Description

10 years ago
User-Agent:       Mozilla/4.0 (compatible; MSIE 7.0; Windows NT 5.1; .NET CLR 1.1.4322; .NET CLR 2.0.50727; InfoPath.1)
Build Identifier: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-US; rv:1.9) Gecko/2008052906 Firefox/3.0

I attempted to install all of the following extensions at once by clicking and dragging them from Windows Explorer using .xpi files (this happens both on Portable Firefox 3.0 and the standard en-US install of Firefox 3.0.) The .xpi files I attempted to install are:

colorzilla-2.0-.xpi
cssviewer-1.03-fx.xpi
dom_inspector-2.0.0-fx+tb+sb+sm.xpi
firebug-1.2.0b3-fx.xpi
greasemonkey-0.8.20080609.0-fx.xpi
html_validator-0.8.5.2-fx+mz-win.xpi
ie_tab-1.5.20080310-fx-win.xpi
java_console_6.0.02-6.0.02-fx.xpi
javascript_debugger-0.9.87.4-.xpi
measureit-0.3.8-fx.xpi
noscript-1.6.9.3-fx+mz_xm.xpi
session_manager-0.6.1.13-fx.xpi
total_validator-5.2-fx.xpi
web_developer-1.1.6-fx.xpi
yslow-0.9.5b2-fx.xpi

After clicking Install Now, I get several blank dialog boxes (dialog boxes with OK and Cancel buttons but no title or text) and behind them, a standard incompatibility error for the Session Manager add-on.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Open Firefox
2. Click Tools->Options
3. Click Manage Add-ons...
4. Open the folder location of multiple .xpi files (in Windows)
5. Highlight all of the .xpi files
6. Click and drag the .xpi files into the add-on manager
7. Click Install Now
Actual Results:  
Four blank dialog boxes appear with OK and Cancel buttons (unexpected result) behind which a dialog box that says "Session Manager 0.6.1.13 could not be installed because it is not compatible with Firefox 3.0" (the expected result for an incompatible extension.)

Expected Results:  
Successful install or dialog box with error message information and continuation instructions.

The blank dialog boxes should have displayed information and instructions (what happens when I click OK or Cancel) or they should not have been displayed at all.

Just tried this and is seems to work perfectly with that list of add-ons. Can you still reproduce and if so could you take some screenshots that display the behaviour.
No response in two weeks and we need further details to diagnose this problem,
