Hi,
I recently upgraded to Mozilla 1.5 on Gentoo Linux, which stopped my earlier version of adblock to stop working. So I downloaded the jar file (version 0.5), copied to my chrome directory and restated the browser. But I don't see any changes to the Tools menu, nor does the ad seemed to be getting blocked! Adblock however worked fine on my windows partition. What might be wrong?

thanks in advance

If you were upgrading from anything older than v.5, you'll need to follow these removal instructions. Make sure to delete the "upgrade" jar, then run the installer off the Dev. page.
.
Btw, which chrome-directory did you copy to: root or profile?

Hi,
My mozilla kept crashing on windows, so I decided to follow the same procedure to install adblock. After following the procedure to clean old files. I place adblock.jar in the User Profile::chrome directory. Its not being recognized still, as it does not show up in the Tools menu. What else might I need to do?
Also I wasn't able to reach the adblock site after my posting. I guess it was down?

thanks!

No- the jar-file is specifically for upgrading -- Adblock must already be installed.
.
What you want is the Install-link, just above the Changelog. Mozdev.org has intermittent problems, so you may have to check back a few times before it's responding.
