LibX Virginia Tech Edition is a browser extension that provides direct access to Virginia Tech library resources. It features:
If Firefox displays a message "To protect your computer, Firefox prevented this site... from installing software on your computer.", press the button labelled "Edit Options..." and click "Allow" add www.lib.vt.edu to the list of websites from which extensions may be installed. Then click "Ok" and visit the "Install" link again.
The latest version of Firefox disables unsigned extensions. Firefox also has a many-months backlog of extensions waiting for approval, including LibX. Until this approval is granted, the default configuration of Firefox will disable LibX.
Workaround: Go to about:config and search for xpinstall.signatures.required and toggle it to false.
