I'm using Firefox 0.9 on XP at work. I used to be able to istall extensions fine, and have a couple of good ones installed. But now when I try to install a new extension, nothing happens. I go to the Extensions page, find one I want, and click the Install Link button. The browser pauses for half a second but nothing installs or downloads. This is for all of the available extensions. There's nothing in Help about this problem. How do I make it work again?

Did you check in Tools/Options/Advanced/Software Update - make sure you have the "Allow websites to install software" box checked....

Aha, should've thought of that. I was trying to be secure. Thanks!

I turn it on when I want to check for updates, and install same, then turn it off again....
