Firefox Extensions


Recommended Posts

I'm having problems downloading extensions to Firefox. I go to the firefox extension web page and click on the install now icon. Firefox properly opens the Extensions window and suddenly displays the following error message:


Firefox could not install this item because "install-av7.rdf" (provided by this item) is malformed. Please contact the author about this problem.


This occurs on every extension I attempt to install. It's been an ongoing issue for quite some time on my system. I have the newest verison of Firefox and their website says the extensions I'm trying to install support this version.


Any thoughts?

Hm, I've never had that issue Camp, but perhaps try re-installing FireFox? I know there was a new release of it the other day.


If ti comes down to that, try this:


Backup your Bookmarks/Cookies/etc.

Uninstall FireFox via the Add/Remove Programs.

Then delete the Mozilla folder in C:\Documents and Settings\YourUsernameHere\Applications folder.

Reboot, and reinstall FireFox.

THe Mozilla folder located in C:\Documents and Settings\YourUsernameHere\Applications holds a lot of settings, so once you delte that, and re-install FireFox, you should be ok. If you don't delelte that folder, and subsequent re-installs of FireFox use the settings found in there, which could cause issues.
