Important: In some cases we find that it's not possible to pin any extension in Firefox. If you are encountering this issue, confirm if this only happens with ABP. If you're only unable to pin ABP, definitely let us know. If you are unable to pin other extensions, there's likely an issue with Firefox. We recommend starting here to be sure: Manage your extensions using the extensions button in the toolbar.
