Sorry, forgot to mention that. I has become something of a second nature
for me to get my extensions from that site.

Strange, for me it did work flawlessly just by clicking on the install
link on the page. No trouble whatsoever. That's on an up-to-date Sarge
box with the default firefox package (FF 1.0).

Not as far as I know. There are some settings, but none will add that
icon to the tabs like you asked for.

Yup, however as I stated I have a default install and I didn't have any
trouble installing both TabX and CTC, so it should be possible for you
too to install them. Hmm, maybe it is because I already had them before
I upgraded to 1.0? I don't know. I had to reinstall them manually after
upgrading though. The automated FF update check didn't think they were
appropriate for my new version somehow...

Sorry, I'd like to help you, but I don't know why it doesn't work for
