Make your Firefox extensions work

Many times we run across Firefox extensions which are are not compatible with the version that we are using. But there's always a workaround. Two of them actually. The first one -
  • Type about:config into Firefox's address bar and click the "I'll be careful, I promise!" button.
  • Right-click anywhere. Choose New>Boolean. Make the name of your new config value extensions.checkCompatibility and set it to false.
  • Make another new boolean pair called extensions.checkUpdateSecurity and set the value to false.
  • Restart Firefox.
The second one -

  • Download the *.jar , *.xpi file.
  • Open the file with WinRAR.
  • Look for the file install.rdf. It contains the information about which versions of Firefox it is compatible with.
  • Edit the file in Notepad. For that you may have to copy the file to hard disk, edit it,save it, then copy it back to the file with WinRAR.
  • Change the x.0.0.* in <em:maxVersion> x.0.0.* < /em:maxVersion > to 4.0.0.* or any higher number that you think fit.
  • Save the file back into
