3.    From the options button next to the add-on search field, select "Install Add-on From File..." and locate the downloaded add-on.



Actual results:

My OS is Ubuntu 16.04 LTS and I'm trying to install importexporttools-3.2.4.1-sm+tb.xpi. The instruction in no way match what I see on the monitor. I place the add-on name in the search box and it is not found. There is no way to browse files and no instructions as to where the file is suppose to be. The file is downloaded and imy download directory.


Expected results:
