Discussion about official Mozilla Firefox builds
I have narrowed a problem I am having down to my prefs file. I have no extensions installed. When I use a default created prefs file, I can add Search Engine plugins from the following page: http://mycroft.mozdev.org/download.html ... orm=Search , no problem.
If I use my backed up prefs file, I get redirected to the following page whenever I click on one of them to try to install any of the Search Engine plugins: http://mycroft.mozdev.org/jsreq.html
If you have installed NoScript, you will need to allow this page to run scripts."
This is a tall task to have to go through one's prefs file setting by setting to figure out the problem, so I am asking here, because I can't figure out what it could be, and I thought you guys might know which probable preference it might be.
Can you upload or post the contents of the prefs.js file?
Try getting rid of those and remove all of the extension preferences.
Those may have just been session preferences, because they are no longer present in my prefs file.
hmm, that is weird, I see it in mine in about:config. Maybe I didn't upload the right prefs.js?

I am trying to avoid removing all of the extension preferences, as I don't know which are which. I could inadvertently reset the Firefox preference that is causing the problem, and it would get us no where. That is why I am posting here, because people here should know if there are any specifically Firefox settings that could be causing this.
Close Firefox and upload user prefs.js again.
I just had a thought. Check hostperm.1 in your profile for any script/mozdev entries.
Yeah, there were, but it doesn't matter, because I have tested it with a clean hostperm.1 (and just did again). Only when I introduce the prefs.js does the problem arise.
