Some users of the Firefox extension may encounter this error:

Error in getValue: [Exception… "Component returned failure code: 0x8000ffff (NS_ERROR_UNEXPECTED) [nsIPrefBranch.getComplexValue]" nsresult: "0x8000ffff (NS_ERROR_UNEXPECTED)" location: "JS frame :: chrome://socialfixer/content/prefman.js :: <TOP_LEVEL> :: line 18" data: no]

This error only exists in the version currently available on the Mozilla Add-On Directory. This version is out-dated, and Mozilla is refusing to update it because of a few problems they want fixed in my source. I'm working on that.

The fix is to install the current version from, which will solve the problem.
