I can't seem to down any of their extensions for any of the new tools or what they call extensions...I tried everything all I get is that I am missing a file called XPI. can anyone clue me in as to how to get this file or maybe another forum that might be of help.

I am running a PC XP windows and Mozilla FireFox 1.5.05

Thanks in advance

The 'XPI' file is the actual extension installer file you should have downloaded. All mozilla/firefox extension files are named "[filename].xpi"

There are two ways to download/install them:

1. You can LEFT-CLICK the "Install Now" link on the web-page to download and install within the FF web-browser in one process, OR

2. Right-click the "Install Now" link and choose "Save Link As" which will download the file to your Desktop (this is the default destination). Then go to your Desktop and double-click the file to install it.

Whichever of these two methods has given you the problem you described, you may have more luck with the other method hopefully!

Thanks for the reply...But I have tried all that and the program is still asking me for the XPI program to open the files with. That's my problem, I need the XPI file so I can open the extensions. Yet when I look up XPI in Google I get nothing that I can see that will help.

That why I posted here hoping against hope that I can pointed in the right direction. There are extensions that I could use but can't get them to open up once they are downloaded.
