    Spoofstick & Firefox 2.0

    Hey guys,
    I figured I'd share this little tidbit of info I found on a mozilla forum. If you're looking to install the Spoofstick plug-in on Firefox 2.0, the default .xpi won't install it (says FF 2.0 is not supported or something yadda yadda).

    This workaround will fix that issue.
    - download the spoofstick-firefox.xpi (the file itself)
    - open the .xpi with Winzip (should be a total of 3 files)
    - find the file called install.rdf
    - open install.rdf with Notepad
    - look for this line: <em:maxVersion>1.6a2</em:maxVersion>
    - change 1.6a2 (or whatever the number is) to 2.0 or higher
    - save and close it (select "yes" when it asks to update the zip archive)
    - install the plug-in

    Here's a site where you can download the file (it won't auto-install it)

    p.s. - Don't thank me, thank JC (the guy who posted this on the mozilla forum)

    Or you could just install the nightly tester tools plugin, and then that will automagically convert the outdated plugin to work.

    get the plugin from here:> http://www.oxymoronical.com/web/firefox/nightly

    You can also try this one: https://addons.mozilla.org/firefox/2429/

    Easy to understand sidebar to protect users from spoofing and phishing attacks.
    Putting TrustBar*, Spoofstick* and PetnameTool* in one PlugIn to get the advantages of every one of them and even more.

    Edit: Actually this one is fairly lame....
