*not* FF extensions) indicating that the file is written in XUL: it has
nothing to do with WinXP. Very often just (double)clicking on the
download button will open the built-in in download manager in FF.
Sometimes (e.g. with some Thunderbird extensions) you have to work in a
different way. There are separate instructions in those cases.
Don't forget to allow the Mozilla extensions site / server to install:
change in Options Possibly you will also have to log in as
Administrator, I don't know, don't use XP.

The Firefox release notes have some good information:
The profile folder is located on these versions of Windows, by default
(It can be specified at another location):
Windows 2000, XP Documents and Settings\<UserName>\Application
Windows NT WINNT\Profiles\<UserName>\Application Data\Mozilla\Firefox
Windows 98, ME Windows\Application Data\Mozilla\Firefox
There is a profiles.ini, and pluginreg.dat and the directory with a
"salted" name for each user in the Firefox directory as listed above.
When you re-install Firefox, just copy the profile folder to the desired
location, and you should be good to go.
