Addblock plus won't download--says it can't modify a file

I previously had Adblock Plus installed, but it stopped working several versions of Firefox (for mac) ago. The add-ons manager/extensions says I have version 2.3.2 and it is disabled. When I tried to add the latest version from the get addons page, I first get a dialog asking if I want to install the file; when I select "install now", I get a box saying that "Adblock plus could not be installed because Firefox cannot modify the necessary file" I also downloaded and installed AnonymoX, which appeared to install successfully, but I find no icons or controls, no way to start it up, control its function, or verify that it is in fact installed/working. There is no icon window at the bottom of my Firefox window (or anywhere else that I can find).
