If an add-on package adds sidebars that have to be avalible offline/locally,
they have to store html files in the user's profile directory to ensure they are
not overwritten.  For an example of this, see Dino:
http://sites.netscape.net/dinoproject/

This should be an easy modification, I think :).

Have you tried installing to getFolder("Current User")?

That's an icky name from 4.x, I'm going to check-in "Profile" as a synonym for 
the same directory. I haven't tried "Current User" in a while, but the code 
looks fine. Please let me know if I can close this out.

"Current User" is still supported.  It has been working fine for quite some 
time.  Ccing David.

With QA's validation of "Current User" working I'm closing this WORKSFORME.

termite: if I've misunderstood the bug please clarify.
