Subject Re: [jira] Closed: (FOR-837) ForrestBar 0.7 will not install on FF 1.5.0.1
Date Wed, 22 Mar 2006 19:55:54 GMT
Ferdinand,

  If I recall correctly how to do this...  First, close Firefox.  Go 
into your Firefox user directory and find the Extensions directory.  In 
here, there's an Extensions.rdf file, it's XML.  Find the chunk that 
refers to Forrest.  Mine looks like this:

  <RDF:Description 
RDF:about="urn:mozilla:extension:{057e51a0-7e81-4749-ad58-d5e
32a6084a9}"
                   em:version="0.7"
                   em:name="ForrestBar"
                   em:description="Forrest-related sites nav tool"
                   em:creator="Apache Forrest Community"
                   em:homepageURL="http://www.forrest.apache.org/"
                   em:disabled="true">
    <em:targetApplication RDF:resource="rdf:#$hg4WQ3"/>
    <em:targetApplication RDF:resource="rdf:#$ig4WQ3"/>
    <em:targetApplication RDF:resource="rdf:#$jg4WQ3"/>
  </RDF:Description>

Take note of that UUID in the top RDF tag.  Remove this chunk from the 
file and save it.

Now remove the directory that is the UUID.  Eg: 
{057e51a0-7e81-4749-ad58-d5e32a6084a9}.  Restart Firefox.

Your mileage may vary but it shouldn't...
