The redirect to Chrome Web Store related to Firefox 72 is fixed. No other action than re-adding the extension from the Avast Passwords UI is needed. Thanks for your notification!

Hi,

I have a problem when I click on "Add Extension" under: Preferences>Browser>Add Extension (under the Firefox icon), it will redirect me to the chrome extension  ???

here is a post on the Windows side of the forum with a user who had the same problem & an Avast member resolved it.

I tried the suggested link by Jeff308, in that thread:
A temp fix for you all,

https://pamcdn.avast.com/pamcdn/extensions/install/win/extension/en.html?p_pei=0dzUXkbPWP3fZYkoPYnyjFfLYdo9qABrjDe48OAx&cn=User%20extension%20install&cs=Settings&lang=en-us#firefox

but I get the error user, bob3160 got in that thread.
I even get this error that prompts me to reinstall the extension.


my software:
Firefox 76.0.1 (64-bit)
macOS Catalina 10.15.4
Avast Passwords 2.6.7.4378 (stable)

any help is appreciated :) thanks.  8)

@Taric
Have you tried this?

As you can see, it works for me.

@bob3160

Thanks, I didn't see that, or did not check for that but I went to Chrome instead of Firefox, and Avast Passwords works.
Though now that I went and checked for that feature, after having installed Chrome and uninstalled Firefox, I am able to see it for Chrome.
Appreciate it. 8)
