Privacysuite on Firefox 24.1.0


Hey guys, so i installed the new version of Slackware today. Working nicely too. One of my previously used extensions is 'Privacysuite'. Privacysuite is installable, and when i install it, it works. Once i close firefox and reopen it though, it's disabled and i'm told it isn't supported.
Is this possible to fix?

Thanks.

Thanks for the suggestion, i just tried Maskme, It unfortunately doesn't have all the features of Privacysuite.

Hello guys, if anyone else is interested in this issue. It seems Albine doesn't intend to continue development with Privacysuite, and are instead developing MaskMe instead.
MaskMe seems nothing like Privacysuite, and is not a reasonable substitute for me at least.
Albine has another extension as well though called DoNotTrackMe. This extension seems to be a good substitute for PrivacySuite. Unfortunately i don't think the settings from PrivacySuite is importable, but i don't think that's too big of an issue. I also have not tested DoNotTrackMe enough to see if the the accounts feature that was present in PrivacySuite is available in DoNotMaskMe.

Hth anyone googleing this in the future.
