- Feb 20, 2005Hi All,
Thanks! That makes me feel much better and my apologies to
anybody that may have got a bit tee'd off at me for talking about
geeks and idiots. <g> Must be something on my machine. Maybe the
browser; I'll try another later just to see if I can find the
problem of the renaming to zip here.
Just for kicks I renamed a FireFox xpi to zip and it opens up in
WinZip and will extract. So, I figure the xpi format is a
standard zip format and the Mozilla family simply unzips it,
unzips the jar, etc, and installs.
I had originally downloaded in NetCaptor, and just did a FireFox.
FireFox does not change the extension. So, I needed to see if it
was a NetCaptor or IE thing, and leave it to MS, IE is the
culprit that renames the xpi to zip. Maybe IE actually looks into
the file to check for viruses or what have you and sees that it
is a zip format and keeping up with MS tradition they change it
thinking they know best. <g>
So, at least if the problems appears again, we'll know what to
tell the person who needs to install their .zipxpi extension. <g>
The zip will work fine in at least Thunderbird, so I image
FireFox will work the same way. Just click on the All Files in
order to see the zip from the Extension dialog and it'll do its
thing just as if it had the xpi extension.
