Even after deleting my XUL cache, the only way I could get nightly 31 working with Firebird 20031212 was to download the jar and manually put it in my profile.

the .xpi installer never delivered the jar, even though it claimed sucessful installation, and instead created an "adblock-uninstalled" file within the adblock-temp directory.

Did you deinstall (from Adblock's prefs) before running the installer?- that's the only way to upgrade "automatically" right now.
.
I did try to land "overinstall" a while back, but the one guy who tried it had no success.

If you wouldn't mind, do this: open your app-directory, and then the file "Install log". Post all lines from the section (toward the bottom) regarding your "successful" Adblock install.

Yes, I always uninstall the previous nightly first---at least as far as the uninstaller will let me---no matter WHICH build I've tried, I've always gotten a dialog box upon uninstall, saying it can't remove adblock.jar, and I manually delete the jar.

My install log was overwritten this morning by today's build of Firebird, so it doesn't contain any info. re: AdBlock. I'll post it for you regarding the next AdBlock nightly if the issue remains.

I had no problems whatsoever installing nightly 32 on Firebird 20031214.

Only the previously described issue of needing to always remove the previous jar by hand to complete an uninstall remains.
