The version available from the Firefox Add-ons site is configured to install only on FF 3.0pre and not later releases. The author seems to have "forgotten" to update this handy tool, so I have patched the attached version to install on later Firefox releases
Download the file to your PC, then rename the file without the .zip extension, and then open the .xpi file in Firefox (File-Open File) and you should get the normal add-on installation window. Once installed go into Tools-Add-ons-Ubuntu Forums Menu-Options and enable "Add menu to toolbar".
Now works on FF 12.*
