What You'll Need
In order to create your Firefox VPN connection, you’ll need:
- The most up-to-date version of Firefox. This is important; Firefox has changed from the old Add-Ons system to a new library of Extensions, so older versions may not work as described here.
- The app for your desktop computer. Many browser extensions need the corresponding desktop application to be installed, or they won’t work.
- An account with a VPN provider. We recommend that you sign up for your account before you begin. Remember to check your email and click the confirmation link to verify your account.
We’re going to use ExpressVPN to demonstrate how to add an extension, but the process will be very similar for most other popular providers. If you don’t already have a VPN account, ExpressVPN offers a free 7 day trial if you use the link within the extension to sign up. We’ll point it out when we get to that step.
