    Slingbox update


      My slingbox wanted to download an update. Message states will not download as file is corrupt. Says to check browser. What does that mean?

          Hello Grandollie!


          Are you currently using Mozilla Firefox? I ask because recently, this changed to a 64bit only browser type, similar to what Google Chrome had done a few months ago. If so, you can use the steps below to work around 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 not using Firefox, please let us know which browser you are using.


          I hope this helps!!
