Okay, I got the sqlitemanager extension installed.  When I try to
manage the extensions.sqlite database, it balks in a way that might
confirm the suspicion someone stated earlier -- it's corrupt.  I get a
dialog with this content:

SQLiteManager: Error in opening file extensions.sqlite - either the
file is encrypted or corrupt
Exception Message: Component returned failure code: 0x80630001
(NS_ERROR_STORAGE_BUSY) [mozIStorageService.openUnsharedDatabase]

I tried a few other databases, and they seem okay.  So what do I do
about a busted extensions database?
