Getting the Delicious bookmarks add-on to work with Firefox 5.0

I figured out a simple trick to make the Delicious bookmarks Firefox add-on work after upgrading to Firefox 5.0.

This assumes that you previously had the Delicious bookmarks add-on working in Firefox 3.6.x and you have just upgraded to Firefox 5.0 – which disables the add-on and states that it is incompatible with Firefox 5.0

  • Open Firefox
  • Goto “Help” in the Menu, then “Troubleshooting Information”
  • Click on the “Open Containing Folder” or “Show in Finder” button (within the box “Application Basics” on top of the page)
  • Close Firefox
  • Goto into directory “extensions\{2fa4ed95-0317-4c6a-a74c-5f3e3912c1f9}”
  • Edit install.rdf and change the following from the first line to the second line
em:maxVersion=”4.0b3pre” />
em:maxVersion=”5.0.*” />
  • Restart Firefox
