View Full Version : [ubuntu] Add-on Install problem

September 16th, 2009, 02:38 PM
I decided to persevere. I retract the comments I made in my last post re Ubuntu not working. I found that when I came back to give it another go\ everything worked fine Including the wireless broadband. In fact the connection to my ISP was completely automatic. Unlike the Windows process where I have to launch the connection manager.
However, I'm having a problem installing the Firefox Add-on AdBlock Plus. I downloaded it and when I clicked install I got a popup telling me that Firefox has prevented Adblock Plus from asking to be installed - not a valid file type. Can anyone help with this.
PS: I think I might end up dumping windows (hope I can get Linux versions of my Family History Software (Brothers Keeper).

Firefox has preferences to block popups and warn about software that tries to install. The latter should only be warning, not stopping it, but those are the two things I would check. The first one is under Edit > Preferences > Content, Block popups. The second is under Edit > Prefs > Security.
