What extension? What is your OS?
How can we answer questions like this without all of the information?

I'm sorry, you are right. My OS is Windows XP Pro SP1. Extensions: all that i tried. For example getmess.xpi, preferential.xpi, smoothwheel.xpi......
If you need more information, please ask me.

Did you install 0.4 OVER a previous version of TB? If so, that is not a good thing!
Ok, I have getmess and preferential, and they installed fine for me. I don't use the smoothwheel so can't relate to that.
I would recommend you delete the profile\chrome folder and the XUL.mlf file under your profile.
Then delete the folder TB0.4 was installed in, and re-install it.
Then try the extensions again.
