Workaround for problem installing Firefox extension


I have been having a problem installing some Firefox extensions.  When I attempt to install a new extension, I get the following message:


Firefox could not download the file at <url, including extension.xpi> because: Download error


I finally found this page that has a solution.  All that you need to do is download the plugin to the disk.  Then you can drag the file into a browser window.  Then Firefox will offer to install it from the disk.
