    I cannot find a version of spoofstick compatible with Firefox 2.0. I did find a work around, but I cannot make this workaround function for me as I am unable to open the .xpi file once I download.

    Can someone:

    1. See if the workaround shown below works and
    2. Provide a solution that will work for me?

    If you're looking to install the Spoofstick plug-in on Firefox 2.0, the default .xpi won't install it (says FF 2.0 is not supported or something yadda yadda).

    This workaround will fix that issue.
    - download the spoofstick-firefox.xpi (the file itself)
    - open the .xpi with Winzip (should be a total of 3 files)
    - find the file called install.rdf
    - open install.rdf with Notepad
    - look for this line: <em:maxVersion>1.6a2</em:maxVersion>
    - change 1.6a2 (or whatever the number is) to 2.0 or higher
    - save and close it (select "yes" when it asks to update the zip archive)
    - install the plug-in

    Here's a site where you can download the file (it won't auto-install it)

    I can confirm the workaround works. click here to download the modified extension

    I forgot if its normal, but the extension doesn't install a toolbar. Instead you make a new toolbar and drag the spoofstick icon there or you can also put the spoofstick icon into the navigation toolbar.

    Let me ask, is it OK to modify and then even distributethe the modified extension? I think u neeed at least permission of the author. Am i right?

    "modify" might of been the wrong word; i just bumped the max version to 3.0.
