    Firefox Addon


    I have a machine with Firefox that has an addon that you can no longer get from the addon library. Is there anyway to transfer just the addon to a freshly installed firefox on a 64 bit Win 10?

    Probably not. I've lost a couple of older ones just in the upgrades of Firefox itself into the 40s, now on version 44 on Win7, Win10, Mac OS X and Linux. Ooops, just got a popup saying 44.0.1 is available.

    Never mind the addon is back in the addons library so I just downloaded it and set it up, I am sure it wasnt there before.

    I've seen that happen, some Add-ons didn't get updated by their author right away after a new version of Firefox.
