I am getting the message to restart firefox under Tools, Addons. With that all the extensions below display that they're going to be uninstalled when firefox will be restarted. Though they never get so.

I tried installing flashgot meanwhile it won't get installed, it just magically disappears after i restart Firefox.

Xmarks won't get enabled. Free Download Manager's addon won't disable.

I double checked if firefox was closing properly, it does closes properly. I tried Safe mode, all options ticked. Deleted my profile for the sake to bring back health to Firefox. I even downloaded Firefox 4, but none of it worked.

Dear members of the mozilla support-forum,

since x64 OS's are more and more widely used, i thought it would be a good idea, to use a x64 version of firefox. I thought, the browser will run a bit faster than his smaller colleague for the x86 32Bit Version. Is this right?

But at the moment i think it is no good idea to use the x64 browser, because there are nearly NO plug-in's for it.

Or i am too dumb to find them.

I'm very disappointed and hope, anyone can "solace" me a bit.

Where the hell are all the x64 plug-ins? The browser without plug-ins is not very usable.
