I had used Neon for about a month in a virtual machine to make sure it suited my workflow.
Today, I decided to make the switch.
After installing it, all looked well. I started adding scripts and software all without problems until I came to Firefox. I succesfully installed Firefox but was unable to add addons. It did look like a network error (unable to connect with add-ons site). I did try changing a few settings in firefox and in the network connection (proxy, disable ipv6, etc.) to no avail.
I then thought the issue may have been with firefox and installed chromium. Strangely enough, I have a similar issue with chromium, here the error is that the download of the add-on is blocked.
Both firefox and chromium work as browsers without seeming issues.
What gives? I have no such issue with Neon installed in the virtual machine having a NAT network connection thru the host. I did re-check that.
Unfortunately I have limited time to further investigate besides being at a total loss as to what the issue is.
Any help is appreciated or I will have to stick to using my Debian, OpenBox, Awesome WM machine.
