The addon could not be downloaded because of a connection failure

I have signin my extension and try to install using inline install but it is showing below error : the addon could not be downloaded because of a connection failure

What exactly do you mean by “inline install”?

Anyway. I have errors installing the new beta versions of my freshly signed add-ons from AMO all the time. Disabling the previous installation, restarting, then installing and enabling the new version always works.

Inline installation means I am giving one link to install the extension so ,on click extension will get installed.

You said something about downloading and renaming the file, which leads to assume you are hosting it yourself, in development probably not over https.

If you visit the DuchDuckGo homepage they offer an add-on too, but they link directly to AMO. They will have a reason to do so …

Can you provide us the https url where you have a link to the signed extension so we can debug it on our end?

This is my site link
, presently I have kept the link on Login page itself and please check the attachement for more info.

Hmmm for me it worked great! See the screenshot below.

Please go to “about:config”, switch “extensions.logging.enabled” to true, then open the console (ctrl+shift+J) and try to click back on your “Install Firefox extension”). Check the logs related to the add-on installation and reply us back with the errors you caught in the console.

Were you able to fix the issue on your end?

If so, can you provide some information to help future devs that would stumble on this post in the future?
