Firefox Extensions Won’t Download

By | September 29, 2011 | 7 Comments


Ain’t I lucky? I decided to do an absolutely fresh installation of Firefox 7 and would obviously have to reinstall my extensions and skins. The thing is, none of the extensions will download. This is making me sad, as Firefox has got some excellent extensions. Let’s hope that Mozilla fixes the issue soon as it has been several hours now. Click the image to witness my misery!

Update: Check Wicket’s link below for further clarification. Thanks, Wicket.

    Mozilla stopped distributing the Update until the fix will be delivered with Version 7.0.1.

      FF Version 7.0.1 is out now, that fixes that problem.

    Why can I download extensions just fine in Ubuntu? It’s not a problem pertaining specifically to Windows, is it?

    The solution is simple… We kill the Batman

       If it’s so simple, why haven’t you done it already?

    Ever since 7.01 came along, Firefox has begun to freeze randomly for a few seconds at a time again. Firefox 7 was great. Firefox 7.01 is annoying me. This is only happening to me on Windows 7 as well. Firefox 7.01 runs fine in Ubuntu 11.04.
