With Hardy 8.04RC, FF3 and the need of Foxmarks one runs into
problems ! ;-(

Foxmarks told me, it's for an older version and I installed FF2 parallel
to the existing FF3.

Now I am also having problems installing all needed extensions into
FF2 !!
It brings an installation failure and points to -203 !?

Accordingly to Mozilla support it shall be a FF profile error and 
I will have to do some further tests today to try overcoming:

If impossible/unable: Hardy 8.04 is not my candidate with FF3 !!! ;-( 

Take care before you run into this problem.
Cheers, svobi
