Quick fix for Firefox 43 update

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.

Go to about:config and enter this in search:
xpinstall.signatures.required

Double-click the value to toggle it to false.

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!

  1. I cannot get Perapera to work in Firefox 43. The icon is there but it doesn’t change color when I click on it. I changed the value of the “xpinstall.signatures.required” to false, but to no avail. Rocket Chinese tech support claims that Perapera works fine for them in FF 43.

    I had better luck with the Chrome version but when Rocket Chinese has a blue background, as with the conversation transcripts, Perapera doesn’t work. If the background is white, it works fine.

    Zhong wen works fine in Firefox but it is not as accurate as Perapera, so it is very discouraging not to be able to fully use Perapera in either FF or Chrome.

    Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

    1. In the Perapera options, try setting the Enable mode to something other than “All browsers.” There’s a bug with that particular mode.

  2. Firefox 43.0.3 : PeraPera Chinese doesn’t show anymore the Chinese-French file in the Dictionaries tab. Downloading again the dictionary doesn’t solve the problem.
