Re: Why is installing an addon on firefox such a nightmare!

Almost every time I see a statement on technology lists I follow preceedded with the words I heard or something similar, the statement is either wrong or very misleading.  I quoted and linked to the source I got the information from,  a Firefox document that is part of a Wiki by Mozilla.  I see no reason to question its accuracy.  It appears to come from the developers.

written down with them in the Taurat and the Injeel [who] enjoins them
good and forbids them evil, and makes lawful to them the good things
and makes unlawful to them impure things, and removes from them their
burden and the shackles which were upon them; so [as for] those who
believe in him and honor him and help him, and follow the light which
has been sent down with him, these it is that are the successful.
