Installation Steps

In order to install the CROKODIL add-on in your Firefox Browser, open the link you have been sent for example per email. Or if you have been sent the add-on per email, then open the file attached to the email. The following pop-up window should show up as shown below. Click on „Install Now“. Alternatively, you can save the file onto your computer and then drag-and-drop this file onto an open browser window. This same pop-up window should then automatically open up. Finally, you need to restart your browser.

Install add-on

After restarting your browser, the following window will pop up. Check the box and click on ok.

The add-on will then ask for your login data. If no such window pops up, then minimize your browser window, perhaps the pop-up window is hidden behind other open windows. After installing the add-on, you will find CROKODIL in your browser's menu bar. To hide or show the add-on in the link sidebar of your browser, click on „Seitenleiste sichtbar“.

Please note: Firefox 4 does not show a menu bar. In order to show the menu bar, click on „Firefox“ → Settings → Menu bar in the uppermost left corner of the browser.

You can deactivate the CROKODIL add-on in „Tools“ → „Add-ons“ → „Disable“. This way, you can disable the add-on temporarily without de-installing it. The java login window will no longer pop-up when the add-on is disabled. You can re-enable the add-on anytime.
