Hi Mr. Relic,I did some searching and could not find anything that does the same thing but since the last version is not compatible with the newer version of Firefox I am sure they will be coming out with a new version. One way to keep from going to the phony sites is to keep the HOST file up-to-date that usually helps.

Thanks for posting here on Questions and Answers I hope my answer has helped you.

I got my SpoofStick to work using the Nightly Tester Tools add-on in Firefox. It can make some but not all incompatible extensions compatible with the newest version of Firefox. It puts a "make compatible" button in the add-ons window that you get from Tools -> Add-ons.  It also does other things.

I'm lost seems I don't know what I'm doing. I tried downloading spoofstick and all I get is the install window and then says not compatible. I finally was able to download the file from another site but the same thing happens. I have the nightly testing tools but how do I get spoofstick into the add-ons window so I can click the compatible button ?????

I already had spoofstick installed but not working when I tried using Nightly Tester Tools. If you don't have it already installed, then there might be a problem in reinstalling it in the new version of Firefox where it is not compatible.

I checked the site out but have the same problem, can't install the program to begin with. The site info is from 2005.  Thanks anyway.

Well, It was worth a try sorry it did not work. It is a shame that they haven't upgraded spoofstick since 2005. Maybe if you un-installed Firefox and then installed an earlier version so spoofstick worked and then installed that nightly tester tools thing and then started upgrading one version of firefox at a time it might work.

Oh jheart good try at trying to help it was a learning experience.....
