Indeed, Firefox 57 deprecated all current (XUL) addons and adopted a new WebExtensions API used in Chrome. We're working on a new iGetter (Mac) release that will support Firefox 57, but other bugs in High Sierra postpone the new version. We already released a compatible version for Windows and I hope that Mac version will not be delayed too much.

You can also add a new URL by using some of the following methods:
1. Copy some link in your browser then paste it in iGetter by menu Edit > Paste (Cmd+V).
2. Drag&drop some download link on the iGetter Dock icon.

If you can't wait the iGetter v2.9.6 release, you may install the following extension which is included in the Windows version of iGetter v2.7.5. Don't forget to remove this extension when you update iGetter to version 2.9.6 on your Mac, otherwise you may get two iGetter contextual menus.

1. Download the following file and unzip (double click) it in your user "Downloads" folder:
http://www.igetter.net/igetter_messaging_host_fx_57.zip

The json file points to the "/Applications/iGetter 2.9.5/" folder. If iGetter is installed somewhere else, then you need to edit that file (it's in plain text) with the path to where iGetter is installed.

Then in your Terminal app issue the following one line command:

mkdir -p ~/Library/Application\ Support/Mozilla/NativeMessagingHosts; cp ~/Downloads/com.presenta* ~/Library/Application\ Support/Mozilla/NativeMessagingHosts

2. Download iGetter 2.7.5 WebExtension and drag&drop it on Firefox addons page:
http://www.igetter.net/igetterext@presenta.net.xpi

3. When prompted enable the addon:


You should see these iGetter CM commands:


To disable iGetter integration temporarily, use contextual menu command "iGetter" > "Disable Integration". This command takes effect immediately.

Thanks, the work-around worked perfectly.

Looking forward to the new native version.
