firefox 1.0 no installing extensions


I just upgraded to firefox 1.0 on RH9.0.

Most extensions won't install correctly

When I install an extension and firefox says either it will install the extension after I restart firefox or This extension will be uninstalled after I restart firefox. Neither of which happen after I do restart it but, they don't work either.

Anyone else having this same problem?

Maybe extension developers haven't yet modified extension to work under Firefox 1.0. You can try following:
Open .xpi file with Ark, or some other archiving utility, and extract file install.rdf. Edit the file with some text editing program like this:
Notice maxVersion.
Put the file back in the XPI archive, and try to install extension again.
