Firefox 4 / Delicious Bookmarks add-on fix

Delicious Bookmarks add-on 2.2.106 does not work with Firefox 4.0.

I did a quick search, found this page, and applied the fix.
Winning!

From the menus select Help > Troubleshooting information
On this new tab, near the top, you’ll see a field called Profile Directory. Click the button in the field to launch Finder (File Explorer for Windows).
In the window which has popped up navigate to the extensions folder. Inside that should be another folder named “{2fa4ed95-0317-4c6a-a74c-5f3e3912c1f9}”. Inside this is a file called install.rdf
Open install.pdf in any plain text editor.
Around line 8 you should see some XML which looks like this: em:maxVersion="4.0b3pre" />
Update this to em:maxVersion="4.0" /> (See we removed the b3pre bit?)
Save the file and restart Firefox.
Boom. The delicious extension will now work.

Install the Nightly Tester Tools add-on.

Select Tools -> Nightly Tester Tools -> Force add-on compatibility

Restart Firefox.

Bask in the glow of a job well done.

So, I was silly and deleted the delicious add-on when I updated realized it didn't work. I can't stand firefox without it. When I try to add it back, it refuses to install because it's incompatible. I tried the Nightly Tester idea but still can't get it to install. Anyone have a bright idea?

Thankyoumuch ....
