So far, no addon I've tried to add has worked, but the two I've tried
repeatedly are firebug and adblock.  For fun, I just tried noscript,
flashblock, abine, and weatherfox.  None worked, but the behavior was
always the same.

The progress bar shows it downloading and then switches to "Installing"
but the bar then remains grey.  Switching from the "Get Addons" to
"Extensions" ribbon, each extension shows with the grey "Installing"

After restarting firefox, the previously downloaded extensions are not

Packaged firebug and adblock "work" --- I can see them among the listed
extensions, but since they aren't compatible with FF5, they are greyed
