In Firefox, once you download the .xpi file, you will be prompted to authorize the installation process. To see if the process was successful, navigate to the Add-ons panel via the tools menu and you should see the extension name in the Add-ons Manager.
In case Media Hint interferes with the performance of other websites, you can easily access the management panel and disable / enable the add-on with a simple mouse click (the effect is immediate and you do not have to restart the browser).

You can disable and enable the add-on within the same area.
