How to install the Click 2 Dial add-on?

Zoiper's installer will ask you if you would like to enable Click 2 Dial during the very first steps of the installation.*
The version to be installed may vary, depending on the official release date for your operating system.

* Firefox, Opera and Chrome users: skip this step as the add-ons are now available in the extension stores!

** For some browsers you might need to enable the addons manually after the installation.

Firefox

The latest build of the Click2Dial addon for Firerox is available in the Firefox Addons store.

Using older versions:

Old versions(1.2 or below) will need to be activated manually, even if you have allowed its installation during the Zoiper installation process, because Firefox does not allow unsigned add-ons.

* Enabling unsigned addons is dangerous and not recommended!

To manually enable a non-signed addon you needto run Firefox, type

in the address bar, then promise that you will be careful.

Then search for

xpinstall.signatures.required

change the value to false.
