Adblock extension and Firefox

Posts: n/a
I tried to install AdBlock into FF 1.0.6 using the about:config mods
described in the notes. However it doesn't seem to go in.
Here's what I did:
Change application.extensions.version from 1.0 to .10
Change extensions.disabledObsolete to false
Install AdBlock
Change application.extensions.versions back to 1.0
Restart FF

I don't get the alert telling me that something is trying to install a
new program, so it is behaving as if the version checking is still in

Can anyone tell me what I'm going wrong? TIA.
