How To get old extensions installed in Firefox 3

Postby merlwiz79 » Tue Jun 10, 2008 8:11 am

This does not mean that the extension will work, just that it will get installed.
This will help get old extensions to install in Firefox 3.

1. Type about:config into Firefox's address bar and click the "I'll be careful, I promise!" button.

2. Right-click anywhere. Choose New > Boolean and name it extensions.checkCompatibility and make sure it's set to false.

3. Right-click anywhere. Choose New > Boolean and name it extensions.checkUpdateSecurity and make sure it's set to false.

4. Restart Firefox.

If that still doesn't get it installed then install Nightly Tester Tools extension.

Would you expect it to work later on?

Don't fix it if it ain't broken, don't break it if you can't fix it

Just saying most will work but not all do because of the changes in Firefox.
Most do not work 100%.
I'm sure the developer will update it later and you'll get it working.
