Installing a Pin4Ever-Compatible Browser

To install the Pin4Ever program and use the Pinterest tools, you will need to first install preferably the Basilisk browser or the SeaMonkey browser version 2.39 or earlier for Macs.

We would love to be able offer our helpful Pinterest tools for use in other browsers, and on phones and tablets, but Basilisk and maybe SeaMonkey is the only available platform for creating these tools right now that we know of.

Pin4Ever can read the data (images and text for pin descriptions, links, etc.) in your existing “Pin4Ever-data” backup folder no matter which web browser you use, so you will keep the same Pin4Ever backup information when switching from another browser to Basilisk or SeaMonkey.

Basilisk can be installed on Windows and Linux computers and laptops and SeaMonkey can be installed on WindowsMac, and Linux computers and laptops. Here is the link to install:


Installing Pin4Ever with Basilisk or SeaMonkey

Once you have the Basilisk or SeaMonkey browser on your computer, you are ready to install and use the Pin4Ever program.

1. Open a Basilisk or SeaMonkey browser window, and return to the Pin4Ever website at 

2. Click to check the box to agree to the Terms, then click the green “Install Pin4Ever” button.

3. Click “Allow” on the security pop-up box towards the top of your screen.

You will see the Pin4Ever toolbar appear at the top of the Basilisk or SeaMonkey browser window upon successful installation.

4. To activate the Pin4Ever tools (and start your one week Free Trial if you are a first-time user) go to the Pinterest website in a Basilisk or SeaMonkey window, and log in to your Pinterest account.

Pin4Ever Program & Browser History

Pin4Ever was originally launched as a downloadable Java program for computers in September of 2012, which allowed customers to save a backup copy of their Pinterest boards and pins to their own computers. We added an Android phone version of the Pin4Ever backup soon after.

Over time, based on customer requests and our efforts to anticipate and create the tools a Pinterest pinner most needs, we added the Bulk Editing tools (Move, Copy, Delete, and Rearrange multiple pins in one step), Pin Anything, Bulk Upload of images, Power Follow, and several other tools. To allow us to create these tools, the Pin4Ever program was rewritten as a Firefox browser extension or add-on, which was compatible with PCs, Macs, and Linux computers.

The Firefox 57 update was released on November 14, 2017. It prevented Pin4Ever’s program and tools from working properly in that browser, which we had previously recommended.

Many software developers and computer professionals called the update Firefox’s “death” or “suicide,” since it prevented thousands of programs which people enjoyed and depended upon from functioning. This eliminated a major reason why people chose to use the Firefox browser in the past.

Pin4Ever is unable to work in the newer Firefox 57 WebExtensions as they are much more limited and can only do what Chrome extensions do.  There is no way to rewrite Pin4Ever to work this way and continue to offer the same tools we have now.

After that Firefox update, the Waterfox and Palemoon browsers remained compatible, and allowed us to continue to offer the Pin4Ever tools for Pinterest. Over time, changes to the Waterfox and Palemoon browsers also prevented them from working with Pin4Ever.

Thank You to Our Customers!

We appreciate your support of Pin4Ever these past seven years, and we look forward to continuing to offer helpful Pinterest tools for you to use in the future.

Firefox will update to version 57 on November 14th, 2017. Pin4Ever and many other Firefox extensions will no longer work in Firefox after this Firefox update.  To keep the Pin4Ever program and Pinterest tools working after the upcoming Firefox update, you will need to choose one of these three options...

Pinterest has just announced that the image-sharing website now has over 100 million users! And in 3 years, Pin4Ever's Pinterest tools have helped our customers save, edit and upload over 182 million pins! Pinterest has just announced that the image-sharing website now has over 100 million users! Congratulations, Pinterest!

When I first discovered Pinterest in the summer of 2012, it took very little time for me to realize what a helpful and fun website it was. Pinterest allowed me to organize my web bookmarks in a logical, visual, easily-found way.  Over time, Pinterest added more great features, like the ability to search for pins and boards that shared a topic of interest.

As I got hooked on pinning, I heard stories of people losing boards or whole accounts to hackers, or accidentally deleting them.  Not wanting to lose all the wonderful ideas and information I had collected, I had the idea to create Pin4Ever to save a backup copy of all the pins, likes and boards from any Pinterest account.

The Pin4Ever app and website was launched in September 2012. Just like Pinterest, Pin4Ever has grown over the years. As of September 2015, three years after its debut, Pin4Ever has saved, edited or uploaded over 182 million pins for our customers.

Pin4Ever has added many unique Pinterest tools, besides the original account backups, and some of them were created based on suggestions from our customers.

We at Pin4Ever would like to thank Pinterest for creating such an awesome website and service, which led to the launching and success of our own business creating Pinterest tools.

And we’d especially like to thank Pin4Ever’s customers for using our free and paid Pinterest tools, and enthusiastically supporting our business.
