I just upgraded to Firefox 5 and I cannot get my old addons working even thought I got "extensions.checkCompatibility" set to false. How to bypass?

You're using an incomplete preference - it is missing 5.0.

Try using this extension to override compatibility.

Then you can report which extension work in 5.0 and which don't work completely & tell the developer which features aren't working.

I figured it out!

I had to create a new boolean called "extensions.checkCompatibility.5.0" then set it false.
