If you want to use Extensions & themes that are not insatalling on newer versions of

firefox then follow these steps :

> Open Firefox.

> on the address bar type “about:config” without the quotes.

> create a new Boolean key aka preference & name it “extensions.checkCompatibility”

without the quotes.

> set the value of this newly created key aka preference at false.

Restart Firefox.

After this tweak your Firefox Addon Manager window should look like this.

Note I’ve used Firefox 2.0.0.12 & Firefox Beta 3.0.b3 for this purpose. Have not tested

it on
latest firefox 3 beta. So guys please test it on that & let me know since my priority

target
of this tute is firefox 3 :D.

Note : All plugins & themes will not work flawlessly in this way since the browser
change it’s functionality with every major releases. But they will install.
Give them a shot if you’re interested.
