Ok well im trying to edit an extension for Firefox to better fit my needs.
I know how to edit the files and all that. I just need help with the .xpi file
Well i believe to make a .xpi you must put the files into a .zip file and rename it to .xpi
The problem is that when i rename file extensions on this PC it doesnt give me the choice to change the actual extension and it will stay the same, just change the name.

So im wondering if anyone can help me either fix this extension problem or tell me another way of making a .xpi file :tazz:

Not really. Just told me what i already know.

Does anyone know how to make it so when i edit the name of a file for example, test.zip and i change it to test.xpi that it will actually change the file type? It does this on my grandmas computer but not on this one. Any ideas?

hmm

Are you trying to swich it in windows? When you select the files you want to put in the xpi, right click, and click "Send to Zip". Then when it asks you what name to save it as, just try ****.xpi.

I'm using WinRAR and just did that with a file.....

Hope this helps,

dk :tazz:
