Enable Firefox Compatibility Mode to install add-ons from Mozilla add-ons website

NOTE: You can search for web extensions available from the PureOS repo by running apt search webext in Tilix.

Open PureBrowser and type about:config into location bar and hit Enter, a warning will popup:

ff1

Click I'l be careful, I promise! button, and type useragent.compat into the search bar, then double-click the preference to change its value to true:

ff2

In recent versions of PureBrowser this is already set to true so you don't have to change it.

You will also have to change your useragent string to install Firefox addons.

To do this, open about:config, right-click, select New -> String , enter general.useragent.override, and enter Mozilla/5.0 (X11; Linux x86_64; rv:60.0) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/68.0.2 as a string value. Then, click "Okay" and reload the page.
