    I am having trobule downloading extensions from the Firefox website. I went to the content tab and i've tried every possible combination. I can't figure it out.

    If any of you have any insight into this, it would be greatly appreciated.

    Try Preferences -> Advanced -> Updates, check all three of the boxes at the top, and then check either of the options below.

    Do you mean that you can't figure out where they are, how to download and install them, or that you can't figure out why they can't be installed?

    I just use the Tools menu to get their quickly.

    You are running the Firefox application from the /Applications folder, right, and not the disk image?

    And also do you have write privileges to the /applications, if it is there (e.g. is yours an administrator account?)

    If "yes" to the above questions, then try downloading the .xpi files to the desktop, then dragging them unto the extension manager window.
