Description

User-Agent:       
Build Identifier: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux ppc; en-US; rv:1.6) Gecko/20040210 Firefox/0.8

When I install an extension the download manager opens, but nothing happens
after that.  Even the XPI for downloading isn't shown (like it does on my x86
and sparc).  A friend of mine told me, that he has segfaults during this action.

I saw something similar in bug #233843, also PPC, but on Mac OS X.

Reproducible: Always
Steps to Reproduce:
1. compile firefox-0.8 from the official tar-ball
2. go to the extensions room
3. choose an extension for download

Actual Results:  
download manager opens, but nothing will be downloaded

Expected Results:  
download the extension and install it

Cannot install an extension without an immediate crash. Extension XPI file downloads, 
then app hangs and crashes when installation commences.

Running Mac OS X (10.2.8)

I heard from the Gentoo Community, that everybody has problems with installing
extensions.  I read in the OS X bug, that there should be a fix in the CVS. 
What about rolling a new tar-ball (like it is said on the website that this
should be done monthly)?

The bug is still present in the latest CVS. Here's a backtrace:

#0  0x0e073d74 in non-virtual thunk to nsDownload::Release() ()

I grepped for nsDownload::Release() and
nsDownloadManager::AssertProgressInfoFor(unsigned short const*) but couldn't
find them any where in the code, so I don't know what's going on there.

I was able to install a few extentions... both inside Firefox.app and my
profile... can not test a PPC Linux build.

Well, firefox-0.9 can now install extensions on Linux/PPC.  So I close this bug.
