Re: add-ons for firefox
Thanks for this information.
I have a suspicion that I have a totally different problem: When I try
to install the add-on, a window pops up with "Add ...?" and a Cancel
and an Add button. If I press "Add", this window disappears and
nothing happens. If I send firefox to the back of my window stack,
this window reappears. I think the press to the Add button is never
registered, that's the underlying problem. I use vtwm (yes, I am that
old), but also tried twm, with the same effect. So far I found no key
combination to perform the Add without the mouse. I'll try another
window manager, but maybe someone is brave enough to also test this
with twm - for old times' sake :)
