Well, I just tried it again, and you're right it works. I don't think
it was just a figment of my imagination though. Maybe I had used them
at some point when there were existing bugs. Still don't get the nice
icons (but I can copy those).

Insults? I only responded in kind to Antony, who believes answering a
newbie question is 'breast feeding'.
Please, not in front of the kids.
Well to bring this back on track (maybe), I also have installed Tbird
and Ffox from the executables on sarge. One of the reasons is the
debian packages don't have the cool icons. Ok maybe that's a lame
reason. The other reason is I have trouble installing themes and
extensions using the debian packages. Why is this the case? Is it
because they try to install into the application (/usr) instead of my
home directory, and then don't have the right permissions?
I think you brought this up a while back. Most people don't have this
problem. Perhaps you could tell us which extensions you are trying to
install and how you are trying to install them?
