Installation

Mozilla Firefox

There are two options for installing Moonlight in Firefox.

Option 1: Go to the download page of the Moonlight website and download and install the xpi file.

Option 2: Install the firefox-moonlight package from AUR.

Google Chrome

Installing extensions from outside the Chrome Web Store is a hidden option in newer versions of Chrome.

  1. Download the Moonlight package for Chrome.
  2. Make sure no page is currently opened inside Chrome that is trying to load Silverlight/Moonlight.
  3. Go to the extensions page.
  4. Enable 'Developer mode' (top right).
  5. Now drag and drop the extension file you downloaded in step 1 to the extensions page.
  6. You can now turn off developer mode if you wish.
