How to install NAV browser extension for Pale Moon

Pale Moon is based on the Firefox source code and looks exactly the same except it is tweaked for superior speed.

Now for example, if I install Internet Download Manager, it doesn't install its addon for Pale Moon so what I do is, manually browse to Internet Download Manager's folder and locate the *.xpi file then install it.

But with NAV, I wasn't able to find any XPI files to manually install in Pale Moon can this be fixed please or if you can tell me how can I manually install the Firefox browser protection add on but for my Pale Moon?

Thanks

Hi,

While Pale Moon may be similar, it is not one of the supported browsers.

Only Firefox, Chrome and Internet Explorer are supported.

Re: How to install NAV browser extension for Pale Moon

I just installed Firefox and upon its startup, the Norton Vulnerability Scanner was automatically installed. I then tried to manually look for its *.xpi file but couldn't locate it :( what the heck is this...where is it :thumbdown:

To add another brick to the pile - x64 isn't currently supported.

Re: How to install NAV browser extension for Pale Moon

Someone posted a solution on the Pale Moon Forums but do you think that would yield the same effect as the Norton Vulnerability Scanner that NAV usually installs in Firefox ?

Posted by BlackLab:

Thanks for the hint/prompt Moonchild - that worked pretty easily!  :D  Still on a steep learning curve with Add-on construction here, taking simple ones apart, reading "make your own Add-on" tutorials, altering small items, putting Humpty-dumpty back together again, etc!  :roll:

Procedure with latest Norton Internet Security (NIS 2013 v20.3.1.22) installed:

Locate the Norton Vulnerability Protection (NVP) Firefox Plugin folder which is called "IPSFFPlgn" in Norton NIS application:
My IPSFFPlgn location - C:\ProgramData\Norton\{0C55C096-0F1D-4F28-AAA2-85EF591126E7}\NIS_20.2.1.22\IPSFFPlgn
NOTE: ProgramData is a hidden folder - ensure "show hidden files and folders" selected in Control Panel > Folder Options

  1. Copy "IPSFFPlgn" folder to Desktop (it's an ordinary folder - the "unpacked" version of the add-on (flat file structure) as Moonchild suggested).
  2. Open "IPSFFPlgn" folder, Select All (however you normally select multiple files) > Right-click (on any of the 5 highlighted files) > Select "Send To" > Choose "Compressed (zipped) Folder" option. Rename the newly created "xxxxxx.zip" folder as "IPSFFPlgn.xpi" (or "any name.xpi").
  3. Drag new IPSFFPlgn.xpi folder onto Desktop. Close copy of original IPSFFPlgn folder, delete or keep as you please.
  4. Install NVP Add-on "IPSFFPlgn.xpi" into Pale Moon by normal methods, either drag "IPSFFplgn.xpi" onto any open Pale Moon window, or in Pale Moon Add-ons Manager > Click Gearwheel symbol (top right) > Select "Install Add-on From File..."

BTW: Not actually seen Norton Vulnerability Protection (NVP) working in Firefox - assume it's similar concept to Mozilla/Google Safebrowsing?

The reason I am asking, is because another user commented:

 

Probably not as good as SafeBrowsing (esp. the V2 version as applied to Chrome). If it does do anything, it's likely to be based on outdated data but it'll probably incorporate scareware tactics designed to keep you addicted to Symantec.

 

Maybe I'm wrong, perhaps it would be useful if you had older, vulnerable browser versions installed.

Re: How to install NAV browser extension for Pale Moon

Your welcome to try but please be aware that Norton Antivirus does not contain the toolbar in the first place.

Starting with NAV 2013, when you install it, it also installs the standalone identity safe program, but that is a totally seperate program and it's different then the one that comes as part of NIS.

The only way to update that version is through a supported browser, you need the toolbar to appear in a browser before you can update it.

Also, I don't know to much about the toolbar but I thought the main files were the coFFPlgn.dll files.

see post 11 here.
