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.
