Okay.  I was following instructions from NoOp, to install the firefox
addon.  It semi-worked in that it could view most of the FF databases
but not the extensions.sqlite.
I did this because NoOp gave me enough information that I was sure i
was installing what he intended.

So I installed squliteman and sqliteman-doc.  It seems to open
extensions.sqlite okay, but only if Firefox is NOT open.
There are 10 add-ons listed, and while it's a bit hard to be sure
which is which, I'm guessing the one with
optionsURL=chrome://nopscript/content/noscriptOptions.xul and
is the one for NoScript, but I don't know why it says "chrome:".

All 10 have 1 for visible and active, and 0 for userDisabled,
appDisabled and pendingUninstall.

I'm not sure where to go from here.
