  • A combined search and Address bar — one place to either navigate to a website or start a search.

  • Improved add-on management — Add-on Performance Advisor tells you if an add-on is slowing down your browser and allows you to disable or remove it, helping ensure that your browser stays fast over time.
  • Helps control your privacy — Tracking Protection enables you to limit the browser’s communication with certain websites to help keep your information private.
  • Keeps your downloads in order — Download Manager keeps a running list of the files you download from the Internet, notifies you if a file could be malicious, and allows you to pause and restart a download.

Fix for unexpected installation error –203 Firefox addon

November 2nd, 2009 b0ddu Posted in browsers, fixes 2 Comments »

I have recently backed up the Firefox using MozBackup and restored it onto another profile. After the upgrade process, none of the add-ons are working and also wasn’t able to install any new extensions. It was failed because of firefox error code 203.

firefox error code 203

I did some research on firefox knowledge base and found this happens after a software update because of some corrupt extension files. Deleting them can fix a number of extension issues; they will be regenerated the next time you start Firefox.

  • Exit Firefox completely
  • Open your Firefox profile folder as mentioned below on different OS.
    • Windows Vista and Windows 7 – %APPDATA%\Mozilla\Firefox\Profiles
    • Windows 2000 and Windows XP – C:\Documents and Settings\<Windows login/user name>\Application Data\Mozilla\Firefox\Profiles\<profile folder>
    • Linux and Unix – ~/.mozilla/firefox/<profile folder>
    • MAC – ~/Library/Mozilla/Firefox/Profiles/<profile folder>  or ~/Library/Application Support/Firefox/Profiles/<profile folder>
  • Delete below three files or rename them.
    • extensions.ini
    • extensions.cache
    • extensions.rdf

And reopen your Firefox and the add on issue would have been resolved.
