I formulated these steps using 10.6.8 and FF5. That's what I'm running now and it continues to work fine on my machine. If you want to report that it didn't work for you, or that you got certain errors and want help, that's fine, but don't accuse me of laziness or somehow having failed you. None of these hints come with a warranty. Either give constructive feedback or keep your sour grapes to yourself.

All I'm saying is that I spent over an hour trying diligently, desperately to follow every single point of these directions and ran into one roadblock after another. JSR's comments were helpful in getting past a couple of snags, but overall these directions led me to one blind alley after another and did not work for me. Other readers may appreciate the warning.

Thanks a lot alexiskai!

Following *all* of the steps (even the ones you thought may not be needed) allowed me to install the plugin running with the latest FF 5.0.1 on OS X 10.6.8. So now it works just as it used to with FF3! :)

Some people just don't know how to ask for help when they get stuck and instead criticise those that are trying to offer such help. Just ignore such comments. Thumbs up to you!
