thanks boba, ive used it in the past, its not the add on not working per se,its supposed to be, it passed the compatability test but its disabling itself.
i updated to the newer version of the add on but still no good,
so for the time being i have rolled back to 17.1
luckily i had my firefox profile backed up and i was able to copy out the earlier version of anonymox as the newer version wouldnt work with 17.1,
im sure it will get fixed soon as more people using it report it
i use this one to keep my add ons working whatever the version of FF https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/fir...compatibility/
