Hello! I have recently started using Webroot but I never managed to get the Firefox extension. Did reinstall Webroot but with no luck. I have also looked for it in the add-on store but did not find it. What should I do?

HTH,

Thank you @TripleHelix for the help. I have another question if you do not mind. Is not the extension supposed to block phishing and infected sites and downloads? What I see is instead of blocking the site, the extension turns into orange. Moreover, when trying to download a malicious file (to test the functionality of the extension), the download starts and then gets “cancelled” but no notification from Webroot extension or webfilter. Is this a normal behaviour? Thank you
