Mozilla Firefox is a free open-source web browser; you can download it from www.mozilla.com/firefox/.

3. Why isn't this extension working with my Firefox?

For the extension to work, you must be using version 1.5 or later of Mozilla Firefox. You can check which version you're using by clicking the "Help" menu in your Firefox browser, then selecting "About Firefox."

If you've just installed Web Comments, you'll need to restart your browser. Web Comments must also appear in your browser's list of extensions. To see this list, click the "Tools" menu and then select "Extensions." If Web Comments appears, make sure it's enabled (not grayed out). If it's grayed out, you can enable it by right-clicking the extension name, selecting "Enable" and restarting your browser.
