It does not show up under the Sidebar menu. It does not shop up anywhere at all in Firefox (not even in the Extensions dialog after install). It simply disappears.
I am working with full Administrator privileges on Windows XP SP2. I am using Firefox version 18.104.22.168. I've tried the same thing on a computer with no addons installed but the default ones, and the same problem occured.
Just in case, though, here are the extensions I have installed (it's a bit long ):
DNSStuff Toolbar 1.6
ErrorZilla Mod 0.2
Google Notebook 22.214.171.124
IE Tab 126.96.36.19970528
McAfee Site Advisor 26.5
Save Session 188.8.131.52
Session Manager 0.6.1.5
URL Fixer 1.3
Web Developer 1.1.4
Anyways, I tested it on a default install version and it still didn't work. Any ideas?
I have had the same problem, the button will not appear, instead it puts a white bare at the bottom of the browser (Firefox 184.108.40.206 on Mac OS 10.4 & 10.5).
I posted my issue as a comment on the document describing how to setup Clearfox.
Right now I really don't have a clue what the problem could be, but just to rule out something environmental: can you try installing the Clearfox for this community? It's available here:
Also, can you go to Tools --> Error Console. Is there anything in that error list related to Clearfox?
Thanks for your patience!
It works just fine when I install it from Jivespace.
Here's how I installed mine:
Downloaded from JiveSpace Website.
Went to "System->Plugins->Add Plugin".
Hit "Browse" under "Install a new Plugin".
(browsed to clearfox.jar and accepted).
Hit the "Upload" button.
It now shows up in the "Installed Plugins" dialog
There's now a page at /clearspace/cf-about.jspa.
When I click on clearfox.xpi, it asks me to accept the website. I say yes.
It downloads and installs in about 2 seconds. Firefox needs to restart.
Hope that's helpful in some way.
EDIT: There is nothing in the Error Console.
k, so it's definitely an environmental thing then because you were both able to install the plugin from Jivespace but you weren't able to install it from your own servers. Can do me a huge favor? Can you guys download the xpi file that on your server and email me (firstname.lastname@example.org) that xpi file? When the plugin initializes I create the XPI file dynamically and I think something is going wrong at that point.
