Add-on Compatibility Reporter

A little help for those using ACR to enable addons Rated 1 out of 5 stars

It is disappointing to see that this particular addon is no longer doing what many others have claimed it can do (i.e. force addons to work).

Fortunately, there are other ways to enable "incompatible" addons, particularly those that are no longer being developed. This example applies to Google toolbar (which appears to be the main addon which brought many of us to ACR). It may work for other addons as well.

1. Go to %APPDATA%/Mozilla/Firefox/Profiles
2. Go to the folder ending with .default
3. Go to extensions
4. For example, Google Toolbar belongs to a folder (other plugins might be installed elsewhere). Look for install.rdf.
5. Look for <em:maxVersion>
6. Change the max version supported to a higher number (preferably higher than the current version of Firefox)
7. Restart Firefox

This review is for a previous version of the add-on (1.1.1-signed.1-signed).
