Yes, it’s that time of year again. And I’m not talking about Christmas. Firefox just brought out yet another update which means that the plugins aren’t working again.
We are going to address the issue with Mozilla, but here is a quick fix for now (Thanks Andy!).
“If you feel that you trust all your FF extensions, then you can try the following (AT YOUR OWN RISK) in order to force Perapera to be enabled again.

Restart the browser.”
This should get things working again while we get the plugin signed and fix some other problems.
Thanks as always for your support!
