Like others, the last month with the PIA extension has been problematic. However, for me at least, using version 2.4.3 is working without obvious errors.

And at time says clock is set to wrong time, etc. The Desktop App work well and connects without any issues, for this add-on to work, it has to be your lucky day.

They have also purchased ExpressVPN, CyberGhost, Zenmate and many VPN "Review" websites which have artificial ratings to mislead you into purchasing their products.
- by Firefox user 17060328, 2 months agoRated 5 out of 5It has worked really well until firefox for whatever reason started to put a stick in the wheel and the whole system crashed down. I felt safe exploring in other countries not feeling Google breathing up my neck. Why o why does Firefox in it's search box have google as the first choice when I fill in www. It almost seems that firefox little by little is infiltrated by this company which I try to avoid by all means.
Yuval Harari is warning us for this phenomenon.
I just hope I am wrong
Just been reading the reviews and I can only come to one conclusion. The problems people experience is not due PIA but the upgrade of Firefox. I really enjoy firefox but It doesn't help if firefox doesn't allow another layer of protection to work, actually deny it to work. Which should be my choice. Otherwise it goes in the direction of Google. Using e.g Tor browser (10 years ago) made google's hair standing up. As if I don't have the freedom to decide if I want to get my toilet paper from A because google decides I should get it from Z. Is there any concern from firefox about PIA or is it that firefox itself performs the same bullshit as Google?
In the 90ties one could do a search and have an outcome. now only selling things we don't need, poluting the world and our minds with unwanted issues. Trying to sell, sell, sell sell. And not adding anything positive than satisfying our pathetic EGO

For example "Bad Request, The referrer header is missing." would be produced on https://accounts.fedoraproject.org/ while trying to login (reminder VPN connection itself is not enabled). Disabling the plugin resolves problem.
