Make Firefox 1.5 work with all extensions

Thursday, December 01, 2005

The most common problem with Firefox1.5 is that most old extensions don't work. There is a workaround for this though. A simple modification to the Firefox Configuration will do the trick.
  1. At the location bar type about:config. This will show a list of firefox preferences.
  2. Right click on the list and select New > String. Enter “app.extensions.version” (without quotes) for the preference name.
  3. Then, enter 1.0 as the calue for the app.extension.version
  4. Then restart Firefox 1.5 and enable all the previously disabled extensions
  5. Restart Firefox 1.5 again to activate the extensions.
Here is the original post from where I found this.
