User-Agent:       Mozilla/5.0 (Macintosh; U; Intel Mac OS X; en-GB; rv:1.8.1.14) Gecko/20080404 Firefox/2.0.0.14
Build Identifier: Mozilla/5.0 (Macintosh; U; Intel Mac OS X 10.5; en-US; rv:1.9b4pre) Gecko/2008030313 Prism/0.9

Bringing up the add-ons box and clicking 'get extensions' does not launch the Mozilla add-ons site. Occasionally it writes some kind of 'hexstring.text.part' to my desktop which then disappears again (for example h76sgh8i.text.part will appear for a second then go away again).

I worked around this by going into addons through thunderbird, downloading the XPI files for my required extensions, and installing these manually.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Start any Prism App
2. Click the 'Cog' icon for drop-down in the lower bar.
3. Click 'Tools > Addons'
4. Click 'Get Extensions'.
Actual Results:  
Nothing, though occasionally it writes some kind of 'hexstring.text.part' to my desktop which then disappears again (for example h76sgh8i.text.part will appear for a second then go away again).

Expected Results:  
Should have launched addons.mozilla.org in a new prism window, with auto-detection of Prism and displaying an 'Add to Prism' download button next to extensions.

It looks like 0.9.1 no longer has the "Get Extensions" button. Mark, did you remove it? Or am I missing something?
