How do I install XPI files?


Hi,

I just DL'ed a XPI file. The file can be found 'here'. The second one (Lite). I don't know how to install this file.

Inside, it contains:

chrome folder
defaults folder
install.js
install.rdf
license.txt

The install.rdf doesn't explain where to install it since it is not a manual.

Please help.

That's a Mozilla/Netscape/Firefox plugin, you'll need to install it through your browser.

My browser was not responding when I clicked on it. So I had to DL it into my home folder.

EDIT: Never mind. I got it working. I am an idiot.
