I'm trying to install the firebug addon in Firefox version 3.6.13 and get an error that reads:

"Firefox could not install the file at https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/downloads/latest/1843/addon-1843-latest.xpi?src=external-getfirebug

because: Unexpected installation error Review the error console log for more details. -203"

Error Log screen looks something like this: Error: e.location.getItemLocation(e.id) is null Source File: file:///C:/Program%20Files/Mozilla%20Firefox/components/nsExtensionManager.js Line: 3533

Code detail looks like this:

     var itemLocation = e.location.getItemLocation(e.id).QueryInterface(Ci.nsILocalFile);


Anyone know how to resolve this?

I just noticed this morning that the lower tool bar, including weatherfox, Hebrew Calendar, and several other add-ons, has completely disappeared. Perhaps it's a matter of having inadvertently clicked on something one day when not paying attention. When I checked under Firefox preferences a little while ago, I went to <manage add-ons> and saw all installed add-ons were still installed. I cannot find a way to restore the lower tool bar displaying them.

After doing a back-up, I opened Time Machine to see whether an earlier Firefox homepage included the lower bar. I don't know whether I did not go back far enough or whether Firefox is somehow opening to a new, unintended default without that lower bar, no matter how far back I go.

Meanwhile, in the process of writing this, I returned to Firefox Preferences and now the general preferences dialogue box is completely screwed up, as though the size of the contents of that dialogue box had grown, in both dimensions, so it no longer fits within the box and parts of it cannot be accessed. It is truncated, in other words, both at the right side and along the bottom. I can no longer even access the add-ons section. The last thing visible at the bottom of that box is the very top part of the line of text that appears to read: "Choose preferences for your add-ons." It's as though someone had come along with an Exacto and sheared away the bottom part of that line of text. And then there's the at the lower left corner. Along the right side of the box, under "Home Page," there are three buttons: <Use Current Pages>, <Use Bookmark>, and <Restore to Defau>, which is the point at which the text ends.

What the heck is going on? Now it's not only a matter of restoring the lower bar on my Firefox page, with add-ons displayed, but apparently I need to figure out how to resize the general preferences dialogue box, as well. I just checked: The other preferences dialogue boxes appear to fit correctly.

I use a Mac PowerBook G4 with Firefox version 3.6.13.

I could not install the flash player on my computer (linux / gnu), then the software maker told me to copy some file to the plug-ins that do not match. Could you help me? Thanks. I'm correcting this post to warn you that I still can not find the directory, ran the operations proposed, but the "terminal" prints permission denied.

Is there a way to find out why an add-on has been removed from the Mozilla "Add-Ons" website?

I have been happily using "ISBN Linker," an add-on that I heard about from a few different sites and installed from Mozilla's "Add-Ons" website only a few months ago. I went to the site today to install this add-on on a new computer, and I received the message that nothing could be found under that name. As far as I can tell, it's been entirely removed from the add-on repository (Google Cache still shows some remnants of its existence).

Is there any way to find out why it was removed? It's not that I want to argue for why it shouldn't be there, but rather that if it was simply that it hadn't been updated, or perhaps that it was even just removed by the creator, I'd take a shot at re-creating the add-on and resubmitting it. If, though, it was removed for some other reason, I'd love to know so I avoid any problems!

Updated to 3.6.15 and my extensions/add-ons aren't working or showing up apart from the add-ons list. Tried downgrading (3.16.14 & 3.5.7) and they still didn't show up. Is there a stable version to get Adblock Plus to work, at least? Or is this some other sort of problem?
