I'm running:
Firefox release version: 1.0
Mozilla core trunk version: rv 1.7.5 (judging by the userAgent string anyway... [Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-GB; rv:1.7.5) Gecko/20041110 Firefox/1.0])

Platform: Windows XP Professional (like WIndows NT my profile is under 'Documents and Settings')

---->I use this http://www.hacksrus.com/~ginda/venkman/ javascript debugger sometimes
---->with Mozilla Firefox.

I 've been to the venkman pages (http://www.mozilla.org/projects/venkman/) and tried to obtain the debugger 'xpi' package. However, I have no idea what an XPI package is. I've tried clicking install on the Venkman page (http://www.hacksrus.com/~ginda/venkman/) and nothing happens; I've even performed a search on my local harddrive hoping that a Firefox  config directory might have other XPI files there thereby hinting that at the need to simply place the XPI in the right directory (a bit like Photoshops plugins). However, nothing I try gets me a Script dubugger in Firefox: pls help.
