    Upgrade add ons

    Visibility: Open to anyone

      I am getting a message on my Slingbox to agree to new add ons. When I agree to this and allow it.

      I then get an error message which says " The add on downloads from this site could not be installed because it appears to be corrupt"

      So therefore I can not connect to my Slingox. So where do I go from here ?

          Hello Lloyd!


          I assume you are using Firefox? Recently, Mozilla changed to a 64bit only browser type, similar to what Google Chrome had done a few months ago. At this time, we do have a work around for this issue:


          •In the address bar type: "about:config"

          •A message will pop up for dangers of the these options agree to them.

          •Search for "xpinstall.signatures.required". It should have a value of True.

          •Right click on "xpinstall.signatures.required"

          •"Toggle" the value will change to false.

          •Relaunch Firefox


          Mozilla is currently working on a permanent fix, but this should work for you in the mean time. If you are seeing this issue in any other browser, please let us know.


          I hope this helps!!
