Version 9.1 914.5 KiB Works with Firefox for Android 48.0 and later, Firefox 48.0 and later

FoxFilter v9.1

Thanks for choosing FoxFilter! We have been working hard on the latest version that works seemlessly with Mozilla Firefox and Google Chrome. It is nice to focus on the quality of a new unified version of FoxFilter, which makes it much easier for us to support our customers and keep up with technology changes with both browsers. We have also updated the look to a more modern design, but tried to keep the layout and functionality the same for our customers.

If you have any issues with your settings from the previous version not carrying over, we apologize. Please be assured that any existing subscription that you currently have has not been affected or lost. You may just need to re-enter your registered email address and registration code within FoxFilter Settings (right-click on any web page to access this feature). If you need to retrieve your current registration code, please use the link below, which will allow you to enter your registered email address and get an email with your current registration code:

http://inspiredeffect.com/FoxFilter/v7/preferences/ForgotRegCode.aspx

Once you have entered your email address and registration code and clicked the 'confirm subscription' button, you should see a button labeled "Continue to Settings". Once you are within Settings, you will see a link labeled "restore your settings?". This is helpful if you would like to recover your FoxFilter Settings from our secured cloud backup.

Please give version 9 a try and let us know if you see any issues or have any questions. As always, you can email us at foxfilter@inspiredeffect.com. We do our best to respond promptly.

Key Updates:

* Hosted Settings - You can now manage hosted settings within FoxFilter. You no longer need to manage them from our hosted page. If using one of the hosted versions, any changes made locally to your FoxFilter Settings are copied to our secured cloud repository and shared with each computer/account sharing your subscription. Please note that ONLY your FoxFilter settings are copied to our secured cloud repository. We never track any browsing activity nor copy any personal data.

* Tools menu - This feature has been replaced. You can now just right-click on any web page and select FoxFilter Settings from the popup menu.

* Chrome users - Please remember to right-click on the FoxFilter icon in the upper-right section of the browser (aka browser action button) and select 'Hide in Chrome menu'. This will help prevent FoxFilter from being uninstalled. Recent changes to Google Chrome prevent this icon from being hidden without manual intervention by the user.

* New design - Last, but not least is our new user experience. As mentioned above, this will help set the stage for our Firefox Android features which are coming soon!
