How many extensions left after upgrading to Firefox 2.0?



50%. Is this an average number? How many extensions really need more than an configuration change?

If you’re looking for your favorite extension, check out this.

I’ll miss the SwitchProxy Tool most.

Update: thanks to Jeff, I got almost all my extensions back using this

  1. I had a couple of extensions that I wanted to keep, but that were not compatible with 2.0. I downloaded the xpi files instead of installing them, opened the xpi with Total Commander (any zip tool should do the trick) and edited the file install.rdf. There are two entries for FF and TB, named <em:maxVersion> where I changed the value to 2.0+. After putting the edited file back in the xpi, it is just a matter of dragging the xpi into an open FF window.
    This has worked for me for those extensions that I wanted to keep, but in case you have an extension that really is not compatible, I don’t know what the outcome would be.
