Recently, I upgraded my favorite browser, Firefox to version 6.0. Well, it looked good until I tried to update my Add-ons. Some Add-ons that had been installed in previous version were not anymore accessible—not even a button or link to delete or install them, were present. Firefox listed them as incompatible with the current version and disabled them.
What I want to do is to update or clean them (delete). But how can I do that, I can’t find any button to do that. Please help if you think you have been experiencing this problem too. Thanks for sharing.
Incompatible Add-ons of Firefox version 6.0
First, you should set your Firefox in the “Safe Mode”.
Now, to enter the hidden settings of Firefox, input this about:config into the address field then “Enter”
Approve the “Warning message”
The settings that you should search to construct is the extensions.checkCompatibility.6.0
You can construct the value by clicking on the page, and then choose “New” then the “Boolean”
Below the “Preference Name” input this : extensions.checkCompatibility.6.0
For the “Enter Boolean Value” choose the “False”
Now, restart your Firefox.
Check if the dialogue box of your Add-ons has disappeared. Check also if you can now enable again your add-ons.
