  1. From the Open menu, click the "Options" button ("Preferences" on macOS).
  2. Open "Privacy & Security" from the left side menu, and click the "Security Devices" button.
  3. This will bring up a "Device Manager" window. Click the "Load" button.
  4. Enter "eLWISE PKCS#11 Module" for the "Module Name" and click the "Browse" button.

    * If you are using macOS, type "/usr/local/eSK/pkcs11" directly in "Module filename" section and click the "OK" button.

  5. The file path for the module depends on which version of Firefox you are using. Based on your operating system and Firefox version, select the "PKCS11.dll" in the appropriate folder (see below) and click "Open".
