Firefox permissions issues

Sometimes, Firefox requires you to explicitly grant permissions to run the extension. If you don't see any of the "Add-ons" buttons mentioned in the documentation, or are missing new function, this may be your problem.

In the past, I have seen Firefox display a green dot under the “Extensions” tool bar button, as shown below, when user action on permissions is required. If you see the green dot, read about the green dot.

More recently, it seems that they have switched to a different way of signalling the need to update permissions. Instead, you might see a yellow triangle overlaying the “Open application menu” to the right of the Extensions button. If you see that, read about the yellow triangle.
