Issues with Beta Tester Tools on Firefox mobile

Posted

I just downloaded Firefox Mobile Beta 1 on my Droid 2. I remember seeing the "Beta Tester Tools" in an earlier build of fennec so, I tried to install it and I'm running into some issues.

I first downloaded "fennec-4.0b1.source.tar.bz2" from http://releases.mozilla.org/pub/mozilla.org/mobile/releases/latest-beta/source/. I then located "feedback@mobile.mozilla.org" in "mozilla-central/mobile/app/profile/extensions/".

I compiled the extension like I had for some of the one that I've worked on. I created a site using the guide https://developer.mozilla.org/en/Installing_Extensions_and_Themes_From_Web_Pages

and uploaded the files to my MobileMe iDisk. Everything showed up perfectly (don't mind the 2nd link, I was trying to install the Firebug beta as well).

It installed & is showing up in my Add-ons menu. The Beta icon, however, is not showing up in the Toolbar. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

mbrubeck, thank you. I was just trying to figure out if Beta Tester Tools could be installed in Firefox 4 Beta 1. I guess the Beta Tester Tools were disabled in Beta 1. Thanks for the response though.
