For those of us who like to save Firefox Add-Ons to our drives and install locally
(download once, install many times..in other words)
,
it would be nice if Adblock 0.5.3.043 were updated.


For those that don't know what I'm talking about:
rename
adblock-0.5.3.043-fx+fl+mz+ns.xpi
to
adblock-0.5.3.043-fx+fl+mz+ns.zip
(xpi files are really zip files)


Open the zip file.
Extract the install.rdf inside the zip file.
Open install.rdf file in Wordpad (or whatever)

You will see this section:
Code:
   <!-- FireFox -->
   <em:targetApplication>
      <Description>
      <em:id>{ec8030f7-c20a-464f-9b0e-13a3a9e97384}</em:id>
      <em:minVersion>0.7</em:minVersion>
      <em:maxVersion>2.0a3</em:maxVersion>
      </Description>
   </em:targetApplication>


What you need to do:
1) Change the 2.0a3 in there to 2.0
2) Save file and put it back in the zip file.
3) Rename the zip file back to xpi.
4) Install Adblock offline (or while online if you want; both methods will work now).

Result without change to install.rdf:
Every time Adblock is installed locally (from your HD, etc) it wants to check compatibility online. If you're not online, a message (eventually) comes up telling you it's not compatible with Firefox 2.0 and can only be installed up to version 2.0a3.

Result when changing install.rdf maxversion property:
It installs while offline just fine, without checking online for anything (as it should).

Would be nice for it to be officially updated for those that don't know what's going on when installing offline, eh?
