    Thank you all and particularly to BUBBA 64

    Cool, I picked up this tidbit of info on the forums. So it sounds like you were able to preinstall nightly tester tools then get add ons that were not workable, if that is the case that is valuable info. I have only used it post upgrade to enable what was already there but not working, let us know if my understanding is correct

    I first un-installed FF 2.0 and then installed FF 3.0 via the Synaptic Package Manager. My extensions from 2.0 were still there of course, just not working. Then I installed the Nightly Tester Tools Extension and had it force the install of all my extensions. Very cool.

    Thanks again

    PS Is there a way to mark the thread solved ?
