My firefox extensions won't load.

I think it all started when I installed flock.

I have uninstall both and then reinstalled. Still no go.


Any ideas?


Thanks, Ken

This can be caused by one of files that contain details of installed extensions becoming corrupted.

Close Firefox, go to your profile folder and delete extensions.cache, extensions.ini and extensions.rdf

Next open the extensions sub-folder within your profile folder, if there is a folder called staged-xpis delete it.

When you next start Firefox the 3 extensions.* files will be re-created and in the process it will regenerate the list of installed extensions.
