I use Minefield, the Firefox nightlies, but a couple of my addons are unsurprisingly incompatible. Usually adding extensions.checkCompatibility = false and extensions.checkUpdateSecurity = false allows them to install, but after switching to windows 7 and reinstalling Minefield, adding these values does nothing. Is this just a temporary thing with Minefield or something else? I'm at a bit of a loss here so any suggestions would be welcome.
extensions.checkCompatibility.3.7a. needs to be added to about:config as it is hidden by default. Set it to false to disable compatibility checking of add-ons. This new pref is supposed to replace extensions.checkCompatibility. When 3.7a2 of 3.8 comes out the version number in the pref will change. This is a great change because so many sites tell me to set the old pref to false and it causes all the noob users to have a bunch of problems down the road and they always blame Firefox for it.
