Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1. I download the extension 2. Notice the extension manager says "this extension will be installed after restarting firefox" 3. I restart firefox 4. I get the same message as in 2. The same behavior occurs when trying to disable or uninstall said extensions. The extensions I've tried this with are: ChromEdit 0.1.1.1 OpenBook 1.2.0 PasteIP 1.3b3 Web Developer 0.8 User Agent Switcher 0.6 Adblock 0.5.2.039 Actual Results: Repeatedly see the 'to be installed' message. Also, the same behavior occurs when I try to disable or uninstall the extension. Expected Results: I should have some installed extensions!
are you sure that the process is completely terminating? especially under Linux I'm really bad for leaving a window on a different workspace and forgetting to fix it.
Absolutely. It happens between reboots, and between version upgrades (when I am certain the profile manager would come up if I had the default profile still in use). I don't use multiple workspaces anyhow.
This problem has been resolved. I think the problem was that I hadn't run firefox as the root user enough times.

(In reply to comment #4) > resolving per comment 3 I seem to have this problem still. An upgrade to Deer Park alpha 2 keeps showing the "will be installed/uninstalled/upgraded after restart" for a lot of extensions, including: DOM inspector Web developer Extended cookie manager Greasemonkey... Personally, I don't think it's the extensions, b/c why else would DOM inspector 1.9a1 have this problem, too? Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-US; rv:1.9a1) Gecko/20060107 Firefox/1.6a1
