I installed this addon Change Hosts 1.1.0 in firefox, and saved my preferences for hosts file in it. But when i select any host configuration from the addon it throws an error citing unable to save the configuration. What shall i do?

Moreover, out of all the definitions, atleast one has to be selected. What if i want to select none out of them? How can i do that??
