Oh, and I'm not even able to open the "Extensions" menu (Tools/Extensions)...

Are you able to open the download window (tools/downloads) or any other window on firefox? If not, this may be a problem with some sort of popup blocker, thats what it was with me when I had this problem.

Yes, I'm able to open all menus inside "Tools" except "Extensions"...

Sorry for the bump but I can't believe I'm the only one having this problem?!

Make sure you have the "Allow web sites to install software" option enabled in your FireFox Web Features Options menu. You will also need to approve each installation, even after setting this option.
If you still have trouble after that, and if you have upgraded Firefox without uninstalling the previous version first, then I suggest that you uninstall Firefox and re-install it.
This has not been so much of a problem recently, but before the 1.0 release it was often necessary to uninstall the old version before reinstalling the new.
Uninstalling Firefox does not delete your profile folder, so bookmarks and preferences should not be affected by the uninstall/reinstall. If in doubt, make a back-up.

I uninstalled it again and remove all folders related to Mozilla/Firefox (including those in documents and settings). I installed it back and now it works!
Thanks for your help..

I had exactly the same problem, couldn't load new extensions or upgrade Firefox. Never found the cause, like you I reinstalled.
