When I was developing a Firefox addon called Site Compare, I selected my addon folder with nsIExtensionManager, then opened a file there, then read it line-by-line, but each line didn't have a charAt method, then I took a path which I didn't use nsIExtensionManager to develop my addon and now it works.

When I was installing a bookmark extension called MyBookmarks, it wouldn't install, because of an error -203, then I double-clicked it in the Error Console and it was coming from nsIExtensionManager. (That error doesn't exist any longer, because I can use MyBookmarks.)

*Now, I created a profile, then opened it, then installed Extension Developer's Extension, then enabled debugging, then tried to create two xpi files with it, one from the source code of an addon that I'm developing and one from the source code of Site Compare v0.87, an addon that is in Mozilla Addons, that works, but in both situations I opened the Error Console, then I got lots of error messages, then I double-clicked one of them and it was a small method that used nsIExtensionManager.*

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. create an empty profile
2. open it
2. install Extension Developer's Extension in it
3. enable debugging in the Extension Developer's menu item
4. try to create a xpi file from the Site Compare v0.87 source code ( ) or the Missing Alert source code ( )
Actual Results:  
In the Error Console, there are lots of error messages.

Expected Results:  
The xpi file would be created.

Since you don't actually list any of the error messages you complain about we can't help you. And since this problem appears to be related to the EDE extension - and older extension now superseded by the online extension wizard - perhaps you should complain to the author of that extension.

The first error comes from teh ubuntufox extension which comes with your ubuntu distro. Please file a bug in their launchpad bug reporting system there instead.

The rest are errors from the Extension Developers Extension. Please get support from the author. We are not responsible for these errors.

> The first problem:

Bugzilla is not a tech support forum. Please go to news:// or irc://moznet/extdev for your tech support questions.
