i'm running ff 3.6.25 and can't install the yoville zynga gamebar the message i get is as follows:
Firefox could not install the file at http://zynga.ourtoolbar.com/xpi because: Not a valid install package -207
i installed it on my mom's pc after installing ff to it and it worked fine.
You may have to update Firefox. Please also check the Firefox version on mom's PC: Help (Alt + H) > About Firefox.
Page Info Tools (Alt + T) > Page Info, Right-click > View Page Info
update?? it said in posts i read that versions prior to version 4 will allow the install but if i update is it going to work?.... i'm scared to, lol
can you offer anymore info please?
You are right, it's compatible. Please try this: right-click on the above link, choose Save Link As... and Save (please note the download folder). Left click the downloaded file, drag it to the Firefox icon on the Taskbar and when Firefox maximises, release it over the opened window.
which link? i don't see one except the help links posted in first reply
Right-click the link that you posted and use Save Link As....
Then drag that XPI file into Firefox - or use File > Open File within Firefox and select that file.
Compatibility is Firefox 3.0 thru Firefox 10.0
i tried to save it as you said and it comes up as a gif why i don't know nor how to get it to save as a file i've tried again and it doesn't work that way what else can i do?
and thank you so much for helping me i appreciate it!
Please try to rename the file as .xpi ie. change the ending .gif to .xpi. If .gif is not visible you may have to open Computer, click Organize on the top left choose Folder and Search Options, choose the View tab on top and in the middle box scroll down until you see Hide extensions for known file types and uncheck the tick. You can later check / enable this option.
That is a signed file, so any modifications made by your security software (firewall, anti-virus software) or otherwise will invalidate the file.
Which security software (firewall, anti-virus) do you have?
Paste this code in the location bar to get a link that allows to save the file via the right-click context menu.
i use kasperky pure i tried to do that but it still wants to save as a gif don't understand that
sorry for all the trouble
