I am completely new to the Mac OS X environment (but not to Unix / Linux OS's), and I am currently having a bit of difficulty with adding addons to my installed copy of Firefox 3.6 (the last version of FF that will run on OS X Tiger for PowerPC, apparently...).
I have performed all of the usual steps when installing addons for Firefox, and I know that the addons I'm trying to add to it are for that particular version of FF, but when I finish downloading them, and try to install them to FF, I get the following message:
Firefox could not install the file at [addons-website-url]
because: Download error
I am particularly trying to install Download Statusbar, as I love that addon, and never use FF without it :-D
Now, this occurs for ANY addon I try to install (again, all of the addons I'm trying to add have been checked for compatibility with my version of FF...), and I HAVE a connection to the internet (obviously...); so, I am really at a loss here!
I installed this particular copy of Firefox on my Mac myself, using the same account I always use, so I can't see it being a Unix-like "permissions" thing?
I have done some google searching, but to no avail so far (and I know that OS X Tiger is ancient, so it's kind of no-wonder... :-D ).
Any old-time OS X Tiger user's out there familiar with this particular problem?
Thanks for any and all help in advance...
