can't install themes or extensions to firefox
 
i am unable to install themes or extensions in firefox, i get a error 239, regardless of the user trying to install

For themes, run Firefox, from the menu choose
Tools
Options
Themes
Get New Themes
which opens http://texturizer.net/firefox/themes/ in a new browser
then pick a theme, click on Install, answer the questions, and it's done.

Extensions is about the same...
Tools
Options
Extensions
Get New Extensions
follow the gui directions...

I'm clueless past that. Did you try Firefox Support for some answers? They got a ton of threads... Also Google/linux

I use to have problems installing extentions untill I installed it in my home and to save the plugins.delete the plugins folder and link -s with the plugins I had in mozilla/plugins,then I could install anything I wanted.

Installed firefox in my home<eliminates permision problems>then delete that plugins folder and make a link to a plugins folder that has all your plugins.Just saves time installing the plugins again if you allready have them installed in another firefox or mozilla.I use apt so it is easy to install them to mozilla then they are linked to firefox in home,works great,read it around here,they explain it better then I do! Here is my link from root;ln -s /usr/lib/mozilla/plugins /home/david/firefox first I deleted the /home/david/firefox/plugins
