Where do I get nightly tester tools for version 1.5

Seems to be Catch 22 here.

I want some of the extensions that have died with the FF update to
version 1.5. To that end I try to install nightly tester tools
version 0.7.9.7 from
https://addons.mozilla.org/extension...nfo.php?id=958

only to be told by the extension updater that it is incompatible with
version 1.5.

"install.rdf" for the nightly build extension seems to suggest it
ought to work from versions 1.0 to 1.6.

<!-- Firefox version -->
<em:targetApplication>
<Description>
<em:id>{ec8030f7-c20a-464f-9b0e-13a3a9e97384}</em:id>
<em:minVersion>1.0</em:minVersion>
<em:maxVersion>1.6a1</em:maxVersion>
</Description>
</em:targetApplication>

Is there a way to force it to install?

Current version is 0.7.9.10. Get it from the author's home page:

Tried that. Author's website isn't installing when clicked on (java
script enabled), so I tried save-as and downloaded it.

From there, with the browser closed, I move the file from the download
folder to the Mozilla FF icon and after a series of hourglasses the
browser comes up and the extension menu displays.

I now get a different error message.

"Firefox could not install the file at (download folder and file name)
because : Unexpected installation error Review the JavaScript Console
log for more details.

OK"

Last message in the JS console is

ExtensionManager:_finishOperations - failure, catching exception -
lineno: 3391 - file:
file:///C:/PROGRAM%20FILES/MOZILLA%20FIREFOX/components/nsExtensionManager.js
- TypeError: installLocation has no properties

That's a little out of my league . . .

Any ideas where to go what to do from here?

OK going to the Program Files/Mozilla etc.
nsExtensionManager.js

I take the js and put it in a word processor and tell it to count the
lines and line number 3391 says:

var versionChecker = getVersionChecker();

That's assuming they mean to count empty lines - what I did with the
word processor.

Looks like it is looking for some sort of number after
"getVersionChecker();" ????

Error message 3 in JS console
_finalizeUninstall: failed to remove directory for item:
{DD99D76F-5129-4fd3-A2DC-AB41D6FBCF98} at Install Location:
app-profile, rolling back uninstall

Error message 2 in JS console
safeInstallOperation: failed to clean up item location after its
contents were properly backed up. Failed to clean up:
C:\WINDOWS\Application
Data\Mozilla\Firefox\Profiles\default.rpp\extensio ns\{DD99D76F-5129-4fd3-A2DC-AB41D6FBCF98}
.... rolling back file moves and aborting installation.

Error message 1 in JS console
Item Uninstalled via file removal from:
rel%{DD99D76F-5129-4fd3-A2DC-AB41D6FBCF98} Item ID:
{DD99D76F-5129-4fd3-A2DC-AB41D6FBCF98} Location Key: app-profile,
uninstalling item.

I don't know what to say. I just installed it on my Mac copy. I did
have to download it, and use File>>Open File to install it, but it
worked fine, and is behaving correctly.

Would you check out your nsExtensionManager.js

file:///C:/PROGRAM%20FILES/MOZILLA%20FIREFOX/components/nsExtensionManager.js

tell me the exact file size? That may give a hint as to whether it
is corrupted. Assuming that is the same on a Mac . . . should be.

Thanks. I'm packing it in for tonight. I think I'll try a reload of
1.5 tomorrow. It appears to me that there is a missing variable and
many/most of them are two characters. But I'm no programmer.
