With Firefox version 66.0.3, you probably found that all your add-ons have disappeared.
Firefox disables them and tells you that they are not compatible.
Not to worry: There’s a super-easy fix to get them back.
And you don’t have to reinstall them or anything…
These days, it seems that Google’s Chrome is the most popular browser out there. Worldwide, Mozilla Firefox is the second most-used web browser.
There are reasons why Firefox is still fairly popular, especially the Add-on system.
Add-ons let you customize your browser. For example, you can get an Add-On that makes your tabs pretty, or another that blocks ads on web pages.
Of course, there is a problem with Add-ons: they break. When new versions of Firefox are released, it may take awhile before the people who create the Add-On you are using update it to work perfectly with the newest version of Firefox.
And that’s when the fun starts! Firefox locks up, Firefox crashes, and you’re left throwing your hands in the air.
Not to worry – there’s a very quick and easy way to “fix” problems with your Add-ons!
Most likely, you have at least the Java runtime environment installed on your puter. And, if you’re using Firefox, you may have some strange add-ons installed that just won’t go away.
With every Java update you install, yet another “Java Console” add-on may be installed. The problem is, all you can do is disable them. There is no way to actually uninstall older versions of this add-on. Worse yet, you don’t even really need the add-on in the first place!
So, if you have multiple Java Console add-ons sitting in your Firefox, how do you get rid of the darn things?
