Tab browser extension package won't install, Phoenix will download it instead. Anyone else has this problem? Or it's just me?

Update: Fixed in Jan 26 build!

Yep, same problem. Clicking on an XPI link does nothing. As a quick fix I associated the MIME type with Phoenix. Now it wants to download XPI files.

Yes, I was bad and lazy. I simply installed the new nightly build over my 0.5 release. I'll try a clean install and report back if that fixes the problem.

Clean install did not fix the problem. I'll go back one build to 20021228.

Confirming with Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-US; rv:1.3a) Gecko/20021229 Phoenix/0.5, clean new install directory and new profile.

2002-12-28 allowed drag-and-drop install of xpi files. 2002-12-29 not only does not allow dnd xpi installation, it also does not allow ctrl-o installation of xpi files. This was due to a Mozilla regression last time.

20021231 win32 also can't install any xpi's. This is both at mozdev and texturizer and xpi's I download and then try to drag and drop. Are only a few of us seeing this or what? As an aside the menu's at www.nvidia.com don't work as well.

BTW this appears to be the correct bug http://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=187126

This bug is confirmed with me, I still can't install any XPI's with ANY mehtod, whether it's dragging and dropping, or trying to install from a javascript auto-install link.

EDIT: Does this bug only exist on Windows XP?
