Crunchyroll doesn't immediately show region blocked content after switching to another country through a VPN. In order to show the content available in the connected VPN country, this add-on adds a button that removes a cookie and then refreshes the page.
The button can be found at the top right of the page, next to the "Queue" item.

1. Connect to a specific country through your VPN.
2. Click the Refresh button.
3. Crunchyroll will now show episodes available in that country.

Risk impact

Crunchyroll VPN refresher requires some risky permissions and may not be safe to use. Exercise caution when installing this add-on. Review carefully before installing.

Risk impact measures the level of extra permissions an extension has access to. A low risk impact extension cannot do much harms, whereas a high risk impact extension can do a lot of damage like stealing your password, bypass your security settings, and access your personal data. High risk impact extensions are not necessarily malicious. However, if they do turn malicious, they can be very harmful.

Risk likelihood

Crunchyroll VPN refresher has earned a fairly good reputation and likely can be trusted.

Risk likelihood measures the probability that a Firefox add-on may turn malicious. This is determined by the publisher and the Firefox add-on reputation on Firefox Browser Add-ons, the amount of time the Firefox add-on has been around, and other signals about the Firefox add-on. Our algorithms are not perfect, and are subject to change as we discover new ways to detect malicious extensions. We recommend that you always exercise caution when installing a Firefox add-on, especially ones with higher risk impact and/or higher risk likelihood.
