Manual Installation

Step 1:

Locate this directory: 'Browser'\bin\chrome where 'Browser' is the installation directory for the version of Mozilla you're using. On Windows systems, this will typically be "Program Files\MozillaXX", with XX representing the release number.

Create a subdirectory called "dertandembrowser" and unzip the Der Tandem Browser archive file into it (...\bin\chrome\dertandembrowser).  Be sure to use the option to preserve the directory structure when decompressing the zip file (check "use folder names" if using WinZip). Verify that  two subdirectories are created: 'content' and 'dtbserver' .

Step 2:

If installing DTB for the first time...

In the 'chrome' directory (Program Files\'Browser'\bin\chrome),  find the file named "installed-chrome.txt" and open it using a text editor, like Notepad. At the bottom of the file, append a  new line with the following text:


The next time you open Mozilla, Der Tandem Browser  should be installed. A chat area/control panel will appear at  the bottom of the browser, and there will be a menu item for displaying/hiding the DTB bar under the View > Show/Hide submenu.

To Uninstall

If you need to uninstall it, delete the 'dertandembrowser' directory and its contents. Then edit these three files and remove the lines containing "dertandembrowser" if present:
