When installing add ons i get error 228 the fixes in help do not work, still getting the error. firefox 3.6.3 OS X 10.5, any other fixes?
I was trying to install the DOM inspector and Firebug. Firefox 3.6.3 in OSX 10.5 Leopard. Just to make sure I tried a couple of other plug ins. Each time error 228 comes up. I already tried the fixes in the help with no success.
