User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows NT 5.1; rv:2.0.1) Gecko/20110511 SeaMonkey/2.1 Build Identifier: For safety, I normally have my preferences set to disable installation of extensions. When I install an extension, I first download the .xpi file and then install from my hard drive. When I go to install an extension from my hard drive, Add-ons Manager first has me navigate to the .xpi file and then informs me that installation is disabled. I must then enable installation and again navigate to the .xpi file. The proper order should be to check whether installation is enabled before requesting any navigation to the file. Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1. Download an .xpi file for an extension. 2. With about:config, set xpinstall.enabled to "false". 3. Attempt to use Add-on Manager to "Install add-on from file". Actual Results: First, you are requested to navigate to the .xpi file. Then, you are requested to enable installation. Finally, you are again requested to navigate to the .xpi file. Expected Results: You should first be requested to enable installation before any request to navigate to the .xpi file.
Probably should just disable or hide the install option in that case.
NO! I set xpinstall.enabled to "false" in my user.js file for safety. I want to explicitly enable each installation. Before, Add-ons Manager provided the option to do such enabling and did so before requesting the .xpi file. That should not have been changed.
