Dropping XPI in extensions/ does not install it. Instead I see these messages in
JS Console, and the extension is stuck in the EM (with "This item will be
installed ...").

Install Location returned an item path that does not exist! Item Path:
C:\Documents and Settings\Коля\Application
Location Key: app-profile Item ID: {3f0da09b-c1ab-40c5-8d7f-53f475ac3fe8}

safeInstallOperation: install operation (caller-supplied callback) failed,
rolling back file moves and aborting installation.

ExtensionManager:_finishOperations - failure, catching exception...
[Exception... "Component returned failure code: 0x80520015
(NS_ERROR_FILE_ACCESS_DENIED) [nsIZipReader.extract]"  nsresult: "0x80520015
(NS_ERROR_FILE_ACCESS_DENIED)"  location: "JS frame ::
file:///C:/PROGRA~1/Mozilla.org/FIREFO~1.EM/components/nsExtensionManager.js ::

Is this similar to what bug 291666 comment 11 says?

I doubt that, as the same XPI installs fine through drag and drop. We'll see
when that one gets fixed.

http://www.mozilla.org/projects/firefox/extensions/em-changes.html says it
should work, asking for blocking1.1.

This might be an encoding issue... what is your username (C:\Documents and
Settings\...)? Can you try the same thing with an ASCII username (Or a profile
on an ASCII path)?

No I just tested it for profile located at c:\temp and it didn't work either.
This doesn't work with global installations too.

Hmm, I tried installing via drag-and-drop to extension manager, and it didn't
work either. Looks like it's general "can't install extensions" issue. Others
(on forums) are seeing this as well.
I believe this is a dupe of bug 291666... I am able to install by dropping an
XPI in the extensions directory with the patch from that bug and I am not able
to without it.

JS Console error is different though. I'll dupe this, if needed, after that
patch lands.

Yeah, I grabbed the wrong js console error when I made that comment. The one you
have here is one of the js console messages from that bug and also include the
will be installed message in the EM.

okay, dupe it then.

I'm not dupe happy :) just trying to keep track of what's going on to avoid
duplicate work and it appears this will be fixed by bug 291846. Marking depends
on bug 291846
