Please can you attach copies of extensions.rdf, extensions.cache, extensions.ini and extensions.log from your profile folder to this bug report. Also if you could look in the error console after an attempt to install and copy the most recent error messages from there that would be helpful.

I could not find the following files anywhere on my computer.

    * extensions.ini
    * extensions.cache
    * extensions.rdf
The instructions at http://support.mozilla.com/en-US/kb/Profiles#How_to_find_your_profile should tell you where to find those files.

Thanks. I was able to locate the .cache and the .rdf extension files, but not the .ini. The first two are attached.

I need you to attach the files to this bug report so that I can figure out what the problem might be here.
Please reopen if you can attach the files requested, we can't evaluate this further without that information.
