GoogleSharing - fix certificate issue with update

If you've been using the excellent GoogleSharing privacy add-on for Firefox by Moxie Marlinspike, which helps protect your privacy when you're doing a search via Google, you may have noticed a problem with using it last week, with an error about "invalid security certificate" saying it's not trusted:

That was due to French registrar revoking the site's SSL certificate without prior notice or proper timely explanation.

So a tip: you can fix this problem and get GoogleSharing working properly again by upgrading to the latest version of the extension (even though Firefox doesn't notify you that an upgrade is available, that one worked for me).
