Filed under: Uncategorized — admin @ 11:37 pm

For those that recently upgraded to Firefox 3.5 and (if your like me) love the Googlebar Firefox extension but noticed that it didn’t work after upgrading to 3.5. Here’s how to fix it:

  1. download the XPI file from here
  2. rename the file extension from .xpi to .zip
  3. Unzip the file and you should two folders and three files that were contained in the archive
  4. Using notepad, open install.rdf and look for the line (about line #4) where it says em:maxVersion=”3.0.*”
  5. change the it to read¬†¬† em:maxVersion=”4.0.*”
  6. save the install.rdf file
  7. re-zip the files and folders together into a new archive including the altered install.rdf file
  8. rename the .zip file from step 7 to .xpi
  9. Open firefox, and navigate to tools->add-ons
  10. click the install button, navigate to the xpi file you created in step 8 and click the open button
  11. Voila! you have Googlebar in Firefox 3.5
