impossible to install themes in Cyberfox 52.7.4

Post by lukand » Wed May 16, 2018 5:26 pm

Hallo

Still for 52.7.2 version one could install any theme. Unfortunately for 52.7.4 it turned out to be impossible. The only message one can see is to install Firefox instead. What has happened and how to solve the problem?

Hi lukand

You need to install a compatible theme, make sure the theme version your installing supports 52.0 ESR branch

But there is not clear for me why the 52.7.2 could cope with whereas the newest one (52.7.4) cannot. They are both of the same branch. Aren't they?

Hi lukand

What theme are you using?
Could be the themes manifest needs updating for its version

I was trying to apply several of them. For instance 'Deepsea', 'Blue Firefox Theme' and some others. Unfortunately the 52.7.4 version does not allow to install any of them. No matter if I run Windows 8.1 or Windows 10 or even PCLinuxOS 2017.11 MATE, the outcome is the same.

Hi lukand

While we were not encountering your issue, we did discorver that Mozilla has changed the code how they read browser user-agents
causing the Cyberfox user-agent to make Mozilla addons offer get Firefox button over the install button, a default user-agent override
is in testing and will be in next browser release so not to cause the get Firefox button to show.


Best watched in full screen or download the video to watch locally.

Issue with plugins fixed, but for some reason a few are appearing as corrupt now?
