I have been a huge fan of Mozilla Firefox since its launch, but lately i have been noticing this. I don't know whether its a bug or my ignorance, since im a novice user. Let me explain.

I have two plug ins or addons installed, which ever way you call them.

1. Switch Proxy
2. Log Me In

Now after updating to Mozilla Firefox 3 and henceforth, everytime i launch firefox it says Switch proxy and Log Me In not supported with this firefox version. 

Alright not a big deal since i don't use both of them, so i go ahead and uninstall both and it says you gotta restart your browser and everything will be fine.

Well i click on the restart Firefox button and everything seems to be normal. But once i close the browser and re launch it, there it goes, it comes up again. 

I have no idea whether they really getting uninstalled or not. Or are they still lying in the registry somewhere.

Anyways there goes my problem, if i have not been specific, please let me know so that i can give out more details, lol, that's all i see for the time being.

One more thing, installing and incorporating Zone alarm Force Field toolbar in Mozilla Firefox Browser causes all the downloads to crash abruptly. 

If i use Download Them All, everything seems to download fine, but i have to use the unprotected version of Mozilla Firefox in Zone Alarm Force Field, so it got no toolbar in it.

There it goes, a long list i know. Hope you guys might be able to figure it out. Or Maybe you already have.

I'm waiting for a reply guysssss.

Have a nice day.

An Avid Fan and a Learner.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
Can you please describe the message that you see that tells you they are not supported. Is it a new window that appears after launching Firefox?

Also can you please attach copies of extensions.rdf, extensions.ini, extensions.cache and extensions.log from your profile folder.
