I've also reported this problem to roboform, and they gave the download URL above.
I have installed roboform version 6.9.87, but it is not recognised by Firefox 3 beta 2.  I have checked the version is correct in Roboform and it shows the right version.  However when I check the version in the Addons menu for Firefox it show it to be 6.9.86 stating this version is not supported.  Do you know the reason for this?

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. I tried reinstalling roboform.
2. I tried rebooting the computer after a new installation.

Which Firefox version are you using when having this problem? In the text you tell that Roboform isn't recognized by Firefox 3 beta 2 and the User-Agent at the top of your post tells us Firefox 2.

If the version you use is really Firefox 3, then it's not surprising that the extension isn't compatible, because many extension aren't compatible with Firefox 3 yet.

Sorry about the confusion.  It is Firefox 3.  However Roboform has sent me a *.xpi file that overcomes the problem.  Here is the link:  

This is said to work on all beta versions of Firefox 3

Thanks for you help.

The file linked above won't work on future betas of Firefox 3 if they won't update it.
