Hello, I followed the tutorial to create an Extension but when I run firefox I can read this message "This element cannot be installed because "install.rdf" is incorrect or doesn't exist"
Please can you help me, I followed all this instructions of this site and I don't kniow where is the problem.
I installed the Diccionario de Español add-on but i couldnt figure out how to use that dictionary. The options in the add-ons menu is disabled for this extension. I use Firefox 2. Anyone got idea about this?

I want to ask you that is there any tool I can implement firefox extensions?
See "Tools for building extensions: " at top of this thread.
I have a bookmark that fixes a page with horizontal scroll bars:
I copied the code into a "Mouse gestures" new gesture but it won't work. "An error occured in the gesture function. n has no properties" How can I get this to work as a gesture rather than a bookmark?
Solution - I made a bookmarklet and linked the "Mouse Gestures" to it (too easy). Works like charm.
In a forum with long URLS and horizontal scroll bars, I can now drag my mouse and the page fixes itself! Super.
Looking for an extension preventing any body from disabling wot or pro-con if their any help or is their any body capable of creating one.
