How to hack Firefox Add-Ons to work on FF3

FF3 is not official yet, but I love it and really want to use some extensions that are yet released for FF3.

Well, AT YOUR OWN RISK!!! you can 'hack' the add-on to 'potentialy' work in FF3 with the instructions below...

If you want to try it yourself, do this:
~Right-click the "add to firefox" button on the addon page and save the xpi file to your desktop or wherever.
~xpi files are really just zip files, so you can open the xpi in your favorite archive manager. Inside is a file called install.rdf. Extract this file somewhere and open it in a text editor.
~Change what's inside the tags from 2.0.0.* to 3.0.0.*, save the file and close it.
~Use your archive manager to add your updated install.rdf back into the xpi.
~Drag the updated xpi onto a running firefox window to install it as normal.

Yes, this trick works for any firefox add-on and no, you don't want to make a habit of it.

How to correct "Toolbar configuration not found."

How to correct "Toolbar configuration not found. Context toolbar not found. Bookmark design needs update" error message.

I received this error on my Notes 6.5.4 client when I was playing around with Lotus Notes 8 (which is wicked awesome by the way) on another machine.

Thanks to google I found this solution and thought I'd share it...

Solution 1:
Delete the cache.NDK and make sure you have the most up to date bookmark template, replace the design of your bookmark db, THEN go to Toolbar Preferences and press the "Restore All Defaults" button on the Basics tab, obviously you lose your old bookmarks.
Solution 2:
Delete the cache.NDK rename your current bookmark.nsf to bookmark.old and restart Lotus Notes. It will create a new bookmark.nsf, obviously you lose your old bookmarks.

Note that you will loose your 'bookmarks' on the side bar, but your 'workspace' with all of your database links should remain intact.
