Issue installing addons in Firefox

I just switched to Firefox as my main browser, but there’s a problem I’ve been having with it. Whenever I try to install an extension from the Mozilla addons website (where you click add to Firefox), a puzzle piece symbol appears in the search box next to the shield and lock, but no install window pops up and after clicking “Add to Firefox”, the button shows a loading symbol for a few seconds, and then goes back to saying “Add to Firefox”, not doing anything. Even installing from a file doesn’t work. Is there a way to solve this issue? Responses are always appreciated.


I Can’t reproduce this. Are you using the flatpak version?

Thanks Tom.

I reinstalled Firefox and installed it from the command line and now I can install extensions. Guess it was a flatpak issue,
