Firefox dont want to install new extensions - Why?

Discussion in 'Firefox' started by Roger Gariepy, Jan 20, 2006.

  1. Hello,

    I use Firefox 1.5 (French version, but I have the same problem in
    then English only version, that I installed temporary) on a Windows XP
    machine.

    I have the message: "Software installation inactive. Click on Options
    Modification button and retry" ==> It did not work; event when you
    change all the choices in Options/Content (Options/Contenu in French).

    By the way, the option/Web functionality don't exist, nor in the French
    nor in English versions.

    Why extension installations are not functioning?

    Thank you,

    Roger Gariépy

    in the address bar type in about:config and look for the following entry:

    xpinstall.enabled

    when found, double click on it and change it to true
