My apologies if this has been answered before - I did a search and couldn't find anything. When I try to install an extension, it will download, but once it starts to install, the program freezes. Themes install without a problem, including .xpi's. I'm using Windows XP, Phoenix 0.5. I've tried a clean 'install' and Phoenix 0.4 to no avail. Any help? Thanks.

No one else has reported any problems with any build up to and including the one from 12/28.

A suggestion to try and narrow down the problem:

Can you first save an XPI extension to your hard disk.

Then in Phoenix, goto the "File" , "Open File..." menu and select the XPI from the disk.

This test should rule out network problems etc.

No luck with that. I know its computer specific b/c the computer I use at work (same brand, different OS) installs them without a problem. Oh well.
