McAfee SafeKey Not Working In Firefox

SafeKey works fine in IE, but can't get it to show up in Firefox. Site Adviser is up and running on Firefox.

I also have followed the instructions provided (From this FAQ: and SafeKey doesn't show up in the list of add-ons, recently updated or not. I also updated McAfee after it wasn't on the list, but that did not help.

Your help is appreciated.

Re: McAfee SafeKey Not Working In Firefox

As the thread you posted in was old I gave you your own and re-titled the post to be more obvious.

Whilst we have a resident technician who may spot this, it is a holiday so I can't guarantee him answering here.

Did you look in Recent Updates in Firefox Add-ons?

Yep, checked recently updated, but not there. I'll check in with tech support after the holidays unless someone answers here. Thanks!
