But alas, MyWoT is not multi-process compatible yet, so I can't. I need multi-process just a little more than the MyWoT browser extension.

Is there a way to turn this popup off? A cookie, an account setting, anything?

I'm also finding the pop-up really annoying.

There's a bar at the bottom of every page with the "Add to Firefox" button, should I wish to use it. I'd appreciate not have the pop-up pushed in my face, too.

[/quote]Although I'm using Firefox with the WOT add-on installed on my mac OS desktop, the pop-up that I see at the bottom of the browser window has an "Install for Android" button. &nbsp; :-(

I own no "Android device" nor do I expect to obtain any.

I keep getting this too and have to reload pages just to clear it from view since it causes the page to not scroll.
This is annoying.

I get that all the time on my Android phone, even though Chrome for Android cannot run the add-on.
Also, the new header bar is a lot harder to navigate on an Android touch screen than the old one, on account of the thinner header.
Perhaps it is time to totally gut out the CSS and replace it with a fully responsive version, with a menu button on small screens.
Note responsive means one set of CSS for all devices, resizing dynamically to fit the screen size.
